'81 Olds Station Wagon interior - MUSCULAR?

My '81 Custom Cruiser has a bored, balanced cammed 403 with a TH400, but the interior is shot and in the original nerdy configuration.

Thinking of re-doing interior with a 442-ish look, buckets, console, etc. Authenticity is not required, but I don't want it to look stupid, either.

So any of the new style bucket seats they put in Hondas would not look right. Maybe I should look for some older buckets and have them re-done.

Fortunately, there were plenty of big GM wagons of that vintage made [and a wide range of years to choose from], so interior parts shouldn't be too difficult.

Finding matching plastic parts parts is very difficult, however. would painting these parts [like the side panels in cargo area] be feasible?

So what do you think? A muscle car look for a big wagon?
