Can one install a shoulder harness on a '65 hardtop Futura with minimal fuss?

A part of my California dream has been to own a classic American car, something that leans towards "fun and irresponsible" a little more than the austere compact cars I've always owned. I've been car-free since 2002, so I've decided that if I don't have a "dream car" at this point in my life, I probably never will. I'm finally in a position to buy, and I've got what I want pretty well narrowed down. Now it's just a matter of finding the right '65 Falcon Futura (hey, to each his own!).
Browsing the craigslist ads yesterday, something occurred to me that hadn't before: old cars don't come with shoulder belts. This puts a damper on my enthusiasm. Does anyone have any tips or experience with adding shoulder belts to cars that weren't meant to have them?
