The frames of the seats are the same. Would need different foam and covers to be correct. Easy fix though. If they are a 66, they should not have a locking mechanism for the back. Should just push forward. Will have different seat tracks. Don't think anyone actually makes repo's for the tracks for nova's.

And from what I've learned with mine, the 67s have the release button on the side. And so do the 68s. BUT the 68s have the button in a slightly different spot and the tracks make the seat tip a bit when set on level ground. I found out the hard way. Got some fabbing to do on my frames.

Also ask Chevynuts88. He's my seat hero!!! He knows a ton about this. There was a thread here a little while ago and he gave out a lot of info on the subject.
