"SA" 5-digit Option Codes - Help Needed
During the 1950s Mercedes-Benz used a series of 5-digit numeric codes to describe specific factory options that were to be added to a basic vehicle. Usually, but not always, these five numbers were preceded by the letters "SA" on the vehicle's Lieferschein (delivery note / build sheet).

I am attempting to compile a full list of these codes as used during the 1950s and so far have accounted for approximately 200 examples. Other codes used during the 1960s and up to and including the present day are relatively easy to find, but, unfortunately, are not what I'm seeking.

If anyone has a complete list of the 1950s codes from M-B or has access to a Lieferschein with legible SA codes, I would appreciate receipt of same as an addition to the ever growing data base. Feel free to post a response here or directly to [email protected]

Thank you, E.J. Boyd

Are these codes in the EPC at all?

Have you tried talking to Tom Hanson about this?

Not covered by EPC as these codes are much too old (1950s).

One of my first inquiries was to Tom Hanson who told me that he did not have access to such a list and does not remember ever having seen such, hence my attempt to compile a catalog from an examination of original Lieferschein.

Thanks in advance for any further help that may be provided.
