Frank Mallory says: they are russet color tex leather, with brass fittings. Originally there were 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 special W113-size suitcases. Somehow it appears that I lost the special 113 size (same length & width as medium, but a little thinner to fit under the sidewall of the spare tire). There is also a russet leather strap with brass buckle, to hold them in place.

Hans Strom says: the factory supplied luggage kits for the whole car production range. There is some info and illustrations on URL: see the last part "Boot". Frank mentions the leather strap to hold the cases in the boot. If you look inside your W 113 trunk, you will find "double-hook" fittings, one on the inside of the back stem, the other at the front of the trunk compartment. These are anchoring points for the straps. The German Pagoda club sells a nice re-make of these leather straps.
