is my car a 1976 or a 1978?

I have this 450 SEL 6.9 European model. VIN # WDB11603612002996. It has been with us since 1991, and always thought it was a 1978 model but now I'm not sure.

There should me a build date in one of the stickers, the drivers door B pillar for instance.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Do you know about The International M-100 Group which is a great resource for M100 owners?

The European version might not have those stickers on the B pillar. Contact the Classic Centre.
