Is this number stamped into the hardtop? If so it's the last four digits of the body # (not the VIN) which was stamped into the hood, hardtop, softtop and transmission support. So I don't think you can determine the exact year unless you know if it's from a 230,250 or 280SL. They are interchangeable and will fit any from 1963-1971.
