New to the Benz world - 73' 280 Sedan

I recently purchased my first MB - a 1973 280 Sedan. It has 58k original miles
and the body is in great condition. Its running good but will be fully diagnosed in the early fall. The interior is really clean but needs new seat pads / cushions all around. That leads me to my first question - does anyone know where to find the rear seat pads / cushions?!? World Upholstery still has the front seat bottom and back pads available but the rear seat pads are sold out. I checked GAHH and they don't have them as well. Anyone?

Also, I'm looking for a pair of rear headrests from a 75' - 79' 450 SEL with full hardware and mounting bars.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Your car is beautiful. I have non-running 1972 280se. It's a future restoration project. A good place to check for older Mercedes parts is Auto Parts at AutohausAZ - OEM Auto Parts - Discount Replacement Parts, Resources and Car Care Tips
I'm not sure about seat pads but they have tons of parts, filters, etc at reasonable prices. They have door seals and lots of other trim parts so they might carry what you are looking for. Good luck.
