VIN Decoder

Hello all.
I am a new member here and an owner of 1977 450-SL.
I have a question regarding the VIN Decoding.
The VIN no. of my car is 14 digits: 10704412040894
All the decoder applications is asking for 17 digits.
Can you help me ?
Thank you in advance.

I believe you should add WDB (World Daimler Benz) in front of the rest of your numbers.

It's not a VIN, it's a chassis number. The VIN, which came out in 1982 or 83, has a specific format which includes country or origin, manufacturer, check digit and some other codes including the serial number. Call the classic center and they can send you a copy of the data card.

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