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

This includes "VIN decoder". I don't know how well i works on the US number system, but my W140 with European number system comes out with production year 1976 (but is 1991). And the one in question (with old US number system) also comes out with wrong data.

Mercedes Benz 1981

Well i tried vin websites and shows as 2001 and like i said i tried some insurance companies and shows also as 1981. Ive heard that 1 after 50 means its year 2001 but inot sure if its true because the 10th number means year and if it was 1981 it somepose to be B and not 1

That coding is after 1983 (US only). Before that the numbering system was more like the international system in which the year cannot be read directly but only from knowing which serial numbers (last 6 digits) were procuced in which years.

See Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN codes)/Mercedes-Benz/VIN Codes - Wikibooks, open books for an open world

W123 300CD (123.150) was only produced from 1978 to 1981 according to Listing of Mercedes Benz chassis and model number and Mercedes-Benz W123 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It was produced in 7.502 units according to Mercedes-Benz 123 series ? Production figures | Daimler Global Media Site > Heritage > Mercedes-Benz Cars > Mercedes-Benz P. Cars > E-Class.

So, with a serial number of 006743 it is most probably produced in mid 1981 by simple mathematic deduction. No matter what insurance companies say.

.... if it is really a W123 300CD and not some unidentified vehicle with fake (but valid) VIN.

This can be verified simply by looking at pictures of W123 (see attached picture) to see if it is that type in general, and looking at the doors to see if is really a Coupé model (only front doors), and looking at the engine to see if it is a diesel. Furthermore the engine serial number can be checked to see if it matches the chassis number. The original engine serial number should be 617912 12 114885 and transmission serial number 02 116799. If all matches, there is no doubt.

Hi all,

Just got my "1999" e55 and would appreciate if anyone can give me the specifications of my vehicle: WDB2100741A578627. I am now praying that is it a 99 model.. bec of the price I paid. Car is imported, I'm based in the Philippines. From what I'm seeing in different forums, the 10th digit is the year model and "1" is for a 2001 model My E55 is not the milennium model yet.

Thanks much.
