As we learned recently ('250Sl sold on BAT for $225K') it's accessories like these that can catapult the value of your Pagoda into the stratosphere!  8)

Seriously, this seems like a steal considering how rare these are and the condition these are in.

What is the view of the group here regarding originality of this item? There are press photos from a 230 SL showing an earlier “triangular” design of the grey rubber pieces to be original (see eg https://www.classicdriver.com/de/article/classic-life/snapshot-1960er-mit-dem-mercedes-sl-auf-die-piste)

Were those rubber pieces changed during the lifetime of the pagoda to those shown in this advert? If so from what point in time onwards? Thanks.

I believe there was a change at some point in the rubber pieces, but don't know when it happened. I say that because over the years, I've seen an equal number of Pagoda ski racks with either type of rubber pieces. These ones are the later type which were also on the 107 racks. Each rubber piece holds a pair of skis vs the earlier ones that hold a single ski.
