The way I heard it was:

At the time of the importation of the Brat into the US there was a tariff on trucks, but not on small cars. So, the Subaru folks put the seats and belts in the back so it could haul passengers, making it NOT a truck, so they didn't have to pay import duties.

In the US it's a state-by-state issue. F'rinstance, used to be legal in Hawaii, aren't any more. Are still legal in Montana ('corse, almost EVERTHING is legal in Montana).

I have no idea 'bout legality in OZ.

Yep, the real west...we can carry people in the back of our Brats (Brumbys) and we can carry guns to keep them safe!

IN Oregon, I believe the law is you must have all the seats with belts available filled first, then you can pile in the back, but since there is belts with the jump seats no problem. My friend and I are going to install some into his brat...some one cut them out along the line...so we went to the junkyard with a small generator and a cut off grinder...got the whole setup for $50.!!! :headbang:

Oh yeah, if you look in the back of your Brumby...you'll either see spots by the cab, on each side, that have threaded holes or just raised squares in the bed, that's where the belt buckles are fastened. I'll try to get you pics.
