Hi, I was sent this number "1268201111" from under the hood of a 1991 Mercedes 500SL by a person and I was wondering if this is a chassis number or can be used to identify the car? I looked around and one of the guides I found through a search showed me a picture of a sedan and I was wondering if there's a difference between the European version and the US version as I think this is a European. I'm trying to pin down a way to restore a car and get parts for it, but I can't.. I'll be getting the car in a week and then I'd be trying to dig out the chassis number to start my mission. :-) -Mao

Sounds as if you have already bought this car? You may have started this process at the wrong end. First, what is the intent on restoring a vehicle? Is this just a fun project, or are you trying to make some money? There is no money in restoration unless you are very good or very lucky. You need to tackle something that you are familiar with, or that parts and information are more affordable. You know what you are familiar with. Information on cars, and the one you may have bought, it available on the internet using Google. Also, some imported cars from the 1980's and early 1990's were Grey Market. Cars that were imported by private people but were not sold new here. These can be very hard, or expensive to get good parts for. goood luck. ...bill in corvallis
