W114 seats

Does anyone in the house have information on interchange of M-B seats?
Sun infrared exposure has destroyed the outer shoulders of both my front seats' leather... 1974 coupe 280C (114.073) with 77,000 mi and purchased from the second (1978-2009) owner (with the promise not to "hot-rod" it).
The factory booklet "parts manual" in the glovebox gives no part numbers; tried figuring things from the on-line Niemoeller (Deutsch) catalog w/ no success.
What seats do fit my coupe?
Are there any other non-folding (sedan)front seats from that 1970-1980 era that will bolt in OR have the same exact cover(s)...
W115 (230/240D), W114 (280), W116 (450se/450sel)? or even the W107series (450sl/450slc)??
Is there a "what-fits-what" chart available?
My thanks,

Is it discoloration? Or actual destruction of the material?

You can indeed swap out seats - those from the 108's should fit. You might also but new skins from an aftermarket place. I did that with a 114 and a 108 and for just the skins for the seat back, you won't pay too awfully much. Replacing them is an hour's worth of a job per seat, if that, to include taking them out of the car for ease.

If the issue is just fading, I'd recommend getting the dye plus prep fluids. That's a 20 inute job and is very inexpensive.

Good luck!
