1972 MB 350SL VIN CHECK?????


I've tried several times to run the VIN on a 1972 SL350 that i'm looking at with NO luck whatever. - ALL the websites keep telling me that: "NO SUCH VIN EXISTS" or "your request must have exactly 17 characters".
YES, i checked the VIN twice to assure that the VIN was written down correctly.)

Can anyone help with VIN number: 10704412003866.

thanks, tex

That's a chassis number not a VIN. VIN's didn't come out until the early 80's.


Currently 1965 220Sb, 2002 FORD Crown Vic Police Interceptor

Had 1965 220SEb, 1967 230S, 280SE 4.5, 300SE (W126), 420SEL


Not part of the in-crowd since 1952.

body type 107 = R107
engine type 044 = 450 8 cylinder
steering left hand side = 1
transmission automatic = 2
(to name the first 8 digits)
rest of the numbers is a production number, yours is3866 of that year

you can submit that to Mercedes Classic and they can give you the build data for options ect.
