Look like my 72 seats also, I wonder if that "TEX 75" stamp means 1975.

Is there a slit cut out of the top of the seat back for the shoulder harness to go through?

The 75s have a three point above the seat. No slit in seat. Convertibles are only two point.

Those seat covers are original to 1975.

Thanks for all the input.I contacted Al Knock interiors with the picks and they got back to me with  in the hour  and assured me that they are 1972-1974 seats and foam. Just a heads up for others. Thanks
