seat compatibility for W115 (1976 300D)
i also posted this in the W123 board. sorry for the double post, just trying to catch someone's eye. apologies out of the way, now we can start.
the seats in my 1976 300D (W115) are coming apart from the inside. i believe this is a common issue for these seatsâ€”the horse hair (or whatever it is) is disintegrating and piling up in the form of disgusting dust and chips all over the carpet.
i figure the least costly thing to do is just replace the entire seat rather than re-upholster my existing ones. problem is, whatever seats fit my car exactly by year, will be just as old and likely to disintegrate as the ones i already have. so i'm wondering what other mercedes seats might be compatible. could someone here clue me in as to possibly other mercedeses from the 80s-90s that i can hunt down for their seats? (ie, cars that i'm likely to find at pick-your-part or other wreckage joints.)
i'm mainly looking for the 2 fronts, manual (if there were electric options i don't have them), just looking for something that will line up seat-to-track with the chassis of my car. authenticity of vintage/model is not an issue.
please tell me either by model/year or by chassis number.
