1974 240d

I am buying a '74 240d and the VIN I am given is what I have been trying to verify.I have checked several VIN decoders and nothing but frustration,though my Russian has improved-LOL!
My VIN is 11511712005496 so I add WDB at the beginning and still nothing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Vintage/classic cars are not listed on the present format of EPC but you could try this sub forum for help;

Thanks. I've been in that thread/forum many times. It's mainly for parts for classics and an occasional car for sale. I'll continue to search elsewhere.

Electronic data card is the information on your car held on computer. But in this case it was pre 80 and all information was stored the old way on files. And the Germans being sticklers for detail will still have the old paper files.

You can run your own VIN.
Checking VIN for Mercedes-Benz WDBFA68F6YF192292 | CARInfo
If it times out or asks you to wait just wait that minute and enter you VIN.
It is very accurate and I am sure you will be pleased.
