1967 250SL Data Plate Question

Please see picture/data plate below, trying to figure out, please help if you can.

This is what I have so far...

Light Ivory with a Havana Brown top, Europa Radio and Pwr Antenna

What I can't read is where it was delivered? Germany? Saarbruecken, Trier?

Also can't figure out the original color of the interior. Bronze perhaps? MB Tex or leather? Soft top color? Carpet color?

Any help appreciated.

can you type out the numbers? it's hard to read from the photo, but what do your eyes say it is in real life?

If you go to sl-113.org look in the technical manual under data cards and color codes there is an excellent explaination line by line with pictures and codes.
Also if you go to a dealer with proof of ownership they can get a copy of the data card for your vehicle from the Classic Center which will give you even more information.
