The Mercedes Benz 107 Chassis Specification Numbers

Chassis Numbers

R107 The R stand for Roadster.

The first three numbers on your chassis number (ignore any letters) tell you the body style. 107 = 107 series chassis

Engine Numbers

Engine numbers since 1959 have followed much the same pattern as the chassis numbers.

The first three numbers identify the type of engine. For example the M110 is a type of engine.

The 107 chassis, is sometimes referred to as "R 107" for "Reihe" (series). U.S. models built on the 107 chassis were the 350 SL, 380 SL, 450 SL, and the 560 SL. (One of the European models of the 107 family was a "280 SL"). Production of the first R107 car, the 350 SL, started in November 1970 alongside the last of the W 113 cars.
