Vintage Bumper Identification Requested

Hello All,

After sorting through my small stash of W108 parts, came across a vintage bumper part that I do not recognize. The bumper part appears vintage, very good chrome and is half part of either a front or rear bumper. Can someone with more expertise than me, shed some light on what this is? I do know it is Mercedes.

Thanks,

Philip

I'm guessing W114' front bumper, left half.

I'll add a $5 Starbucks Card to the prize for the eventual winner, because why not?

The w108 rear bumper pieces are massive compared to this unique bumper piece in question. Also noticed this bumper part doesn't have the mount holes for the smaller attachment bumper like the W108's.

Thanks,

Thank You!! After looking up the W114 found that is exactly where this bumper part came from. It is the driver side front bumper half just as you said. :-)

The mystery is solved.
