Guys I need to know if these seat covers from WW would work on these seats
They are the tan basket weave for 67

http://www.wolfsburgwest.com/cart/DetailsList.cfm?ID=113881005ATN

My front seats looks to be late 67 with the release on top although its not in the pic but you can see the rod, and I'm not sure about my rear seats but I'm assuming it's original style for my 65.

Also what makes the tan covers for 66 only almost twice the price as the 67??

In all technicality.. 65-66-67 seats are basically the same size and shape.. so any of the three year selection of covers can be used with any of those three years.


What makes them year specific.... the materials, patterns, colors and seat back latches and lock styles.

65 no seat back lock
66 lower seat back lock release gray knob
67 early lower seat back lock release black knob
67 mid/late upper seat back lock release.

1966 has a very unique pattern pressing that until a few years ago.. was non existent in reproductions..
Why higher price for a 66...?
Simply.. supply and demand... if you want it right.. you will pay.. plus its a one year only deal.. so... makes em kinda "special" Laughing .. and that goes for the door panels too.
