any one seen a w108 with a factory front bench?

I've got a 67 250 se w108 with a factory front bench seat. after months of searching I can't even find a photo of one. My mechanic says " I've been working on these things since they were new and I've never seen one". so my question is how rare is that. Anyone seen one, got one? Thanks

Factory Front Bench

I've never seen one before, but would love to have one! The only MB bench I know of is on the M100.

I saw a 250S in a junkyard last week with a front bench seat.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Yes, a factory bench.

I was on one in a W110 200 in Jakarta way back in 1974.
