1976 W115 240D head unit

Is there a way to tell from the data card which one of these radios came with my car originally? All I know is that it only has one original center dash speaker and no fader knob. Thanks - Mike

Yes, it's possible.

But could you attach a photo of the data-card, please? Or write all S.A. codes from the data-card?

Codes

There's two radio codes? That's weird. So it could have had either the base radio or the casette Mexico edition then? I want to say it's the former since it was a more basic setup (no fader, no original power antenna, 1 mono dash speaker, etc).


PS - code 636 blows. :-)

No, there isn't, you car have had 1 radio - Becker Europa, AM/FM, mono (code 515, base (cheaper) radio):


And if I decoded code 819 correctly (I'm not sure), your car have had separate cassette tape player also:

Casette

You just blew my mind. I had no idea that they offered a separate casette player. Looks like they also had a mono version as well for the mono head unit that was more for books on tape or recorded lectures. Now I will be scouring the car tomorrow to see if there's any evidence of the tape player being mounted in the glove box or under the dash at some point.
