WTB: mercedes phone system (late 80's/early 90's)

Looking to add a Mercedes phone system (bonus points if its got a nice Mercedes star on it ). I prefer one thats period-correct for the late 1980's and early 90's. Functionality not important... as long as its in good shape.

Can be out of any Mercedes from that era... W124, W201, W126, R107, etc.

1980 Mercedes 280TE AMG
1989 Mercedes 560SEC
1990 Mercedes 560SEL with AMG parts modifications
1991 Mercedes 190E AMG with Brabus 4-cyl M102 2.6

So you only want the cradle and phone receiver, not any of the electronics behind the scene, right? Because it's an analog phone that isn't going to function anymore with today's cell system...

Currently: 1967 250 SL, 1963 220Sb, 1965 300SE Lang, 1971 280SE parts car, 1972 Alfa GTV, 1965 Alfa Duetto, 1993 BMW R100R
Past: 1971 250 C, 1985 300 TD, 1967 250 S, 1968 280 S,1981 300 D, 1982 280CE, 3 Facel Vegas, Borgward Isabella Coupe, Alfa 2600 Sprint, Volvo P1900 (yes), numerous less interesting Volvos, ...

Well yea, this is more of a decorative item than anything else. The electronic wiring would be nice to have but I'm not looking for a phone thats still functioning, just that it cosmetically looks good.

Wow, I wonder if I still have the one that I pulled out of my SEC when I first bought it back in the late 90's. Not sure I even know where it is anymore...

I was just joking with some friends about this. I want to add one too! 8) I wish I could hack the phone and put digital electronics in it so it worked. But that sounds like a big project for a novelty that will probably wear out. heh
