Are you looking for bucket seats with headrests or just the headrests?

They are the same as 69-72.The only difference is the caps that cover the tops of the mounting system.69's chrome with a little round lever to release and lock70-72 are chrome with a flat lever,68 are interior color match and have the madrid grain plastic covers

 John is correct. The unique part for 68 is the way that the headrest stays in position when raised and are 1968 only. There are indentations on the front facing bars that when raised, sit in a tapered raised bracket that is fastened internally on the seat back frame. 1969 and up have the indentations on the side of the bar and are held and released but the mechanism at the opening, externally. Some other subtle differences with the headrests but this is probably too much information already.
If you're not concerned with correct for the year use the '69 up headrests. 99.9% won't know and if they're down on the top of the seat nobody will know.
