The ET style headrests were offered for the Mark III 3 Litre and always had the rear seat reading lamps fitted. They were faced in leather and this continued right through the P5 B production run to 1972/3.

I am not sure whether they were offered for the P6 prior to teh Mark III 3 Litre, but some mor reasearch with the parts catalogues might reveal the answer to this question.
Initially they had leather coverings, but by the late 60s they had changed to using leathercloth.

The teardrop style rests were introduced with the NADA 3500S automatic, but for all other markets the ET ones were the usual optional extra until the 1974 season cars came out in late 1973 when the teardrop style ones were fitted as standard to the V8 models.
