Hi! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the trunk of my 1978 450 SL open? I locked my purse, the keys and 200 worth of groceries (including ice cream) in the trunk. Ive called 10 locksmiths and no one can do it. Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, your chances of getting help here are slim - This is the W220 Forum, and very few of us will be at all familiar with your car. You might have more luck if you can find an R107 forum in which to ask your question.

Call 18004mercedes
It’s Mercedes assistance they can refer you to a capable locksmith who might be open today but chances are slim

Or It’s not going to help you today as it’s sunday , but on Monday call a Mercedes dealer with the vin number of your car- they may be able to cut a key using the vin number. You’ll need to bring them the title to the car and your id to prove you own the car

Benzworld has a R107 Forum. That was my very first Mercedes. Been about 14 of them since. (I need to make a list and verify that, LoL)
Yeah, the best thing you can do is get a dealership, show them your vehicle registration and prove you own the car, maybe they can make you a key, they may have to order it from Germany...
It is always good to have a spare key hidden around the house somewhere. But call the dealership first, ask them about the procerdure for getting a key made! Good luck.
