Mint condition W123 300CD seats, driver and passenger

I bought them to put into my 300DT sedan, but they are too low and don't really work in the sedan. Also my interior color is a little bit different.

No rips or dents, both seats have perfect springs.

Color is creme, color code 155

Shipping might be expensive so I prefer a local deal within Ontario, Canada if possible. Asking 500 or best offer

Color code is 155, it's called creme

Here's how it compares to my current seats

Why didn't they work in your sedan is what I'm wondering? Are the seats in a w123 coupe really different from a w123 sedan?

Is it just a matter of switching out the seat rails on the bottom? Can the seats just be shimmed up?

What specifically was the issue?


Also, a suggestion for shipping is using Greyhound bus lines. They often have extra stow away space and sell that to people wanting ship bulky or large items. If you un bolt the back rest from the but rest and shrink rap them together then I have been quoted $50 per seat before. Although, I do not know how they deal with customs since most likely you would be shipping to a different country.

You actually don't need to swap the seat rails, they bolted in directly.

My reasons were that the back of the seat is much lower, creating a much more sloped feeling like in a dentist chair or something. Also the color was different than my interior which I didn't realize until I started to swap the seats.

Finally, the biggest issue is that the seatback does not fully lock unless you have a vacuum line attached to the seat. It's intended to lock the seat while the engine is on so it can't fold forward. Only the coupe has that

To be more specific on the difference in seats, the butt part of the coupe seats is full height at the front(just behind your knees) and then slopes down very deep to the rear to help with the reduced headroom in the coupe. Photos might not show it but it's a considerable difference.

Thumbs up Coupe Seat Differences

Thank you very much for this explanation ~ I thought it was just my old seats being worn out .

? Are the back rests different too ? my /84 has a tear in the cover and I recently found a good used original Palomino cover I'd like to install .

TIA,

Thumbs up

O.K., thanx .

I'm doing interior works om my 240D right now and bought an entire Palomino front seat just for the prefect springs I want to use, I was thinking of trying the back rest cover on my Coupe's battered seats .

I appreciate _all_ the helpful comments, tips, tricks and cautions I get here .
