What is this part - W108 AC intake grill?

I was picking parts at the junkyard and found something that I have not seen before. The car was a 1966 250 SE sedan with aircondition. US spec. In the front passenger side footwell - on the right kickpanel, there is a squirrel cage fan. (Behind the side panel) So this fan would be to the right of your calfs if you were sitting in the car. The side foot area panel had what I interpret as an air intake grille over the panel and mating to the fan. I'm wondering if this is an air intake grille, and why I haven't ever seen one in another car. The dash of the car suggestions that it was factory AC. Any ideas?

On a related note, the injection pump in this car looks different from the pump in my 1967 250 SL. And it mounts differently. Maybe it is more like the pump in a 230 SL...?

Anyway, here's pics of the grille that I'm wondering about. No mb parts but it certainly seems to fit the spot...
