Guys, many thanks!
Actual mileage on the car is about 117K, seen the history it's acceptable and trustworthy.

Hello all,

Recently I bought a 450SL, '80.
The car has had several owners and was imported from Las Vegas to Holland were I bought it.
The VIN is: WDB10704412063652

I founfd a parking ticket wich was set on the name of Joe Damore. I found an e-mail adress but did not have a reaction yet.

The car was damaged at the front right side en de frontwing and the hood are replaced with gray ones.

Also their was damage at the middle section; it showed up when I took the covers from the back-right interior.

The car was orinigally blue with leather interior; now it's white with fake leather.
Also the Cruise control has been cut of.

I love it allready but am very curious on the history.

Any info would be highly appreciated!

Regards,

Japiooo
I would recommend using a service like vinsmart for vin checks however; sometimes if the car is before 1991 the title information and history won't be available.

I realize it's an old thread, but I tried looking for history on my 1979 450SL. 14 digit VIN, so usually doesn't decode. I tried adding WDB to the front, carfax did not recognize. I suppose I'm out of luck?

You won't get anything for vehicles from before 1981. Only option is to go to the local MB dealer and see if they have anything. Andy

Did you check under your car jack. Sometimes her is your build she’d.
