Anyone got an idea what was originally fitted to this model? Blaupunkt Radio Cassette?

Any help appreciated.

Quite literally nothing (not even an aerial)unless some very expensive factory fit options were ordered. Most would have been dealer fit systems - usually a Blaupunkt radio cassette.

I bought a new 260E back in 1989/90 and the radio was an extra. When doing the deal with MB Bristol, we agreed they would fit a radio for me and electric aerial. The radio fitted was a Blaupunkt but the exact model escapes me.

Thanks guys, I did think as much - on the German forum they are pretty sure it would have been a Becker R/C for their market.

Of the older Benzes I've had of this period the UK fitted radios all seem to be Blaupunkts.

Verona, Coburg, Kingston, Lubeck - all are that era.

fromematt the radio type is a Blaupunkt Cassablanca SQR 49 or Coburg SQR 49 The wiring diagram is sitting in the wallet also .Thats 100 % positive it was the right fit for your car from new ...I have a Savilla fitted but a cd player.and not original .
