No Cats! Looks like you also have 77 front turn signals & were High back buckets an option in 78, I thought they didn't come out till the solid top?

That is remarkably clean and sharp looking !

I haven't found any good source of real seat covers lately,.. just the cheesy knit stretch ones that look bad and don't protect much.

I thought cats were required after 74? If not when were they required?
Cats were required from 74 and on for cars, but they weren't required for trucks until 79 or 80. At least that's what I was told when I put duals on mine.

79 first year for cats, Ca may be different.
amber lens were first available in mid feb of 78.
high backs became optional on SE's and TD sports in 78.
there was a high back optional in 77 only w/the Boca Raton interior. they were shaped differently than 78 and later.
