to me it resembles more something you would find in a BDSM dungeon then a car seat.
The seat is all one unit. The metal frame base was placed directly on the car's seating surface. From an AB's perspective, I personally hated to see the plastic shells taking over the baby seating products back then. As classicseats mentioned, he can't fit in this one very well. The shell is much more restrictive which is better for a small child in an accident situation, but not so good for an *B that likes to use them. That's why I like the older pre-shell car seats and other baby seating products the best.

I do have it lying around. The auto seat belt threads through the metal frame to secure the seat. And as a matter of fact, this model does have a top tether strap like modern car seats. The only problem back then was cars had no place to attach the strap. You had to drill a hole in the rear package tray and bolt in an anchor point.
nice seat classic seats, wonder though which car seats can you sit in?
maybe the baby baby sitter? looks like that has a widish base. The cosco dorel safe n easy also looks like a fun seat to sit in.
I have tested a cosco touriva, and can fit into that. had a t shield model. that was fun to harness into. pelvis was a bit sore afterwards though, as very tight fit.
