    Early 911L Headrest issues

    My 911L preceded the 1968 headrest requirements. Prior comments on this forum suggested the 356 headrests which bolt to the back of the seat are considered acceptable. Anyone have a recommendation to source them?
    Any help is appreciated.

    Ahhhh the sixties... I envision myself one early Saturday morning wearing plaid shorts, black shoes with white socks smoking a cigarette heading to the hardware store to buy a bag of nails.
    SWB cars are an acquired taste however once acquired theirs no turning back.

    I got a lovely pair from Autos International that I installed on my 63 B coupe. Check out the following Youtube video made by Mike of Mike's Restorations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68kuxLQwHL0
