Hello, all

I'm fairly new to the brand, somewhat familiar, but this is my first Benz. I just bought a 1977 450SL that has been sitting for quite some time. Strangely it has a decklid with a 3rd brakelight in the middle and 560SL badge on it. It is in very good shape but has not run since 2002. It has 102k on the Odometer. It is an Orangy Red and has Beige interior. Hardtop was stuck so I had to reach under the boot and release it. The softop is cloth and appears to never have seen the weather. Paint is very dull but appears to be nice.I would like to see if it will crank, but I don't have a trunk key so am unable to get in to change the battery. Also the fuel pump has the hoses disconnected. I have absolutely no history on this car so I am starting on this blind.This is my wife's dream car so I bought it for her. I would like to start with trying to decode the VIN #. Does anyone have any info to get me started?
