The newer VINs are a bit different in encoded information compared to the older ones, but here are the basics (keep in mind some of this info is slanted towards N. American models):



WDBNG75J4YA012345
WDB2201751A012345 (Corresponding chassis code)

W = Country of Origin (often considerd final assy. points, and also often regardless of where the car is actually made, for instance, a large number of BMW 3-Series are manufactured in South Africa, yet they still start with 'W', the W463 G-Class is/was made in Graz, Austria, yet still comes to these shores as a 'W' vehicle)
--> W - Germany, 1=USA, 2=Canada, 3=Mexico, J=Japan, K=Korea, V=France, S=England

DB = Manufacturer (in this case, Daimler-Benz)

N = Body Designation (A=163/ML B=164/ML and GL, C=251/R [when preceeded by 4JG in N.A.), A=199/SLR [when preceeded by WDD], D=219/CLS, F=129/SL, G=140/S, H=202/C, J=210/E, K=170/SLK, L=208/CLK, N=220/S, P=215/CL S=230/SL, T=209/CLK, U=211/E, W=171/SLK, Y=463/G [when preceeded by WDC in N.A.]

G = Body Style: F=Sedan, G=Sedan Long WB, H=Wagon, J=Coupe, K=Cabriolet/Roadset, M=AMG (no longer used), B=Long Body, R=Dunno, but applies to the W463 (WDCYR...), on older models, this, the 5th digit, indicated whether the vehicle was Gas (A), Diesel (B), or 4matic Gasoline(D)

75 = Model Designation, in this case, it's a 500. The S430 would be 70, 76 for the S600 etc.

J = Restraint System: C - 3-pt belts with ETR on front seats, 3-pt belts at rear outside seats, lap-belt in rear center position. D - same as C, plus driver's side airbag, E - same as D, plus passenger side airbag, F - 3-pt belts with ETR on front seats, 3-pt belt at rear position, driver and passenger side airbag, side impact airbag in front;
G - Same as F, instead, lap belt in rear center position
H - Same as F, plus curtain air bag left and right
J - Same as H, plus rear outboard side impact airbags plus ETR at rear outer seating positions.

4 = Check Digit

Y = Model Year - ...T=1996, V=1997, W=1998, X=1999, Y=2000, 1=2001, 2=2002 etc....

A = Manufact. Plant: A-E = Sindelfingen, F-H= Bremen, J=Rastatt, X=Graz, A=Vance(Gasp), T=Karmann M=Woking, England (SLR)

012345 = Sequential Serial Number

You sure that's the VIN? It's not coming up.

Sure is, I'd post a photo but don't have one on me right now.

12305322028884 absolutely.

I've read else where in the forum that some countries simply don't show up on the various sites that generate the report. Mine is Australian delivered, built in June 1983, according to the VIN plate...

Now that I have an excuse to put another photo on the forum - it looks like this!

Hello from Berlin!

I am not sure, but if I understand it right the VIN "tells" the story about the car. And what about old cars leaving the USA back to Germany?

"Carfax" told me this is not a VIN: 10704412023613, but it is the only number I have....

Can you check it out?

that is the VIN (when preceeded by "WDB" I couldn't get a data card through the Russian EPC, but I know there's another site many use (the link is on this board somewhere). Regardless, it didn't come up in our EPC, but the car is in Netstar's VMI database. I cannot pipe the information into a file, or copy and past it all though ... anything in particular you're looking for?

There was a recall campaign completed on the car, the start date for that recall was 2/25/1977 and the recall number 1977020001. There was also a service campaign completed (1985120001) , the start date for that campaign was 12/06/1985. The car was sold by dealer 14333, a code no longer used (it's possible the dealer either went bust or changed their number), but currently most of the 14xxx dealers are Florida dealers. The vehicle left the factory on 11/21/1974, and was delivered on 1/31/1975. Hope this helps.

Great!
We think the car had some accidents, but it is an old and rusty car, we want to "rebuild" it. Thank you! You answered all we wanted to know about.

That doesn't look like a Mercedes VIN.
