Upholstery FAQs - Material Sample Colors

US bound Mercedes Benz W126 sedans were upholstered in either genuine leather or MB Tex vinyl, most factory colors are available. Non US models (Euro. or Grey Market cars) also had the option of fabric interiors of which we have a limited selection.

Our seat kits are delivered pre-sewn with all attachments, installation by a professional installer is recommended for best results. Amateur restorers should always consider replacing the seat pads as aged pads may require additional hand formed padding. Only seat pads in the original firm rubberized horsehair are available. No foam.

All our kits are made to order in the original style that came with the car. Before installation, the old upholstery must be removed.

Our front seat kits include 2x backrest, 2x cushion, 2x headrest and 2xback panel covers so as to cover both seats. The covers for the optional armrest are sold separately. We do recommend ordering all the covers at the same time for a perfect color match. From 1979 to 1988, the leather seats had 7 embossed vertical pleats. They were replaced with seats that use wide perforated horizontal pleats in 1989.

All seat kits are available in Leather or MB-Tex.

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.

Only the early (1979-1988) W126 sedan seat pads for leather front seats are available.
Rear seat pads are no longer available.
