Yes indeed that is the chin spoiler. Rare as hen's teeth. This one looks a bit rough but might clean up nice.

Good luck! Was hoping it would be you!

In the meantime, this tacho... Guess the clock was turned back?

Turned back, and damaged in the process too. The third zero from left has a ding. In some countries that's actually illegal unless done and certified by a specialist shop.

Not a 6.9 tacho.
Red line should be 5000 for Euro and 5300 for Australian.

Hard lines Robert, I think once you do one day land this elusive chin spoiler we need to celebrate ;D  I think this part must have gotten smashed up quite a bit due to it's placement on the car that is why all stock has been depleted.  Still think a mould could be made but will be pricey and demand may be limited.

this must be a pretty rare car 280sel column shift ?

Looks like a rare combination for sure. And ABS, ACC and (beat up) velour seats! 506K kms, not too shabby!
