HELP Identifying sunvisor model and year

I was given some pristine parchment/tan sunvisors, but other than knowing they are from a Mercedes, I have no idea what year or model.

Here are the clues: 1.) Lifting up the mirror cover, the roadside assistance number is 1-800-222-0100 and the picture of the Benz is a station wagon. 2.) This not a flat sunvisor, it has a curved edge to fit the contour of the roofline. 3.) No HomeLink or other transmitter 4.) These resemble the visors being sold on Ebay as model years 92 to 99 for the S320, 420, 500 and 350 or visors with the 126 series.

Any ideas??? Thanks Steve

I believe that the roadside assistance sticker was moved from the glovebox to the visor in the early '90s. The curve on the end makes me think 126?

Sunvisor Question

I am kind of lame when it comes to uploading pictures to websites. Anyone have a readers digest version how to use this site and upload pictures from my computer? I may not be able to figure this out. From my description, someone who might have a similar vehicle, should be able to recognize the station wagon logo on the roadside assist decal (drivers mirror) and give me a clue as to the year and maybe the model. Too bad BNZ didn't stick a part number under the mirror cover somewhere. Having a curved visor and the decal info should be a good tip. Thanks, Steve

You'll still only be NEAR the Ballpark.(Maybe) No Matter What.

'Hoping that Wagon Logo will get you even in the correct decade is just like

('See where that got C. Columbus...Thinking The Caribbean was The Indian.)

'Given Stuttgart's penchant for "Standardization",the same visor may be used
not only on different years but different models.

If you will Very,Very,Very CAREFULLY pry the Mirror Insert out (Brittle Plastic)
There will be Part(S) numbers stamped into the plastic inside.
(And a little circular date of manufacture code.)
