Try Alpha Accident Repairs, or Autosalone out your side of town.  I haven't tried them myself but they have done a few early Mercs in recent times.

I've forgotten the factory code for the color but Mercedes call it "English Red"
Go figure ..
It was available in some models early to mid 1970's.

And heres the same car, same parking spot, similar weather with the new window tint added.
If you look closely the rear parcel shelf is now Black carpet for no glare.
