Help with 1966 Mercedes Benz 200 Please

We have a 1966 Benz 200. We are looking for a variety of parts in order to fix it up. I have Googled everything and am coming up with more questions than answers.

We need all window and door moulding, front and rear bumpers, hood emblem, wiper motor and the drivers side door panel with the arm rest pad.

Our car also doesn't have air conditioning so we are probably going to get the kit from vintageair.com. But we would also like to get power window kits and have no idea where to get them from.

I live in New Mexico about 30 minutes from Colorado and a couple hours from Albuquerque.

We are getting the car painted within a week or two and want to get everything ordered so we can start putting it together shortly after.

Wish I could help, but no such luck. The stuff you want (moldings and bumpers alone) will likely cost you far more than the car is worth, if you're able to find it, which will be challenging. Good luck!

Actually we did find the moldings for $35 a piece and we are taking the bumpers to Albuquerque to get re-chromed for $150. The car is actually in really good shape and runs good, we are just fixing up the minor problems such as the dried out moldings. We are also having custom interior done after paint.

Rechroming is always option 1, when possible. I hope your moldings are bright and unpitted.
