The production date is on the build card.  If you dont have yours you can get from the Classic Center.

Thanks Rumb, how can I get this from the Classic Center? Should I contact a local MB dealership here or can I do this online? It's not immediately apparent how and where to apply for a data card if I google MB Classic Center. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

You will need the Classic Center in Fellbach.

BTW trick question.  what is incorrect about the big billboard on the building at the top of that page?

eeeh.. wild guess. The original was a LWD :P

They had to reverse the image, because the environmental board would not let them cut the tree down.  with the image reversed the engine exhaust now shows.  what you see as the left side of the car is really the right side.

I'm fairly new to the forum. I have a 1979 300SD (built in 1978) with automatic on the floor.

I was just looking for the answer to a rather reasonable question, that was not answered in this poll: What type of automatic gearboxes were present, as in" 3-speed or 4 speed automatics? is it true that indeed ALL the automatic V8's were 3-speeds, including the 350? And that only the 6cyl had the option to choose 3 or 4 speed auto?

I just looked this up a few hours ago. Look at the chart near the bottom of the page.

Latest Star Magazine just came out with article about W116 50 year anniversary. They also feature a icon gold 1972 450SEL. They state the original buyer ordered before they were even off the assy line. He ordered with column shift and they sent him a floor shift so he made them make an entire new car the way he wanted.  They claim Mercedes stated back to him that his car would be the last column shift w116 they produced and that they would remove that option from the order sheets.
