If this is a no-go, I understand.

Vin 107 044 12 051716

I know it is only 14 characters, but I am looking at a picture of the data plate of the car.

Thanks! Jeff

If the Owners manual sleeve still is in the glove box check for a metal plate it got car info stamped on it too. Sometimes it is still in its original place sometimes between pages of the manual,s it kinda looks like this one from a Chevy

Of Course a lot of info is stamped right on the metal plate by the radiator.

or send an Email to these guys maybe the former owner signed up

Thanks. I did get a reply from Classic Cars....

Dear Jeff

Thank you for your request for a vehicle data card for a Classic Mercedes-Benz car.

Please see below for the guidelines pertaining to the provision of data cards:

Data cards (vehicle build sheets) for Classic MB cars are provided solely to the legal owner or authorized representative of the vehicle for which the card is being requested.

Requests for data cards must include a proof-of-ownership for the vehicle in the form of a copy of the currently valid title (or a copy of a currently valid vehicle registration for States where titles do not apply), as well as a copy of the vehicle owner’s driver’s license.

Please note: Mercedes-Benz Classic USA will only honor data card requests from customers residing in North America (USA/Canada). For customers/vehicles located outside of North America, please see your local Mercedes-Benz dealer to place an order for a data card directly from the Mercedes-Benz Archives in Stuttgart, Germany.

For each data card retrieved, there is a non-refundable fee of $150.00 to defray costs associated with maintaining the data card archive and processing of requests.

Please send requests for data cards to [email protected]

We will contact you upon receiving your request, arrange for payment and send you the data card via email.

Thank you.
Mercedes-Benz Classic
Irvine, CA

Kind regards, / Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Disappointed they are in the US as I wrote my email in German...... :(

It is my brother's car, son I forwarded the email to him. He is rather frugal, so I don't expect him to get the info. He plans to pass the car to one of his daughters, so I encouraged to spend the money as information is always valuable (especially on old cars). ;)

Ouch. Expensive.

Similar price to them using the diagnostic scanner.
