Just thought I would pass some how to info on. I recently purchased a 1969 Eliminator Clone. Problem was it had an XR7 interior. Over last the 6 months I have been collecting all the correct parts. I was unable to locate a set of 1969 high back seats at a resonable price. I found a set of 1970 for 100.00. Converting the 1970 to 1969 style took all of a couple of hours (seat covers and foam removed). Basically all you need to do is remove the latch and rod assembly from the 1969 XR7 seats, drill a hole in the lower latch of the 1970 seats to accept the rod and then drill the holes to mount the 1969 assembly to the the 1970 seat. Once complete cut the 1970 lower latch off just in front of the snap ring that holds it on. If anyone needs pics let me know.
