Car looks like a nice project. But I don't think the seats are original.. The covers certainly aren't. And I doubt the column shift fintails had bucket seats.

Not too clear in the pic, but it looks like a normal el cheapo rexine job to me. The OE MB Tex had a very visible basket weave as u mentioned. This one seems like normal rexine with a piping, that too, not in original pattern.

No Sir! My 1956 Ponton has Bucket seats, our 1963 200 petrol (W110) had Bucket Seats can you believe it our 200 (W115) had bench seats! My father says that in those days and I did some research myself, That Mercedes were Bucket seats as standard, Bench seats were always special order. In India people preferred Bench Seats because they could seat 1 more person in the front, six in all. Hence most Mercs in India were ordered as Bench seats. Mine is amongst the rare Bucket seat version (there could be more) amongst the Pontons. The build sheet for my car confirms It.

Back to the car on sale the seats are original the seat covers are not. Was it a right hand drive car I would have bought it. As I now plan to collect oil burner Mercedes. I am still tempted

Well the only Willys Overland I know of in Delhi is the one Photographed at last years Statesman Rally with some debate about the stated year of manufacture. Link to the Team Bhp page with the photos is below :

Take out a Zero and thats what its worth. Buy it at that price and later Add a Zero to it, Divide it by Half , Thats what anyone would need to restore it back to Originality.
