What is the VIN? You can find the VIN from the car or from your registration documents.

The VIN won't identify AMG tuning that far back, since it is "pre-merger." It will only identify the car as it left the factory.

Geez, how many times is this going to be asked? . . . . It's not an AMG, it's either a Koenig kit or clone.

Previous owner was told that this car was a joint effort between Mercedes and AMG and displayed at the 1983 either Tokyo or Hong Kong motor show as their center piece.Could this be true?Any thoughts guys?
Cheers,
Gerry(the fro)

Please use the "Search This Forum" option and put in the word Koenig

Right, I thought he was after more basic things too, he mentioned models/options.
