Trick Question?

Hello Eric.

My name is Colin, I'm new to the forum and new to Mercedes!

I just purchased a 1985 MB 260E. Weird eh?

Well here's a post I made in the W124 forum trying to understand what exact I just bought myself (pictures included on page 2, take a gander), and they seem to think it's a gray market car.
http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w124...w124-260e.html

So I humbly approach you with the VIN (seller just emailed it to me) to get a clearer understanding of my car. Thank you in advance!
Colin.

The VIN #: WDB1240231A001331

Cars:
1991 Volvo 740 Wagon – 2006-2007
1992 Mazda 323 – 2007-2009
1992 Honda Accord – 2009-Present
1985 Mercedes-Benz 260E – 2012-Present

First off, can you inform me briefly how to read the model year from your break down?

Here are those unknown codes (thanks for the link):
071= Cloth Black
428= Manual 5-speed transmission
451= tachometer
466= central locking system
532= automatic antenna

I'm curious to know more about this 040 'C 220 Canada Special Edition,' do you have any insight?

By the way, I know you've heard this a million times, but Thank You so much! You're a star!

Peace,
Colin.

The delivery/production date is not given and I checked with EPC as well, no date given. Special edition I cannot help with either, maybe ask the guys over on the 124 forum;

I've got a good thread going in the W124 forum, although it's now gone more from identification to whether I should go through with buying it. Someone there said that the W102.982 engine wasn't produced until 1990, so is it safe to say that this car is no older than a 1990?

Thanks Eric,
Colin.

Going by the 10th digit of the vin # it should be a 91 car.
