I installed 69 headrests on my 67. They are too low for me, I'm 6'1". These might be able to adjust higher.

I checked with the seller and they are not adjustable. How'd you install yours?

I added a frame to the seatbacks when I was putting on new upholstery.

Default Nice work!

I am restoring a 65' with my son and it will be his when he turns 18 (if he turns 18 .. ah the joys of raising boys.). I already plan on putting in 3-way seat belts but was considering buying bucket seats from a junk yard because of there are not any headrests. But, know I am considering this alternative.

Besides the added piece to the seat frame, was there any other modification that had to be done to make this possible?

Thanks,
-matt

Hi Matt,
No other mods were necessary. The metal plates I added gave me something to bolt the headrest brackets to.
I did have to make a slit in the seat cover though.
