Ron,
Thanks. I rang the number on the website you posted and spoke to a very nice lady who said Tony still had the car and has shifted it in out of the weather to a shed. She said he had rejoined the local M-B Club. I have given her my phone number and the website address and told her of Paul's register. She will pass on my message and thought he would be interested.

I hope so, anyway, we will see.

Hi Paul, just curious, the left key, without the plastic, did it come standard with the car? I only have the 'plastic' ones (the other two).

Hi Ruud,

as far as I know the oldest versions could have three different keys, because they could lock some parts away for the garage, so not everybody could unlock all the locks as for example the thrunk and the dashboardcase. Possible also an extra key for a lockable petrolcap.

HI all,

Another 600 VIN for you.

My other car has been removed from it's home among the spiders and rats in a back yard, and I can now read the number: 100 012 22 000846. At least, I am fairly sure it is 846: it is very hard to tell.

The attached photos will show why...

If you are interested in 6.3 identification, I can identify another 6 for you if you like, as I have dismantled that many... And the lady from whom I bought the two 600's remembered she has one under a tree in her yard....it is worse than the two 600s!

That rear radio control is a unique thing isn't it? .

They do seem to be a bit unusual, but both of these cars are fitted with one. Both are cosmetically excellent, too. Just need to find out if they still work!

It looks, that you are reading a wrong VIN-number
846 is a LHDcar with italian specifications and colour should be antracite with cognac leather ....

So please do an other reading for me .....
possible 346 ??
When I see it right on the pictures, that second car has the oldstyle Nackenrollen and squaremodell outermirrors. So in that case the Vin should be between 001028 and 001133
Thanks for your help ..

Is there not a Vinplate in front of the radiator kind like this ? :

Looking at the overall condition I would say the plate has probably corroded away. A better bet would be to read the engine number and go from there. It's unlikely in Australia for a 600 to have been retro fitted with another engine in the old days. Pretty amazing that it ever got into that condition considering it's value when new.

The rear seat radio remote isn't really that rare. I would guestimate the 1/3 to 1/2 of the 600s I've seen have it.

Hi Ron,

there is no connection between the Vin and the Motornumber.
When you don't have the Datacard, you will never be able to find then the Vin.

For example Vin 10001212002612 has motornumber 10098212000045 ......
Without Datacard there is NO connection.

But, what about the official carpapers / Licensenumberpapers ????
In europe the Vin is as far as I know always mentioned in these License carpapers.

for the 6.3 serie:
Vin ........Motorno
LHD 1289 ==> 001343
LHD 1290 ==> unknown
LHD 1293 ==> unknown
LHD 1298 ==> 001342
LHD 1308 ==> 001357
LHD 1321 ==> 001362
RHD 1323 ==> unknown
RHD 1331 ==> 001340
LHD 1335 ==> 001373 .......

I can't see any remaining registration stickers on either car windscreen or side window in the pictures I have. That sticker has the VIN. Chris said the books were in one of the cars and they may include an old registration certificate (which has the VIN) or a record of the VIN in the service manual. If the plate is missing from the radiator support panel (to the right of centre in the direction of travel) or so corroded as to be indecipherable, then it should be readable stamped into the right front chassis rail behind the aircon compressor and in front of the bracket for the windscreen washer bottle.









And while I'm on my pedestal, that VIN for 181 that Chris posted on the previous page should be 100.012 22 000181 rather than 100.014
for the sake of accuracy. These plates can be exceedingly difficult to read when they have been out in the weather for 20 years.

Chris e.mailed to say he can't make out the numbers on the chassis rail with certainty because of corrosion, having already looked there, but he'll try again when the engine is out.

On a more successful note, Tony Basile rang back this morning. Chassis number of his car is 100.012 22 001911.
Motor number is 100.980 22 001993. I can't immediately find my 1980's pictures of the car in wedding service, so Ron's of it on its knees will have to do for the time being.

He also said he had 4 roundies, 180,190,220,220S and a container of new roundie parts to go with them for $15000 if anyone is interested. I suspect you can see a couple of the mentioned cars behind the 600 in Ron's picture.
