4 penta's for 150 euri?

They're Italian made Eta Beta's, cheap 7Jx15H2 Penta knock-offs. Can be had for half that in usable condition. They have a German ABE, so at least should be safe to use, and are approved for all W116s.

King / Eta / Beta was back in the 80s in Germany the cheapest possibility to buy Mercedes lookalike wheels. I wouldn't buy them, even for the half of the price

Car phone for 10 bucks.  Beats the hell out of paying 1500 euros at the frenchies.-if you're looking for one. It isn't a pre-1980 Becker, but an early 80's model AEG. Find a good electrician and have him turn it into a functional GSM 4 phone internally by using the internals of one of those big-button retro-phones for grandpa's.

yeah, easy access and cheap shipping if you're in the US. Not a pretty or cheap one, though. I would be patient and see how to pick one up in Germany for 30 euros plus 16 in shipping, fully insured.

This is for those that have a 1950-1961 mercedes. A genuine MB car paper wallet. First one I ever saw. Not cheap, but the only way to get a thing like this is through costly private auction houses. Really something, I think.

So both the bottom mounted and top mounted speakers in the pre- and neo- dashes are round?

Attention: ebay forwards to another ebay auction, click the link at the top to get to the first
Frenzel auction ("Originalartikel ansehen")

Now they sell it for 5800€

Very cheap  ;D (in German: Schnäppchen!) and a very detailed description.

Merry christmas to everybody!
