Model ID - Newby!!
I have worked on and restored several older (60s vintage) Mercedes. I have just acquired a 1980 380 SEL (VIN WDB 12603212004776). If I understand correctly, the first 6 numerals denote chassis ID. However, I cannot find anywhere of the 126.032 being sold in the US prior to 1984. How can I determine whether this is an import/grey market vehicle?
Second part of Question... I have access to a 1984 380 SEL (VIN WDBCA32A7EA060200). I assume that this is a chassis 126.033 but is there any way to tell from the VIN? I want to purchase this vehicle for parts.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
