MB Kundendienst - Stationen, the booklet.
This is the very first I have found that is pre-1972 edition. For 13 euros, not expensive neither.

Caveat emptor.  Beautiful and costly as it is, I'd be skeptical of a dash that old given the well established aging behavior of the materials.  Time and oxygen are not friendly to the urethane foam under the skin.  Over time it dramatically loses pliability.  How'd you feel if it cracked or deformed during installation?  :-[  Needs an on-site inspection before buying IMO.  Unless, of course, it has been stored in nitrogen in a cryogenic chamber.

Yup even though I have not bought from these yokels, I have only heard negative feedback, and their prices are simply astounding, and not in a good way...

There was a ebay seller selo114 or something like that in Turkey I got my remanufactured dash from. I think they may have changed names. It's a very nice and fresh plastic and foam. I dont see any dash listings anymore. They had an issue of not being able to accept paypal.
