Vintage roof mounted ski box, fty Mercedes
I have a vintage factory Mercedes roof mounted fiberglass ski box. It has provisions for standard and downhill skis. It is an enclosed clam-shell arrangement with an open tail so the ends of the skis hang out. The lid is on two small hydraulic cylinders and has a lock w/ Mercedes key. Painted in factory Ascot Gray. From the mid-80's and in excellent shape. I would keep it provided I still had room and had the time to ski... but I don't so it's for sale. It looks great on top of a w124/6.
Edit: This comes with the 2 original roof bars. The bars sit on top of the two roof trim strips and they clamp onto the intersection of the roof where it meets the top of the door jam. The box is adjustable on the bars fore and aft and left to right side.
