Default 1980-85 Series 300 Turbo Diesel Rear Seat Backs Fold Down??

Do the rear seat backs on the 300D 4 Dr sedan or 2Dr 300CDT fold down?

No. Its a metal firewall behind the seat and the fuel tank behind that.
The exception is the station wagon models (300TD), the fuel tank is moved to where the spare tire would be in the sedan models and the spare tire is to the left wheel well. That allows an unobstructed interior and all the seats can fold flat (even the front if you remove the middle row).

There is no such thing as a 300CDT, its a 300CD.
