no crazy about the rims; another transplant air filter on the diesel. 
The front bumper is characteristic of cars we find in Argentina.   It can't be a coincidence, it almost appears as if some model which had this front bumper (and sometimes rear) was so dominant in that region (meaning either from the Argentina MB plant) as to have so many spare parts.   It makes no sense that all 51-55 MB models shipped to Argentina would have this different bumper option....OR, (in an effort to overthink this), do you think its possible that the MB Argentina plant actually made some S-D and S-V models for local sales (in addition to its primary option function of trucks for overseas sales)?
