All Strato bucket frames were the same across board for GM cars, they just had different sliders and slider feet because of the different floors. The dimensions changed a bit over the years, but none of those changes were model specific, simply adaptations to comfort and crash test expectations.
Are yours head rest equipped? I can't tell, but in one picture they appear to be. Also, the plastic trim and center button on the back is indicative of the 69-72 Strato seats (Nova's got ugly single-piece backs for 72).
So in short, yes, you have the correct seats, you'll just need to source foams and skins. I hope you have the head rests, if not, they can be found after market. Rebuilding Strato seats is very easy. Take them apart carefully so you can see where GM hog ringed them on the middle of the seat base and back, it affecst the finished appearance. Also, inspect the base springs and wires for any breakage, they reproduce those as well. Last but not least, sometimes the frames warp so check them out and fix as needed. Nothing sucks more than finishing a seat restoration, sitting in them, and realizing your seats have a permanent gangster lean.
Good luck man, I love these seats, they are my favorite and look right at home in Late 60's early 70's GMs.
