    Impossible to tell without the VIN. I think those seats are out of a W126.

    At that age I don,t think the chassis number would tell you anything. AMG was a separate company at the time.

    No they're recaros (classics maybe) and suit the car to a tee. KLP92 built a car similar to this one using recaro seats and then sold the car.

    I know - they look good. But they aren't original fitment.

    And i thought Recaros like these were an option allbeit a "VERY" rare option, possibly an AMG option rather than a factory one.

    What is it he's claiming is AMG about it though? It has some fancy seats and an AMG badge but I can't see anything else :dk:

    I thought AMG was a separate tuning company back in '84 anyways, so no AMG rules apply do they?

    Yes, I know that but I'd expect to see a body kit and/or a tweaked engine or suspension or something but he doen't say and nothing is obvious to me.
