I think Lotusbits might have had them remade? I've also seen them come up on fleabay from time to time. There are two version with different dates as well I think.

There's at least two variants.
Miles Wilkens has them available, I think in pretty much any date. He's also planning remanufacture of the head lamp pods. Just waiting for him to advise when.

The one in the picture is new to me. I know of the other variant.

Note that that is the rear end of my car as advertised . The Badge is missing !

SJs have a number of different versions of the W/C badge, but different from the image - all that shape have dates. Would it be for the first W/C - so from 1964/5

What's the badge on the other side?

Did they have an "Automatic" badge?
Would it be something a PO had made? Original lost?

Given that Mercedes have now won 8 championships on the trot, we could really do with some badges like that!

Oh well, we'll just have to make do with this, a road car with an F1 engine in it:
