I am having a hard time finding another '68 RS/SS with this style of bucket seat.  Does anyone know if this is possibly correct, like a rare seat option?  The only thing I'v seen that is close is in a '69.  This is the only weird thing about this car, although I haven't seen another one with the huge m/c and  4 caliper front disc brakes, but I know that was an option on this RS/SS.

I have seen a few 68's with similar seats.
Isn't that the costum buckets with the optional headrests?

Looks like your car came with the headrest option. To make sure that these are not 9 seats or headrests that were mocked up to fit, check out Ed's site in the link below. You will have to pull the headrest out of the seat to check it.

That is a custom interior (RPO Z87) with head restraints (RPO AS2) unless Ed's site tells you otherwise.

Thanks guys, it looks like this is a factory option custom interior w/headrest option.  I just haven't seen much of them, even on convertible and other high options cars.  I sure wish I had a build sheet on this car.  I just can't get every option answer without it you know.  I've had some pretty large offers and some real jaw-dropping going on over this car since I took it out of hibernation though.  When I started working on it, I didn't think it was all that special.  I've had several people now inform me of what I'm dealing with.  It's amazing how many people want to strike up a conversation at a car show over something that is dull, and the tires are dry-rotted, but they really know how to spot the special stuff I guess.

I have this same interior in my '68 Z/28, only in white (parchment).  The white interior looks great with the white Z/28 stripes!    Smiley
