'64 220S Brake Drum

I have a '64 220S and some of the fins are chipped off the rear drums.

I've been looking on the internet for a while now and can't seem to find a place to get new brake drums, I can find the calipers, rotors, pads, and shoes, but not the drums, if their called that...

I had been looking for ball joints (just to see what they cost) and had no luck with those, but come to find they are actually King Pins, which are readily available.

So I'm wondering if the drums are called something else or if anyone know where to get them.

Brake drums are available but are quite expensive. Brake drums for the 230SL are the same. Check with the Mercedes Classic Center. Search for the name 'Tom Hanson'. He works there.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

They probably are the cast iron rear drums?
Broken fins are not a worry. Thin or over sized, yes.
