ML430 OEM Towball

Hi All,
Newbie, and pleased to be part of such a well-informed network. Just bought a year-2000 ML430 which has come with the MB-fitted 'family and towing' pack. Tow-plate and electrics all there, but the detachable swan-neck towball is missing. Quick scan through the archives finds owners with similar problems - the phrase 'hens teeth' and 'rare as' spring to mind?

Anyone got any good leads to find a replacement - either original, pattern etc? The part numbers on the tow plate show: ORIS A50-x Type D137 00-0913. Many thanks!
