Sorry, no pics. I bought the car from my neighbor as a "basket case". He dismantled the car 6-7 years ago, and put everything in boxes.
Some previous owner had an idea of converting the car to a 76 TA, which also included installing a T-top roof from a 76.
As long as its not original anymore, Im thinking of converting it to a 77, mostly because of the large rear window

Another question I have is the steering column, I have been told they were all black until 77 or 78 with SEs and Y88 golds

It's an Esprit, they were colour-coded throughout the years while others were black only until the Y88 and onto '79 models.

I have a 1974 Pontiac Interior trims and Exterior Colors brochure here, not that it goes into too much detail. It lists the Pinemist Green paint (N) being available with Green Morokide Vinyl (941) with the custom seat trim option. No other green interior colour is listed for Firebirds, although many are listed for other models. The 941 green code was also a 1974 only option.

OK,now I am totally confused. The picture you posted looks just like mine. If that is the "941 code" then why is mine a "594" code on the data plate AND on the build sheet? What do you guys think? I have been to a GM dealer in Calgary and the parts book from 1974 lists 2 codes,"941" and "594".

I have a question. Went to the GM dealer today,asked to look through the old 1974 firiebird master parts book. Way cool reading for parts numbers and everything. But the trim code,there is NO 941 green for 1974. Only 594. I have a picture of this page on my phone that I would like to post,but I cant figure out how to get it to my computer. If someone would like to see it(in the meantime) e-mail me your # and I can text you this page with attachment(dont forget area code). I dont understand why the master parts book from gm does not have 941 green,just 594 green,when everyone else has seen the 941 on data plates  and not the 594. Maybe this number swithed in early in the year? My car was built at the Norwood plant. One of lifes little mysteries. Anyway, from now on, If anyone asks,...my interior color is "just green"
