This seller is known for being troublesome... but then again, these key replacement sets don't come up for sale often, so it may be worth chancing it. Not at that price though :)
I'd say a third to half of that is a great to good deal.

Actually, this seller has proven his worth to me, when the going got tough. I wouldn't worry about it.

wow.. a NOS York! First time I have ever seen one.
Not that cheap at 270 OBO, but German-SPOB sells broken ones for 550 euro!

He's down to $850.

The radio is worth half of that.  (can anyone tell what model radio that is?)

Rumb, why in the  world would you or anyone else pay over $400 for a Becker Mexico?  For that kind of money, I'd expect it to be a Grand Prix narrow face from the mid/late 1960's.  I'm sure many advertise them for high dollar amounts, but they never sell.

Well my car was originally outfitted with a grand prix if anyone has one available.

Wasn't the only difference in Stereo FM (both having stereo cassette, the one with big STEREO sign having mono FM)?

Stereo FM is soon to be part of the history.

I don't think a Grand Prix Cassette came available until after the W116 ceased production.  (pinstripe models)  Rumb, there are several Grand Prix models for sale on ebay, Chrome London's website, and I'd imagine that Becker Auto Sound here in the U.S. has some on the shelf ready to go, but their prices are too high, and you'll have to send it back 4-5 times after you buy it to get it to work right.  Such is life, I suppose.
