I assume they have plastic backs. Those are 68 seats. I think they are Cutlass but they might be Buick. At any rate that is only the covers as they are 68 A body seats which means everything but the covers are Chevelle,GTO, Lemans, Cutlass, 442, Skylark,GS.
How about a close up pic of the headrest escutcheons?

:cool: Late '68 model year GM seats with optional headrests. The seat covers speak American Motors to me (as in ugly).

Value: Cores.

Actually they could even be Chevelle seats as 68 was the year some Chevelles got Buick/Olds/Pontiac interiors due to a strike (as the story goes). Headrests were an option in 68. The pic of the escutcheons will tell if they are truest 68 headrests as it is possible to add headrests to 68 seats.

Yes those are real 68 headrests and they are complete. I’d say they are worth
$700.00-$1K.

They are kind of rare with the headrests so that makes them worth more. You may not realize but buckets seats are a real pain and very expensive to ship. I would not ship them so listing them on eBay would not be an advantage. I’d try Craigslist (prepare to deal with flakes) and maybe here but stress local pickup. Maybe even Facebook.

They are either out of a 1968 Skylark OR a 1968 Chevelle Concours. There were a few 1968 Chevelles that got Buick Skylark or Pontiac interiors due to parts shortages. I have a 68 Chevelle concours with the Skylark interior, and I'm about to convert from bench to buckets with that exact seat minus headrest...

Somebody with deep pockets will want them because of the unobtanium headrest stuff.

I'd start at $900 and see what offers come in.
To get top dollar, take off the seat back plastics and take good photos of the inside and under the bottoms, good photos of the headrests (note any cracks or lack there of) pics of those headrest bezels for sure...

Fyi- These seats run about $150 each to ship via UPS, I just sent a pair this fall.

Good luck!

68 Concours was not the only Chevelle to receive B/O/P interiors in 1968. There are documented Malibu coupes and SS's too.
