1967 Fairlane Shoulder Harness & Headrests Option

I am faced with a dilemma and need some input from some of you seasoned Fairlane owners.
I've been restoring my 67 Fairlane for more than 30 years and see no end in sight. Several years ago I purchased a donor car and had the interior of that vehicle reupholstered. I removed my original seats and door panels and placed them in storage. I am considering selling off some parts to raise money for a new paint job and here lies my problem. In 1967 Ford offered for the first time Shoulder Harness's and Headrests for the Fairlane. These are listed in the Fairlane sales brochure on page 12 as a new option. The original bucket seats in my Fairlane 500 XL have the mounting brackets for the headrests and I have the original NOS pair of headrests for the car. I have been unable to find another Fairlane with the headrest option and have never seen one with the shoulder harness option. I am toying with the idea of selling the bucket seats and the headrests as a pair. Can anyone tell me what they may be worth? I respect your opinions and look forward to your answers.

rare option parts

I was just at a Last of the year show in Ottawa ,ont., & there was a 64 F;lane there with , shoulder belt option, which I'd never seen before. He found all the parts, including the roof bolt thro that holds the over the shoulder harness, he told me that the shoulder belt option was always installed by the dealer. Wouldn't divulge what he paid for them, when I asked "were the parts more than 200 bucks he just said -Oh, yea!
Doesn't help much I know but like all rare option parts, It all depends on how bad someone wants them.
