These very early cars had a loud 'fasten seatbelt' buzzer warning along with the light on the dash. My father had one of the early cars like this one (his was Feb '87 registered) - and the first thing he had done on the car was to have the seat belt warning disconnected. It was excessively loud and intrusive and removed from slightly later cars so it is likely he wasn't alone in this view. This could have been what has happened with your car.
Cheers for the post mate, yup, the early car has grown on me. Haven't posted lately, have been busy with work etc, but managed to do a bit of pordding about last weekend, trying to find rust. Have found some at the front of the sills and the bits around the rear window. Need to decide the next steps!
Also the seat belt buzzer has only ever come on once, have never heard it since lol
