Badges On My Car
« on: July 27, 2013, 12:12:03 AM »
I am disassembling my 220 B Cab and looked closer at two badges that are on the car.  Should I remove these badges or keep them on the car?  I have attached pictures of them.  Thanks for your help.

The first one in my opinion is optional. The second if removed should at some time make its way back onto the car,

Just to be clear .... the Karosserie (German for "body") Sindelfingen is the original badge from the factory.  And as Jan pointed out the screws are correct also (don't loose them).  The badge signifies that the body was produced at the Daimler Benz factory in the town of Sindelfingen.

Jan thanks for the information on the Autohaus Konig .... it would be similar to our automobile dealer badges here in the US I assume.

The first badge "Garmish-Partenkirchen", is where the first owner of my car was from.  He was a physician in that area, but I do not know his name.

Where is that badge located?  I can't quite make it out from the close-up.

The badge is located on the door pillar in front of the passenger door.
