I would deeply appreciate it if someone could run this euro vin# for me. I am looking at a car that is about 80 miles from me and would like all the info I can get to make a good purchase decision. Car is described as a 1985 500SEL, but from the photos it could possible be a SE. Thanks in advance for your help. Mike Vin#WDB1260371A171419

Yes that one. That's what thru me off was only the window switches on the back doors. Also the headlights look like US but there is still the height adjuster next to the light switch on the dash? Federalization mods?

I think those are power seat adjusters for the rear not power window switches. Standard on certain or most sel models.
Regarding the headlights it probably got replaced when it was imported to the US. Most of them are required to be replaced to US specs headlights.

126...037 stands for 500SEL model; SE model vin code is 036. Car is definitely a 500SEL.

I think the headlights are 86-91 US versions, flat across the fog lamps. That's a window switch in the rear, no power seat or heat. I am certain it's an SEL, rear doors longer and quarter glass on rear door bigger. Good looking car.

Def an SEL. Has the body coloured strip on the rear quarter window divide. Yeah looks nice. Shame no rear seat options though.

So, how'scum I don't see the heat switch for the rear seat? :surrender:On my 1986 560SEL (US car), the window, heat and recline switches are together on the door panel on both the left and right sides.

Anyone have an idea on the code 473 - Eng. low compression / catalyst? Does this indicate that it has a detuned engine like a US import with the same HP as a US car or does it mean it doesn't have the 822 package with the 300hp engine?

Thanks Bondavi,

Think I will just wait for a nice 90 or 91 560 SEL. More power and the interiors are so much nicer. Find one without traction ARS (ASR).
