    Yes, Barracuda would be the equivalent of a Camaro, ‘Cuda would be along the the lines of a SS, AAR a Z28.

    This car had a Hellcat engine swap.

    I think Bonzo was referring to a 2 passenger 1970 Barracuda. And there wasn't.

    In my opinion, if you are restoring an old car to pristine show quality then you are not burning up rubber therefore, you keep your original equipment.

    If you are enhancing a car and we are all doing that on this site why wouldn't you have at least the minimum 3 point ... I mean I race my car and I have done the necessary changes to meet NHRA track needs ... My car runs low 12 and I can bop up to 125 in 4th from 60 in under 6 seconds on a highway ... I am definitely going to have a 3 point ... hell I have been looking at new seats and have been thinking of a 5 point that connects to the floor.

    Think I would keep the lap belt ... the spine splitter ... the paralyzer of rear seat occupants.

    You obviously haven’t seen the back seat, they were only 2 passenger.

    Have you seen the back seat of a Cuda? The E-body cars ALL had back seats (unless modified for racing purposes) and no less of a rear seat than a camaro. Actually more a a back seat, they had a bench Vs the camaro’s split seating.

    I didn't say it was a comfortable back seat, but as gramps shows, it's no different than a Camaro back seat.

    Last time I was in the back seat of a Camaro was in 1969. I didn't like it then and I sure as hell don't want to do it now...:)

    There's the back seat of the Cuda in question, looks like 2 battery boxes. Looking at the other pics, hard to see any type of seat belts, lap or otherwise.

    Please don't do the shoulder belts going to the back bottom floor, spine compressor.

    So not even close to stock, clearly heavily modified, looks to be for a mega sound system.
