anywhere from '52 300 to 1990 560SEL,and a '93300TE nothing newer, too much trouble....
How much of this is actual fact, assumption or fiction ?It appears the "623"'s were a very limited production. Only 1100 or so were made. I imagine the low numbers produced were the result of Ma Benz using up the existing supply of M130 engines already on the shelf. I've never seen a '73 or later model using the M130 but then again, I've never seen a Narwhal and I know those exist.
I have never heard of a 114 623 in 40 years of collecting fixing and dealing with
If you would put the complete plate of/on the second photo, everything would probably be clear.I promised the owner I wouldn't put his whole serial number
From the position on the (option-) plate I am thinking that this is the order number of this car.
By an unbelievable coincidence it almost corresponds to the first 6 digits of the VIN.
It may be a factory internal designation (that I however have never seen or heard of before).
WHAT MATTERS are the stamp and the VIN plate in the 3rd photo match up.
The (painted) plate is an option plate and was only for factory purposes.
