If you are looking for key blanks, the original was a Neiman profile "W".  This may be very hard to find.  You can use a Taylor key blank "62VM" or a Dominion or Ilco key blank "61N".  You will also need to know the key code number which is stamped on the original key or listed on the original MB build sheet.  It should contain 4 numbers followed by a W.  Here  are is a link to the key code cutting.  Yours will use a "W" code.  Hardest part may be finding a locksmith.  I used one in Germany.
