    The console was also available on Sportwagons, not just coupes.

    Um, well, you got me there. I've never looked inside of a Sportwagon (Load Runner, or whatever term it uses) to know.

    The console was optional. Standard was buckets and a column shift. As far as that goes, if somebody ordered bucket seats in a sedan (and I scrapped one that had them), there's no reason it couldn't have a console too.

    How much are you asking for the console? I'm interested in it

    My 76 Roadrunner has high back buckets. Did these come in the roadrunner. I see a lot of low back buckets in F bodies.

    yes highbacks in 76 and 77. mostly adjustable headrest buckets later except the duster in 79 and prob a couple others.
    the early highbacks ave very comfortable if in good shape.

    The volare I am considering going to buckets is a 79 I will redo as a slant duster. I rather make it look right for what I will make it. So you are saying the 79 duster and RR packages are high back buckets. I have a 76 RR with those buckets and like you said, they are comfortable.
