Name this A-Body Interior?

Hey I'm new here... I registered because I have a question about interior that I'm having a really hard time getting an answer to.
My project (67 Pontiac Tempest, 2dr post, console shift, 400cid /700R4) is a frankencar with an interior out of some other kind of A-body. I actually like it better than the Pontiac interior and its in really nice shape. Needs a little work but it's a good starting point. Car is a street/strip restomod and I have no plans to turn it into a GTO clone or restore it to original.
Intention is to find a passenger-side bucket to pull a panel and fix the drivers-side bucket. I did this on a monte and it worked great. Also need carpet for the door panels. Car is getting painted satin black and candy pearl cobalt so I intend to dye the teal cloth braid in the seats and door panels blue.
Anybody know what this is? Closest I could come was some year of Chevelle but not quite the same. Photos are when I first bought the car so the vinyl is kind of dusty and there are service manuals and stuff everywhere. Sorry!
Thanks!!!

No 64-72 A-body ever had bolsters on the bucket seats. What do the backs of the buckets look like?

Hmmm roger that and thanks...its weird because all the panels fit perfectly and havent been altered.
The backs of the buckets are plain, they dont have any hard supports, its 1pc vinyl and no chrome/stainless anywhere. Seat rails and floor pan havent been altered either. I guess i should edit the title...
Also carpet on door panels appears to match the rest of the carpet but thats vague, carpet is carpet.

Those look similar to Monte Carlo etc.. Buckets, maybe 73-77? A/G body, some came with swivel bottom mounts. The tops look different tho'.

It's a 64-65 Tempest I think. But those are NOT the original seats in front, PERIOD. That I know, they are later model seats.

Thanks guys for your suggestions. Its tripping me out because this braided trim can be found throughout the interior and like i said nothing has been cut/trimmed etc. Too weird. Maybe ill have to bite the bullet and have everything re-covered eventually just for my own sanity.

Are there light blue welts on the seats and door panels, or is that an optical illusion? The front and rear seats and door panels could be original and have been re-done. Because everything matches, that would be my guess, and especially because of the blue welts (which would not have been original) and the fact that the rear seat and door panels fit so well. Also, the door panels are not OEM quality.

Weird. The guy i bought it from was going to clone it and told me when he bought it he was told the interior came out of a wrecked something ir other that he couldnt remember. Before that it had been a first owner to grandson transfer.
and yes thats a teal welt and some of the vinyl has a tealish patina, hard to explain.
Ow well ill just get everything recovered to my specs, the buckets will come out periodically for the track anyway. Thank you!!!

The reason I think it's a re-do is the door panels and the welts. The original door panels would not have the pleats sewed in, and the different colored welts would not have been on the door panels or the seats. It may be out of a different car, but the interior has been re-done.
