new guy, 1981 500sel, vin issues

Hey, just got my first mercedes, pick up a 1981 500sel, grey market..runs fixed a couple things this morning. I got it off craigslist for $650.00 no body damage, interior is ok, looks like there is just a ac belt missing for the ac. I am going to have trouble with the title bought it 3rd party but nothing that can't be worked out. Only problem I am coming across is manuals and that my vin comes up as 1978 on your search, 1990 on that russian site, title says 1981, and the mdv here in Arizona says its a 2001? any ideas on this and the manuals, its euro german built.
VIN wdb12603712008508
