W111 sedan parts

There are a number of bits I'm looking for as part of making our 230S into a more pristine car than it is, for example the dome light, rubber parts, door hinge pins and the like. These are not the usual wear items MB still makes, but they do deteriorate over time. If the car was a coupe, parts would be straight forward to come by, but it is a sedan, so it's a bit less of an enthusiast car and therefore not as well supported by the aftermarket. So, I'm asking for suggestions for places to try for any and everything for this car. The goal is to make it last another 45 years.

I just got parts off of a 1961 220 S at the salvage yard. It was in nice condition. If you have specific parts that you want me to go back for, I would consider it. I have lots of parts but they are on ebay and at ebay prices. I'll sell my ebay stuff at 15% under ebay price if you are interested. Ebay user srallen

If the car were a coupe, the parts would be insanely expensive.

They would indeed be insanely expensive, but there would be plenty of them. Having driven sedans and the occasional coupe, I can say I don't feel much difference from the driver's seat, so I'll stick to my sedan.

For now, I'm looking for a dome light and the front wing windows. All the rubber and felt around the wing windows and door windows is another part I'd like to find, but used might not be much better than what the car already has. I'm also looking for a straight back bumper. The original owner of the car sold it because he couldn't figure out how long it was, and kept backing into things. We are finally getting around to fixing it after all these years. We currently have a less than beautiful later black interior mirror, so I bookmarked the one you are selling.

You have an interesting collection of parts for sale, Scoot. How do you go about getting used Maserati parts to sell? I can't imaging parting out a Maserati, but then I'm not in the parts business.
