SEAT UPHOLSTERY KITS
----------------------------------------------------------------

Upholstery FAQs - Material Sample Colors

Most W123 wagons were originally upholstered in either MB-Tex vinyl or German leather. We have most of the factory colors for both materials which we can use to manufacture the seat kits. Some European models used cloth/velour but we only have a limited selection of this material.

Our seat kits will be delivered to you pre-sewn and can be installed by an amateur restorer but they are still more appropriate in the hands of a professional installer. The reasons being, no instructions are included (since they are manufactured when ordered and not mass produced) and any installation of seat covers requires removal of the old seat covers. Also, most old seat pads will either require replacement or re-building/re-padding which also requires an installer.

If you want something unique, we also offer Sheepskin Seat Covers!

E-mail us or Call 1-800-222-9577 to order or for more info

FRONT SEAT

Our front seat kits include pre-sewn backrest, cushion, headrest and back panel covers for both seats. The covers for the optional armrest and are sold separately. We do recommend ordering all the covers at the same time for a perfect color match. Before 1983, W123 front seats that were originally covered in MB-Tex had 5 pleats while those in leather had 6 pleats. In 1983, all seats now had 6 pleats. All kits are available in both MB-Tex and Leather. MB-Tex kits are heat sealed while Leather kits will have double-stitching. Early models had 'Rossette' embossings while late ones had 'Pin-point'.

REAR SEAT

Rear seat kits would include the backrest, cushion and center armrest cover. It does not include any headrest covers. Like the front seats, those seats that orignally had MB-Tex had a different number of pleats as those originally in Leather.

SEAT PADS

Seat Pads are what gives the seats their shape. For the seat cover to look and feel exactly like the original, the seat pad must also be the same as the original. Since seat pads are also susceptible to wear, tear and shrinkage, they may require replacement or at least be re-built by an installer.

W123 seat pads are different depending on what the original upholstery was. It means that if you originally had MB-Tex vinyl, your seat pad would be different from someone who originally had Leather. Also, some of the late Turbo Diesels had slightly different seat pads.

CARPET SETS
----------------------------------------------------------------

Carpet FAQs - Material Sample Colors

The W123 wagon's carpeted area is the same for all models except for one area, the spare tire. There are two types of spare tire covers: the round type and the flat, longer type. Wagon carpet is available only in Feintuft Velour since loop-type carpets are hard to fiti n the rear area. The carpet set includes both the front and rear passenger area as well as the rear compartment area. Carpet under padding are not included. The original padding is no longer available. A more modern jute padding can be used to replace it and can be bought separately.
