Standard seats but a deluxe dash with pull strap, something isn't right unless all 79's came with the deluxe dash, IDK

Standard door panels too. Was the pull strap an option maybe?

Interesting that you guys brought that up.  I always thought all the birds had came with that.  It wasn't until I bought my '70 did I find out this wasn't the case.  I had to skip a lot of yards before I found one.

Dash may have been replaced with a deluxe dash pad. i have never seen a standard interior with a deluxe dash. not saying it did not happen, but i would say it has been replaced. by the way worth every penny if it is as nice as you say. i think that is a really good buy, even in the slumped economy.

Looks good. The seats look like 77's. I would check it out and make sure all numbers match buy the PHS and be sure.
They are standard vinyl seats, and are correct.

I don't think so.  I suspect it originally had deluxe interior and during the resto they bought standard door panels and seats.  Why do I think that's the case?  The dash has the grab bar which is part of the deluxe interior package.  I don't think that fact changed from 78 to 79.

Oops didn't see solar gold's post which says the same thing.

probably correct that the seats and door panels were changed during resto, more likely than the dash changed, though I do have an 81 that the dash was changed. Look and see if the rear plastic quarter trim has the ash trays built in.

Could be a changed dash!  Ironically, I have a standard camel tan dash that I'm going to install in my Y88.  But you're right, it's more likely that the door panels and seats were changed.

What are the dash differences between standard and deluxe interiors? Just the pull strap?
