ITEM 0025: W108 Front Passenger Seat (Red MB-Tex). The seats were in the 280S, but the front seats and rear backrest were not bolted down; the 280SE had scraps of red carpet still on the floor under the sill covers, and had red B-pillar vinyl covers still attached, so my guess is that these seats are actually from the 280SE, which had no seats in it.
All seats "sit" very nicely, the spring frames are still in great condition. The driver's seat MB-Tex has a lot of blue discoloration, and an obvious patch of vinyl repairs on the bottom cushion, and poorly repaired piping near the door. None of the seats has open scuffing or tears on the MB-Tex. Each headrest is missing one of the two hard plastic grommets on the side. Front seat frames and tracks have very little rust except on the very bottoms of the rear feet. The wheat in the rear seat has not shredded one bit. None whatsoever. Not a single fiber or dust speck of the wheat has fallen off that I can see.
There isn't any smell to the seats at all.
Feel free to bid on the headrest, the knob, the knob+ chrome, the tracks, the vinyl covers, or anything else in combination.
Rear seat hold-down peg plates are not included with the rear seat bench. These (I have four) will be auctioned separately.
I am going to set a "Buy it now" price on all the seats together, of $600 cash. If the seats are bought as complete units, no matter whether all together or separately, they are *local pickup only*. The seats are in Renton, Washington, a suburb of Seattle.
Note: black plastic handle is missing from passenger seat height adjuster.
