W111 grill (S-Class 220 SEb or 330 SE)

hi folks...
hoping someone with knowledge of the W111 can help me out...
I have what I think is a W111 grill, badly needing replacement chrome vertical (1) and horizontal (10) strips.
The grill is in outstanding shape, chrome surround is bright, scratch & dent free, and shiny !! MB badge and star are excellent.
But, the vertical & horizontal slats that sit on top of the grill honeycomb itself, are badly in need of replacement.

First of all, can someone identify the right car model this grill belongs to (220SEb or 330 SE), and model year (1960's ??), and secondly, where can I obtain new or good condition used chrome strips to replace these old dented rusted ones ????

Please e-mail me at: Saprissa@aol.com

here are the dimensions of the grill, and some pics below...
(23 inches H x 24~25 inches W)

That looks to be a SEb coupe / convertible grill. The vertical and horizontal strips can be bought from the main dealer for a few pounds (well, in the UK at least). They changed the grill in 1967 to a flater style.

The grille appears to be from a 220 SEb. You can see numerous offerings for the strips on Ebay for a reasonable price as compared to the dealer.
