What year is my 250C from?

I've always thought it was a 1970 250C, but for some reason now I'm having doubts. My VIN is 11402312000284 if anyone can figure it out based on the manufacture number. Are there any vehicle characteristics that could help identify the year?

There should be a metal tag stuck to the drivers' door frame with date of manufacture.

Remember: It's not just a car. It's an Adventure.

Quite likely MY 1969.

They sold this model from October 1968 to May 1972 and they have made 8,824 in total. The low number of your car (284) indicates 1968 or 1969.

You can contact the MB Classic Centre for more info.
