Possibly because you seem to be too lazy to read previous messages and the instructions how you can find the info yourself from the Russian sites.

Welcome to the forum anyway but try to use the search function more and specifically read the whole thread before repeating the same question that has been posted and answered earlier in the very same thread.

WDB tells the manufacturer is Daimler Benz in Germany
123 tells it is chassis type W123
150 tells it is model 300CE made for the US market
1 tells it is left hand driven
2 tells it is automatic transmission
The rest (6 digits) is chassis serial number

This chassis type was only produced up to 1985, so the VIN can never be interpreted as a 2001 model. The insurance company should know better.

Present this information to the insurance company together with the data card (which shows that the number is known by the manufacturer).

.... or find another insurance company. They seem not to want you anyway.

In any case, the problem may be that they cannot find the vehicle in their database. This could be because perhaps it was never registered in US (a bit far out, but it could be the explanation for some reason).

btw:

This number system was only used until 1983.

And the 300CE (code 150) was only produced between 1978 and 1981.

I don't know the number produced, but I would guess that the serial number 006743 is in the very early part.

The VIN decoder here on Benzworld also gets mistaken by the number and returns 2003 as production year.
