Would suspect that the car is DB 904. But the metal data plate is the place to check.

Sooo, I'm guessing I want the Becka Europa Stereo.  I want to make sure I get the same radio as came with the original car.

I assume the way it works is your insurer foots the bill then argues it out with the U-Haul insurer?

The ebay item referenced is the left side.  Note that the right side is also available from this seller.  (A mere $1,800 OBO for the pair.)

Well it is a "feeler" gauge after all. Some of us have more feelings than others.  ;)

Interesting. All the tech data I've known here in Europe shows .08 and .18mm and that's what I've been using for 41 years.
Perhaps there's a difference in spec according to country?
I doubt that Daimler-Benz used different values depending on the car's destination/location.
The German "Tabellenbuch" from 1968 shows the same 0.20mm value.
The English version is most likely a direkt translation from that one.

My preference for entries into our technical manual is to use the manufacturer's data when they are available.
That doesn't mean, of course, you should change your procedures that you used successfully for 40+ years.  ;D
As Wallace pointed out only a few would be able to "feel" the difference.
