If seat belts were originally fitted to the car you need to keep them fitted. Lap belts were not legal in the UK in 1965 so you need to fit lap/diagonal belts. Failing to do so could result in a fine or, more importantly, serious injury in the event of an accident. Not fitting them could invalidate your insurance which could lead to a claim against you by any injured passenger. Angus's very original 1965 FHC has the original lap/diagonal belts fitted.
