Looks like 78-87 GM metric car-, Buick Regal, Olds Cutlass, Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevy Monte Carlo, Malibu, El Camino. Fabric and shape pattern specifically looks like Regal or Cutlass. Not sure how headrest comes out, CRS, I think you just push headrest to the side or center, to make the center post lean over and it comes loose, might be a lever you have to trip also right at the top of the seat at that plastic moulding around the post.

Eric is right about the cars it could have come out of. You need to slip a flat piece of metal down the front of the flat metal piece that is attached to the headrest. This will disengage the headrest, and it will come right out.

A clean "de-toothed" hacksaw blade will work if you don't have anything else to use. Tape the end so it doesn't mar the chrome.

The hacksaw blade is a good idea. Here's what I use. It's a piece of flexible spring steel made into a headrest removing tool. Just push it all the way down and pull up on the headrest, it will come right out. The headrest needs to be disengaged from the spring steel stop that holds it at the holes in the headrest shaft. This headrest was from an '86 Cadillac.

Pull the headrest up as far as it will go. Push the tool down next to the shaft of the headrest and you will feel it hit something. Push it down a little farther, about an inch or so and that should release the headrest.
