I have no connection to this item other than seeing it in Hemmings and thought it might be of interest here.  www.hemmings.com/parts/item/Transmission--Drivetrain/Transmissions--Transaxles/New-ZF-5-Speed-Transmission-for-230SL-250SL-280SL/15808.html

Unbelievable what they are absolutely unafraid to ask for such a gear box.
 ??? :-[

Those were half the price ex-factory (i.e. Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen) when they were new a few years back. ???

Have a look at the price Authentic Classics is asking. George is great to deal with but yikes!

They were free for all to order back then; I remember posting a "last call" here on the Forum, in 2011.
I attach the sales flyer from ZF below.
