I’m looking to replace the armrest out of my 1989 560 SEC which the leather is completely cracked. I found one for sale online but the seller doesn’t know the interior color code for sure. Mine is Mercedes-Benz 267, Which is described as “medium red” but looks more burgundy, (the first two pictures). The seller’s pictures look quite a bit lighter (3rd pic), but looks closer in the 4th pic. Every photo that I’ve seen online of 560SEC’s all of the red interiors look like mine. My question is was there a different red color offered on 560SEC’s?

Jay,

I am unsure the answer to your question, but as a reference, you might pop out one of the rear seat cushions from your SEC and see what the real color was before the leather became sun faded.
The rear section of the cushion tucked below the backrest will be the original color as new I should expect.
This is certainly true of my now 33-year-old SEC and was an eye-opener for me.

Might be easier to judge the parts you are looking at.
