BUILT TO LAST

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The MB-Tex up­hol­stery is al­most in­de­struc­tible, but the op­tional leather needs check­ing for cracks and tears that can be costly to re­pair. Velour wears badly with age and is al­most im­pos­si­ble to re­place. Elec­tri­cal prob­lems are rare un­less the wiring has been com­pro­mised in some way. In any case, over­all con­di­tion is the most im­por­tant thing here as thor­ough re­fur­bish­ment can cost thou­sands. Check for damp car­pets, and make sure that a coupé’s rear win­dow is wa­ter­tight as wa­ter ingress quickly leads to cor­ro­sion in the boot.

MB-Tex is the hard­est­wear­ing seat trim.
