Identifying and valuing parts

Hello all,

We have inherited some old MBs from my father-in-law, and I have found a handful of parts I am trying to identify and/or find a sales value for and hoped you folks could help a noob. Here they are (sorry for the crappy phone pics):

We have two of these wheels. I am not sure if they are MB wheels or not. They are primed red and seem to be in good shape. Any idea of what chassis (if any) these would have gone with and what they might be worth?

More wheels, these with tires. Again, might not be MBs. Can anyone identify?

A pair of seats in really good shape with the rails and everything. For a 450SL/R107 (?). Any idea of value?

NOS fender for a W113 230SL. Perfect condition, just rusty. Value?

Rear fascia panel for a W113 230SL (is that the right name for it?). NOS with MB tags on it. Again, perfect but dusty.

Mystery gas tank. Anyone know if this is MB? Could be from a 190SL if so, as that was the car that was stored near this in the building.

Also, I have wheel hub covers. 3 with body matched color (brown), and 5 that are NOS chrome still wrapped in paper. Any idea of values here?

I have two rear bumpers for a W113 230SL (the two horizontal bits, not the upright parts). What is market value in good condition?

I have a full grille assembly for a W113 230SL. These seem to go $1k-$2k?

I have the chrome steering wheel ring for a 190SL. Any idea for value there?

Also have one side view mirror in good shape for a 190SL (bullet shaped, came from a 1956). Need an idea of value there.

Sorry if it is obnoxious to ask for values here, but I can't identify some of these parts and others I can't find on eBay. If you are on the lookout for any of these, don't hesitate to make a reasonable offer on any of them. Also, I would have posted these in the individual forums, but since they span a few chassis models, it seemed more concise here.

Thanks in advance.

Contact classicparts@mbusa for an idea. The 190SL parts could be worth quite a bit.

Sorry, but contact them for what? Identifying cost of parts, or do they actually buy NOS and used parts for restorations?

I'd buy a lot of those parts if you'd be prepared to ship them to the UK.

I believe the wheels in the first picture are from an MGB or Midget.
