I believe those bosses are the anchor bolt locations for the rear seat shoulder belt.

Junkyard, ebay, perhaps LMCTruck.com or ClassicTruck.com...

i don't know what it looks like so it's hard for me to know what i'm looking for.
lmc got none, to find a k5 in Israeli junkyards is like winning a lottery and i couldn't find anything on eBay either. i just need a picture of that thing in order to know what i'm looking for more clearly

Get looking. Google Image search might help. A search for "K5 rear seat belt" might just work.

A retractor bolts straight to the top and there is another buckle for it in the seat. It really isn't something I would go looking for unless you are being forced into it due to regulations. Bad things can happen if someone is belted in and the vehicle is rolled.

you're right on the money. it is only due to safety regulations which are strict in Israel.
i must have those seat belts in order to drive with four passengers.

If you need shoulder belts in the back, I would fab a roll cage and bolt the shoulder belts to the roll cage, not to the top. Just safer that way.

If you don't go that route, then get two more buckles to mount to the seat, and two retractors to bolt to the top. Generic stuff will work.
