That's because you haven't dealt with pre-1981 MBs. They all have numeric-only VINs.

If you had checked the VIN on your old 280SL, it would have looked quite similar.

Can't find it. Are you sure that is the correct VIN? It has 20 characters and my VIN only has 17. Please double check...

I ran the last 17 characters and still did not find anything...

It's the correct number yes. Might be because this vehicle is in the Japanese market, but I think it's originally a US spec model.......

VIN Info...

HI Flyboyike,

I purchased a 2003 SLK 320 this past Monday 2/12/07. I'm new to this site and to MB autos, so would you be so kind to decode my VIN?
WDBKK65F53F279528

I have done a www search attempting to decode my car with no luck.

I noticed your user name plus the picture of a CRJ....who do you fly for?

Thanks,

Contrail
