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 😀
350SE (silver) from 1979 (sun roof, air condition, central locking, Becker Mexico, ....)

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.
