Who says it was Mercedes sold custom luggage? Porsche is in Stuttgart as well, or it could have been someone who made custom luggage for people and for any car specified. It names the Karl Baisch Co. hat made luggage for cars located on Mercedes Street (Strasse). Could be near the old MB headquarters (see wikipedia).

I thought it may have been something along those lines, but the seller seems to think that it was designed for a specific car, so there was no car that had a suitcase included with it in some kind of compartment or anything.

NZ Benz ,Kia-ora!,these guys know a lot about stereos in their Mercs ,and what sort of body kit they should fit but when it comes to the real deal they don't know too much.That is a Suitcase for a 3-0-0 Merc. Mercedestrasse is in Old Stuttgart and in the actual grounds of the old factory .Bad Kansttat is where the first Daimler cars were built. Fitted luggage is a Mercedes Option.
I tried to buy the case but my OZ email won't work. I have sent the page off to a Kiwi mate in Turkey who has a lot of mercs including a nice 3-0-0 he has just finished restoring.He may have better luck getting a bid on it.
Karl Baish luggage is very much sought after and $120 NZ is a great bargain!!
Heres a set in germany for a merc,possibly a 3-0-0 S...at 1500 Euro's it's around $3000 Australian.
