1977 240d - Interior color help! Need new driver seat..

Hey guys,

Trying to match my interior color with JJ Products - Mercedes Color Chart Page

I think it's antique bamboo?

BTW, if you happen to have a seat I can have, would love the help my driver side is totally shite... I'm going to swap the passenger for the time being, but need a whole new seat, springs are shot...

It looks like the driver side seat is missing the horsehair pad, or it's totally disintegrated... Have you considered replacing the pad and just putting some sheepskins over it?

One option you may have is to find a working cover at a junk yard and redying it. Look at World Upholstery.com for matching dyes - I've used them many times.

It looks like you can repair the drivers seat. You will need new pads and new covers but all are easily available. There might be some damage to the springs but that can also be repaired usually easily.

The seat is missing an arm rest. I'm not sure if they are available.
