Looking for Vintage Benz - Questions

Hi, I have a friend who is looking for some vintage Benz cars with extension and wanted me to find them for him, but I'm not sure where to ask. Do you guys have some ideas on who/where I should ask to acquire more info on these cars?

Here's the 2 cars he wants, and some description for them:

The smallest of the (new) Trasco range was this 1000SEL 12, a 12" stretch which was stretched behind the rear door and thus fitted with a re-modelled rear door. Note that the car with the raisable suspension is also a 12" but with a different door configuration.

This is the Trasco 1000SEL 15, with 15" extra length that has been added between the front and rear doors. The vinyl roof and vinyl finish between the doors with the Trasco logo is typical of this company.

Ask in the W126 forum on BenzWorld.

The above MB's are based on a 560SEL which is a W126 chassis.
