Neither of mine, 68 and 70, has tilt wheel so it's a tight fit. I'm 6'2" with 36" inseam.

My 66 actually has more room.

Seriously...I've driven both a '76 and a '79 this year, and didn't notice any difference in legroom. Except that it's way better than my '89.

My guess would be they're the same. Except for the '68, which had a smaller interior.

An 81-82 WITH a Power Driver's Seat AND Glass T-Tops will give you more head room than any odf the previous C3s.
