VIN decoder

I'm just a little freaked. I just plugged in the VIN for my 240D, and it came up as a 230. Is the decoder less accurate for the older models w/o 17 number VINs? I typed WDB before my VIN.

The decoder is not accurate at all for pre-1981 vehicles.

I keep getting a 404 error off the VIN decoder sites I've found on the forum. Any help on a car I'm looking at would be appreciated.

1976 450SL
VIN on door sill is 10704412030563
I don't know if it's a WDD or WDB or what preface...

Thanks!

Order number 705
Engine number: 117985 12 003092

This was a 7+ years old thread, you could have picked up a more recent thread on this topic or simply start a new one.

Help yourself and find your data card decoded here:

Welcome to the forum!
I tried that site. It just gave me a blank result after inputting the VIN number. I tried it both with and without the WDB preface. That's never happened to me before.

Sorry about putting it on an old thread, but I usually don't like creating new threads on forums if there's a thread about my issue already posted. But I will start new threads in the future.

Do you mean the site works for you when you try other VIN numbers?

You have to be persistent (it is sometimes very slow) and pop-up windows have to be allowed (the data card comes on a pop-up window).

I don't have any special permissions to their site and this is what I get:
