Does the glove box open without a key?

I do not have a key to it, if so, how do I get in there?

You can contact the MB Classic Center, provide proof of ownership (a fax is fine), they can provide you with the "DataCard" for the car, and the datacard will have the keycode. Then you order the key from Key Men - Classic Keys for Classic Cars
or from MB or from your choice of vender.

Thanks for the feedback about the keys.

A new question.

I saw a W108 with the shifter on the floor but mine is on the wheel, what gives?

Common option - my 108 has the same floor shifter.

So what you are saying is that for the same year the automatic shifter ha an option to be on the floor or on the steering wheel?

Or is it just an option on the W108 range?

A complete dirt cheap 6.9 in Maryland for a donor. Requires a cross country trip though. Probably could not be further away?

Cool! I'm curious what route you go. At some point, if I get back to the US any time soon, I'll be swapping a Chevy crate engine with a supercharger into my 109.

Also, look up a guy on the forum, an Aussie named Gwunta. He put a turbo Chevy engine into his 108. He might be able to offer some help too.
