Interesting to see the pics.

The 1973 Olds Toronado was the first passenger air bag-equipped cars intended for public sale as an option, but driver side air bags became available on mid-70s 6 Buick/Olds/Cadillac full size cars as options. Not like they sold a ton of them, though.

The air bag systems were actually conjured up in the early 1950s. It wasn't until 1968 that they developed a sensor-deploy system close to what we have today. VERY early designs even had an AIR PUMP to inflate the bags. I guess you had to go real slow to get those to work as intended.

Technically, it was Ford that jumped out first by having some non-public cars available with air bag systems as early as 1971. And Chrysler was the first to have air bags as standard equipment in the 80s.

Here's a pic of a 74 Olds 98 during crash testing. Note the air bag.
