I can't say for sure, because I have a '77 Midget.  I heard that you just 
pull real hard on the headrest to remove it.  After that, you can stick it 
back in and it will come out easier next time, but still work okay.  I tried 
it, and sure 'nuff, they came out when I pulled up hard.  (Watch where you 
stand.  The force can knock you over!)

I don't know for sure, but the detent that holds them may be a plastic piece 
that breaks when you do what I did.  To do it right, you really have to take 
the whole seat apart.  I guess it depends on whether you are restoring a 
concours quality car or just fixing your daily driver.

Good luck, and remember, YMMV,
