Hi,

this console is not an OEM part. If it were original, it would be more finely finished and lined with carpet

I kind of like it, though. It could almost serve as a middle seat and a storage box. But, that would be an awkward seating arrangement on a W116, even if it was a column shift version.

Found a guy that has 2 70's lamp boxes for sale, 50 euros each. It's the hard-to-get 000 580. Anyone interested?

That's one gone. Anyone else for the last one? They may not come along again for years..

BTW.. german ebay has started up again with a vengeance. Guess the lockdown there is over? Whatever the case, it's suddenly gotten very active since last night.
Good time to go hunting for those parts you might need. I also found prices to be lower than before, but whether that will hold?

Becker rear speaker for oldtimers. NOS in the box. Not cheap, but no takers and I think he's eager to sell, and make a deal.

Wheel hubs.
I know these aren't rare, but these look pretty mint, and not expensive.

This is something unique. The seller will drop the price quite a bit if you ask him.
I did my research on this. Brief, it's from a village in the deep south of Germany where handicraft has been the thing for ages. Wood, ceramics, the lot. It has the markers in the back to prove origin.  "Volkskunst Rottal-Inn KBB"
This was a project, commissioned by a Mercedes dealership back in 1985. Thus, not an official MB HQ commission, but surely something quite unique for a garage or man-cave.

If it's from 1986, why does it have what appears to be a post-facelift W124 or, more likely, a W202 under the 1986 marking?
Neither car was public until 1993 :)

I call fake on this piece.
1993 "Pearl Blue" W124 280TE
1988 "Arctic White" W124 200T
1979 "Icon Gold" W116 450SE (history, resto)
