I have the 1987 vert

Unfortunately everyone is right, lap belt only in back. This does make kid seats problematic. In my case I did mount my daughter's forward facing carseat back there using the lap belt and a makeshift top-anchor for the seat's upper hook so I had three-point security. I used a forged M8 thread engine lifting eye into an existing M8 threaded boss on the backside of the rear bulkhead and attached the upper hook from the car seat to that. Now that my daughter is in a booster seat, so she can't ride back there at all because a booster seat with only a lap belt is definitely not good.
Long term plan is to swap the entire rear bulkhead with an '88- version, but that is a lot of cutting and welding. If you are 'very shopping and have kids, best path is to just get an '88 or newer.
