Seems being tied to the front seat risers would add a lot of rigidity.
There don't seem many pictures of this car on the internet. They must be keeping the specs secret or something. There are some pictures here: autoblog.com/2018/05/09/1965-shelby-gt350r-mustang-original-venice-crew-review/. It looks there's a roll cage and a 5 point racing harness inside the car. The bolt visible at the rear of the extended floor support may tie into these added safety features. And it may add just enough extra rigidity while keeping the car light.
