I’m starting on my interior and looking for seat covers to replace my old torn ones(pics below). Having a hard time online finding this color and bench seat style seat covers to replace these old ones. There’s several bench seat styles online and I just want to make sure I get the correct one.

73 GTS formal

Thanks in advance!

Not sure, but I think you have 74-up seats.
(Adjustable headrests).

no thats a 73 sport bench for sure. I think that color tan is ginger and most of the replacement pre made seat kits are more basic colors like black, white, blue and maybe a dk brown.

I do see ginger as a color option with most online sites but wasn’t sure if ginger represented this tan/beige color. I’m putting in new carpet this week so I’m trying to find something while the seats are out. Might end up doing what Johnny said and go to a local upholstery shop.

Thanks all for the advice/help.

Ginger is darker than that. I've seen several 1973 Torinos with this color interior, perhaps Parchment may be the color.

This is Ginger:
