Never seen factory buddy seat between bucket seats that had pattern sewn into it, you might want to check if those are covers hogringed over the original upholstery, such as could be bought from J.C. Whitney catalogs.  Besides the upholstery pattern the only other thing that looks possibly added are the side mouldings. Looks to be in great condition, especially for a convertible. The car is too far away (and too green) for me to think about it but any serious buyer is going to ask about those two things.

I think that's orginal interior, it had sheep skin covers on it when I got it for the last 20+ years but I'm no mopar expert ..

I agree that the upholstery pattern is incorrect. Also the top of the front seats are missing the federally-mandated head restraints that were in all cars by 1969. It appears the restraints were removed and the seats were covered with something in an incorrect pattern that looks out of place.

The head restraints were a January 1969 mandate. The earlier cars didn't need to have them but they were optional if you wanted to order them. The build sheet, if it can be found, would answer many questions and enhance the car in buyer's minds. Good places to check for a build sheet are in the bucket seat back springs behind the outer covers, in the springs of the seat cushions or behind the glovebox insert. The upholstery pattern could be checked for availability by researching sales brochures. Just looking at the closeups of the body lines shows nice, even creases, a very good indicator of a solid body on this one that could be verified by an in person inspection. A photo of the way the trailer hitch is attached would be a good idea as well as photos of the underside. The pentastar added to the driver side fender could have been from way back, quite a few people added them because they didn't like having it on the passenger side only. Again, this seems to be a really great shape, honestly well kept car.
