I assumed the ET headrests ended about 68, but am not sure. Every one I had 
had no reading lamps. I have a set of nice later , forward leaning style, 
the same color. They will interchange.I am not sure if either is better; but 
I was rearended about 25 years ago, driving a 2000TC with ET headrests. I 
was stopped at a light, and a lady out celerating her birthday rearended me, 
doing about 40 MPH. . The rear of th rover looked terrible, the front 
seatbolts ripped out, and the seat tipped back to the back seat.I was 
wearing a seatbelt, and was not affected.Naturally, her insurance company 
was very anxious to settle with me, and have me sign a release.I think I 
accepted about $1500, which seemed a lot back then, unbolted all the bad 
panels, and bolted on good panels the same color, and fixed it in a few 
hours.I think I had to bang out the base about a half inch, by the bootlid.I 
certainly will vouch for the ET headrests, and Ralph Nader's statement in 
"Unsafe at any Speed, about the P6,that"All Cars should be built like this"
