    The Monroneys will cause no end of 'shroom/cream/parchment/saffron/chamPIGnon/truffle discussions since the sheet includes interior color names.

    Not to mention Gray vs Grey!

    Thanks, Robert! Do you know if he has both the Mercedes-Benz and Daimler-Benz versions? Last I remember, the 1992-1995 version (with MERCEDES-BENZ text at the top) were not available from MBCC, only eBay:

    Re: NOW AVAILABLE: Reproduction factory data cards

    My research this morning (posted in this thread) shows that MB used the same format of dealer window sticker through model year 1995, so it is a single form that covers all of the years of the E500E, as well as the late W/C126. This means that after I do a full scan of my window sticker, I can spend some time cleaning it up and creating the first draft "mockup" of it.

    What I need from folks here, is an actual photograph of a 1992/1993/1994 dealer window sticker, if you possess such. I am sure that a number of you have them; I would appreciate a cell phone photo (close up) of your complete sticker so I can match the text appropriately to my scan. I also need to carefully match and balance the color scheme as part of the initial "clean-up"/mock-up process. If you can take a photo of your window sticker for me, please e-mail your photo to me at gerry@vanzandt.us

    Then I can begin to offer this as a service.

    Some further research also shows that MBUSA in some cases can provide copies of original window stickers, and in other cases cannot -- or will not. It is inconsistent. However, it appears that MBUSA DOES have copies in their archives of each car's dealer window sticker. Approximately 20 years ago, I was able to contact MBUSA to obtain a photocopy of the original window sticker for my 1969 300SEL 6.3.

    Another avenue could be to go to the originating stealership where one's car was sold, if known. It is likely that they also have copies/records of window stickers for particular sold cars.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    I'll have to check Dave. I did order from Tom a 1995 windshield sticker but your question now has me wondering if it is the correct one. I'll find out.

    Called my contact in Montvale this morning. They’re checking to see if the Monroney stickers are still available. I’ll report back what they find out.

    They still have people in Montvale? I thought MB moved their HQ to the Atlanta area in the past year or so....

    Atlanta. They just finished moving the last vestiges of Montvale to Atlanta last month, I believe. The owner’s support/MercedesMe folks were the last to go. I have Montvale on the brain when I think of MBUSA....

    That's quite OK. GSXR reflexively has said "MBNA" and has for as long as I've known him. Even though the company re-name happened around 1999. (I think it goes along with his green-screen EPC & Windows 95/NT favoritism, Luddism that is particularly ironic given his distaste for CIS-E and the W123 chassis ).

    Are you taking any new orders for the reproduction factory data cards at this time?
    If yes, interested in purchasing. Please use the VIN from the sticker emailed to you.

    Re: NOW AVAILABLE: Reproduction factory data cards

    A few new data card requests have rolled in, so I'll do a very limited production run, to be performed on WEDNESDAY APRIL 25.

    If you want to be in this production run, please contact me ASAP (by midnight Tuesday, April 24) for scheduling into the queue.

    All newly requested data cards will be shipped on THURSDAY, APRIL 26.
