    400E Pick-N-Pull Sherwood Oregon

    Hey folks,

    Just an FYI a 400E showed up on my Row52 radar in Sherwood Oregon this morning. It's a bit far for me and I already have a 400E sitting in my driveway with everything I might want for my 500E, so I'm just passing along the info for anyone else that might benefit!

    Cheers,
    Paul

    There’s a fair bit of stuff on they car that could be useful. We have a thread or two listing what would be good to get in terms of V-8 specific parts.

    Vin doesn't appear to be correct. If someone's going out to pick some parts- I have a small wishlist.

    VIN appears to be valid, but not in the EPC. However, if you use the FIN instead of VIN, you get a datacard:

    WDB1240341B823092

    This is rather interesting, as EPC datacard errors are awfully rare.

    Dave,

    FIN ?

    First time I have heard of FIN ilo VIN. I guess it’s been around a while but I have never heard of it and I purchased my first Benz (a 1957 190SL) in 1978. Which I tore the drive train completely apart and re-built. I was buying parts all the time.

    Please enlighten me.

    lol
    Terry

    Re: 400E Pick-N-Pull Sherwood Oregon

    Terry, the FIN is basically the Euro=style VIN... WDB followed by full chassis number (124034 in this case), then a single digit (forget what this indicates, oops), and finally the 7-digit chassis number which is a letter followed by 6 numerals (B823092).

    North American VIN's are different format and include additional data encoded, including if the vehicle is gas or diesel powered, and the model year.

    Look up your VIN at DataMB and you'll see the top 2 record are FIN and VIN. This particular 400E only has a FIN, and is missing the VIN. Super rare to see that.
