Original 2kg Halon European Fire Extinguisher

I've got an excellent condition original fire extinguisher and bracket up for sale. I picked up another FE thats a different style and more appropriate for my 560. This one's out of a 1980 W123 that was in excellent shape but unfortunately was destroyed in a car accident. It was a very low mileage example and interior was perfect. I saved the FE and took it for my car which I did not have the time to install.

Its still full, holds a perfect charge and still has its original unmolested 1980 label! Perfect for a W123, W126 or W116.... gives that extra period-period correct option

SOLD! Thank you for those who were interestes!

Ifs real Halon, I would send this to local hazardous material collecting agency & buy myself a ABC FE.

Halon really rocks the ozone.
Halon are illegal now except on planes.
Do our children some good, please don't use it on car fire.

Oh, agreed..it does f'k the atmosphere...Given the # of halon's that are likely left out there I'd say the threat is Small..
And think of all the Nasty chemicals that would be released if the car burned to the ground...taking the two side by side a blast of Halon is likely worth it..

Hopefully you would not have to use a fire extinguisher. This items is geared towards enthusiasts who'd want an original genuine Mercedes option in their car. Just as I have R12 refirdgerant in my AC system, I have a Halon fire extinguisher and don't believe I'm affecting the environment by simply having it in my car. If your car were to burn in flames, I'd bet it would cause more harm to the environment than say a 2kg bottle of Halon.
