Pair of Recaro Ideal C Seats

SOLD!!

This is a pair of black fabric Recaro Ideal C Seats. They came out of my 1984 944, and were in the car since new, so they date back to the early 1980s. The car has not been driven in the last 10 years, and has just been sitting covered in my garage. These are rare seats, and you won't find any in this condition come along very often. Excellent seats, need some minor restoration, or would be excellent re-covered.

They are heated, power recline, and power lumbar. The bolsters are all manually adjustable. They are missing a few caps and trim pieces but are intact and come with the mounting brackets out of my 944.

The passenger seat has some wear on 1 side bolster, and there is a small bit of wear on the seat bottom. The driver seat is in great condition, very minimal wear. The foam on both seats is in excellent condition.

These would be excellent for an early '80s restoration, I know these were optional seats on some MB AMGs of the era, and are rare seats.

Asking $1,200 + shipping from 24019 (Roanoke, VA)

Thanks,
TJ

Roanoke, VA (I just updated the post above) I just had a set of seats shipped from CA to VA a while back for $100, not sure what the actual cost was but that is what I paid from a ebay seller. I would be willing to help the buyer arrange shipping, UPS, Fed-Ex, etc.

Your seats are cool and rare, but I just went thru buying a set like yours and spent a ton of money getting them recovered. 48hp had some recovered and the cost was $800and he paid for all the materials. So the going rate for making those seats usable is approx. $1200+. A pair sold recently in GA for about $600. So for $1200 with out the proper MB seat rails + at least $1000 to recover might be a bit steep? Just my opinion.

1989 560 SEC Supercharged - 317+ rwhp - H&R lowered - OZ Nova's - upgraded brakes - AMG Tri-Y's - Bergwerks FGS - a true Euro Rod

1995 E420
1985 500SEC
1999 C43
1987 euro 560SEL 300hp 822 engine option
1976 450SL w/AMG kit - penta's etc
