w114 question

I am tring to replace the trunk seal on my 1971 250c. Can anyone tell me if the sedan and coupe use the same seal? I have purchased the one for the sedan and it dosen't seem to fit correctly.

I have both a '73 sedan and '74 coupe. I have not measured them, but I believe the trunk lid and seals are the same.

1973 280 W114 (Driver - 140,000 miles)
1974 280C W114 (Now running - driven off and on this summer)
1968 200D (Engine rebuild planned)
1964 200 (gasser parts car) & 1966 200D (complete car - Got to run. Now to see if clutch can be repaired.)
1980 300D W123 (Parts car - engine runs, but trashed)
1981 240D W123 4 speed ( In sad shape when bought - many parts from '80 300D has back on the road. Needs work, but shows promise.)
1988 300TE W124 (Does not run. 180,000)

Coupes and sedans definitely use different trunk seals. We have the correct seal for a 250C in stock for $49.
