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

Upholstery FAQs - Material Sample Colors

Seat upholstery for 220S/SE Coupes and Cabriolets were all originally leather and thus we only offer it in leather. They're only offered as whole sets since it is impossible to match the color of faded leather. Most factory colors are available but please note that we use the original color and it may not look the same as your current color especially if your seat covers are very old.

These seat kits includes all the backrest, cushion and back panel covers needed. The original seat pads underneath the covers are no longer available. Since these kits are made using the original dimensions and seat pads are also susceptible to wear, tear and shrinkage, you will most likely need a professional installer to rebuild the pads so that the upholstery will fit as per original.

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

FRONT SEAT

Early models (220S) had 6 blind-stitched pleats and plain inserts for each seat. The insert did not go all the way up or forward thus ending up w/ a "pillow" in both the backrest and cushion. Early in 1958, a new kind of seat was introduced with 5 double-stitiched pleats (insert was also plain) with perforations in the middle of the double-stitch. Also the insert now went all the way up on the backrest and all the way forward in the cushion. The "horseshoe" seat was still also available but this time with double-stitch and perforations. Late in 1958, along with the introduction of the 220SE, they added basketweave embossings on the insert on both seat styles.

There are rare models that had front bench seats instead of two individual seats. It came in both blind-stich pleats with plain inserts or double-stitch pleats and embossed inserts.

Front Seat Kits
1956-1960 220S/SE Coupes & Cabriolets

For front seats answer these 3 questions:

1.) Do you have pillows on top/front (Seat #1)
     or does the insert go all the way (Seat #2)
     or do you have a bench seat (Seat # 3)?
2.) Does your pleats use blind or double stitch?
3.) Does your insert have embossings or not?

REAR SEAT

The rear seats, like the front seats, first came with blind-stitch pleats w/ plain inserts, then double-sitch pleats w/ plain inserts and finally, double-stitch pleats w/ embossed inserts. The only difference in design is that the Coupes had 14 pleats while the Cabriolets only had 12 pleats. Both body types though came with an exact same folding rear seat option.

The earliest 220S Cabriolet models (1956) had a 3-piece backrest, wherein the "wings" above the side armrest are separate from the main backrest.

CARPET SETS & RUBBER MATS
----------------------------------------------------------------

Carpet FAQs - Material Sample Colors

220S/SE Coupes & Cabriolets originally used Abetone wool for their carpeted areas. Abetone is no longer available so we offer it either in Wilton Wool or Feintuft Velour. Both are bound in leather to match the seat upholstery. The front floors originally used rubber mats instead of carpet so you can order either the rubber mats or a carpet replacement to get full carpeting. Also, cars with folding rear seats has a separate carpet supplement for those extra surfaces.

Special Note: It is important to notify us if your 220S/SE has the semi-automatic (hydrax) transmission. It changes both the interior carpet and trunk carpet in certain areas.
