Euro/Early 107 Interior Options?

As I hunt down interior bits for my Euro '72 350SL I find myself in a bit of a quandry over what was available from the factory. Mine is a stick-shift/ manual windows car, so center console bits are hard to come by to begin with.

My car came to me with after-market (possible homemade) wood shift console & heater switch consoles (in very bad shape). In my search for replacement parts I have come across several varieties and am curious as to what was actually available originally.

Did most of the early and/or euro one come with the back plastic consoles (like the euro w123s I've owned) or did they come with colored vinyl to match the interior (pictured below in a '72 350SL currently on eBay)? What was actually available from the factory?
