Post Production run on W133

Greetings! I have been doing research on the pagoda, as a couple of my friends have these models and just recently got a 71 280SL. One of my friends has a "Euro" model 71 280SL. I found a good site that has lots of information, but found something curious. This is the link of the production run on w113:

Pagoda SL Group Technical Manual :: DataCard / USModelYear

I was looking at the 1971 production run and it says the model was discontinued in March 1971. My troubling thing is that the vehicle information tag located on the driver door has a production date of 4/71. Does anyone really know when the pagoda finally seized production? I can be confident enough that the vehicle is actually a "Euro" model as it is missing sidemarker lights and there is no vehicle emissions control sticker on it. Anyone out there with a pagoda having an April production date? Cheers!!!

Hi Ozzy,
280 SL was introduced in December 1967 and continued in production through 23 February 1971, there is no production date for April as it closed in February sorry dear.
