    I was recently able to locate a hard to find item for my 69 300 by searching for Newport parts (a 300 search always kicks back the new ones, even with the year specified).
    That noted, I am planning to replace/upgrade the front buckets. They're a little ratty and I wouldn't mind a headrest. Which models (even outside the C universe) would have seats that would bolt directly into my car without any modifications? Seeing as I'm looking for white seats, preferably with a head rest, I want to cast as wide a net as possible. I'm also thinking about the back bench as well down the road.

    Arnie: I think you would be ahead of the game by re-doing the original seats you have. Legendary should have the covers, foam, etc. you need.

    If Legendary seat covers are used you will need the little metal buckles in the seat backs. They are not included in the reproduction covers. Back seat covers are easy to replace but I would recommend having the fronts professionally installed.

    Headrests were optional, then standard for your model. Plus they were also used on A and B bodies. Redo your seats and add the headrests.

    Please want big $$$ now for bucket seats. I'd mark a car way down if the seats are swapped.
