Different size 1969 Camaro Headrest

I have what I was sure was a 69 Camaro headrest. I needed to replace one of my headrests as it was ripped. I found a single headrest at a swap meet, and bought it. It has the bend in the bar, and a date code of "12-5-68-2" stamped on it. The hole punched in the lower half of the bar is a circle, whereas, my other headrests have a date of April 1969, and a square hole punched in the lower bar. watch latest action movies- What is really confusing though is that my four original known Camaro headrests that I have are all approx. 13-3/4" across. Whereas, the one I bought that is dated 12-5-68-2, is only 13" across. It is smaller, and the underside plastic cover does not fit and it sticks out over the sides.

It looks in every way like a 69 Camaro headrest. I read the article on headrests here, but cannot find out why this one headrest I have smaller. It is not a 67 or a 68 as it has a December 1968 date code, and a bent bar, which from what I understand, is indicative of 69. So, what do I have? Is this from a Firebird? Were Firebird headrests smaller? comedy movies free and watch horror movies online
Is there another car using a headrest like this? Any help would be great.

Hey, sorry that you haven't had a reply to this. I don't think many of us here would be able to answer this question but I'll see what I can dig up later. That is if you haven't already found an answer.

You maybe having a problem that I had many years ago. My 69 was manufactured in California and some of the parts that I ordered from East coast suppliers didn't always work. You might want to check where your car was made.
