Rear seat backrest cushion

Will a 114 gas sedan rear seat backrest cushion fit my 114 coupe? I found a very decent one today but am reluctant to purchase without someone verifying it will fit.

I put one from a sedan into my '72 coupe. I don't remember if I used the coupe frame or the sedan's. I pulled the covers from both and used the best of the spring sets but I don't recall which one I used. I remember having to do a little extra "tucking" around the top.

The bottom frame will not swap but the cover will fit and you just squeeze the excess into the side area.

The rear back-rest frame from the sedan is too big to fit the coupe--it's possible the cover could be used with the coupe frame and springs

Okay, so that means I used the coupe frame. I couldn't remember. After restoring 15 or 20 of the 114's they all blur together.
