164 S front seats (tan)

I am in the midst of refueling a ‘91 164 S that I acquired. Interior is tan (regular Sport interior, non-optional Recaro).
The front seats are shot.

Looking for a set of front seats in tan for an S model only (would consider the optional Recaro seats)

*May also consider front & rear seats in black

Tri-state area preferred so I can pick up (shipping will be way too expensive)

Unfortunately Steve is correct, those are L seats. But thanks for the offer. I have an entire black L interior in decent shape from my parts car, but I really want to stick with the original S seats for the S I am returning.

Anyone know a good upholstery “restorer”, someone who fills cracks and redyes in the tri-state/NYC area?

You're going to be very hard pressed to find tan seats in acceptable condition. The tan seats just didn't wear well.

Yes, you’re absolutely right. And even if there were a good set out there, chances are they’re still mounted in the original car which would also be in matching excellent condition.

I’m looking into having them professionally restored, rather than reupholstered. Not only for the cost, but I don’t think I’ll be able to find the correct heavy grain leather Alfa originally used, especially in the original tan color. I also don’t want to swap to a black interior because the red on tan is too beautiful to change.
