Decode 230 SL VIN

11304210003711 This is from a 1965 230 SL that I may purchase if the VIN decodes anything "interesting." I have several M-B models, but no convertibles, so I have no knowledge in this area. I am curious as to how late in production this particular car was completed. Thank you for any help/advice on the 230 SL.

RE: Decode 230 SL VIN

Hi,

113 = Baureihe = model in this case "pagoda SL"

042 = 230 SL

1 = Lefthanddrive

0 = manual transmission

003711 = serial number

Best regards

Hans

RE: Decode 230 SL VIN

#3711 indicates late March, 1964. 1965 was 9025- 14779. I suggest you join our international Pagoda club to learn more from over 800 owners of the W113 series, www.SL113.org. You can learn a great deal about the car before you purchase it.
