It isn't actually a VIN number but a chassis number. Mercedes didn't have actual VIN numbers until around 1980 (I think)
114.060 is your chassis and model
1=Left hand drive (US Version)
017822 is the 17,822th car of that model built
426=power steering / automatic transmission, floorshift
515=Radio type Becker (not sure which) probably Europa
586=A/C and electric windows
593=heat-insulating glass with windshield band filter and rear window pane single-sheet safety glass
514H is original paint color (Carnelian red) and H is the paint manufacturer
the rest is gobbldeegook (actually I don't know)
the plate is supposed to be painted the same color as the car.
