But in that case code 992 is not explained .
Also curious is that imho code 416 is TWICE printed on the dataplate

Has your hardtop the chromed rails for connection of the ski-holder or Luggage rack ??



Hmmm, good catch about the 416 code being redundant. I checked a bunch of R107 dataplates that I had saved and most of them do not have the 416 code even when 6 code is present. I did find one dataplate online which also has the 416 code on it. Maybe they used it for certain years?



As for the chrome strips on the hardtop. Yes, I do have them.

Then might be code 992 for preparing the roof for mounting of those chrome strips .

If not, then I have no explanation for that code 992

Hope that will help.

I think they are standard on the R107 hardtop. They were an option on the W113. I could be wrong on this one though. Haven't researched this enough.

When those chromed rails were standard on the W107 Hardtop then you have to search for uncoded specific rare client options in german called KW-options.

For the 600 series we could trace several KW-options and you could there search if you find one that fits your equiped car
see : http://www.m-100.co/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=108&whichpage=2 and next pages
This overview is far from complete and based on the 600 serie.

Also could be that there are specific KW-options for the cabrio W107, which only show up for those cabrio's and which I don't have / can't investigate(d). Then you should ask in the W107 owners club for help.

Thank you for the link to the KW-options. I love stuff like this.
By the way, where did you get the KW-codes? Are they from the Production Orders or there are listed somewhere else?

You know what, I don't remember what type of seat belts it has. The car is in storage, so I can't check right now. However, this was originally a grey market import to the US, so I don't know if the seat belts are factory or part of the federalization process. Keep in mind, this is a 1979 car, I believe by that time automatic reeling seat belts were quite common if not standard.

Normaly factory automatic safetybelts at that time (till 31 may 1979) had code 437 ..

Your Datacard is from medio juni 1979 ..

If the mounted belts are from "Kangol" you got your KW options which is responsable for the code 992 .

KW 9705/03 for the driverseat and for the passengerseat.





Else take some pictures so I can try to judge if factory delivered ..

I'll take better photos when I'll go to the storage next time, but for now I found photos where seat belts are somewhat seen. I know this is not good, but maybe there are R107 experts here.

EDIT

So, I checked the price lists and I think seat belts became standard in 1973.
Price list for the 15.09.1972 lists code 43/8 (front automatic seat belts) as a paid option and in the 05.03.1973 price list the option disappears all together.

What I can see : that are defenitly factory automatic safetybelts.

As I wrote before : SA-codes are time related / time LIMITED

code 437 was for the automatic belts in the rear since 1 febr 1972 till 1 juni 1979.
Code 438 was for the automatic belts in the front since 1 febr 1971 TILL 1 October 1973.


438 :

01.06.1968 BIS 31.12.1970 zweipunkt SICHERHEITSGURT VORN + SICHERHEITSGURTE LINKS, RECHTS UND MITTE

01.02.1971 BIS 30.09.1973 SICHERHEITSGURTE AUTOMATISCH VORN LINKS UND RECHTS

01.05.1979 BIS 30.11.1990 WEGFALL SICHERHEITSGURTE IM FOND

In the period you car was build it was simply no code 438 for the front but a code for NO automatc belts in the rear .

I'm well aware of the option code reuse and it's a big pain in the butt. BMW is much better at this in my option, even though they also have the option code reuse problem, it's nowhere near as bad as the Mercedes though.

Anyway, what I was saying is that you could no longer order self reeling seat belts as of March 1973, meaning that the seat belts became standard at that point. Which is why there is no option code for them in the datacard and there would be no need for the 992 code.

So far, the only oddity about the car is the velour interior, but that should not trigger the 992 code on the body dataplate.

How do you then explain the codes 992 for those safetybelts on a 600 (the most luxury car from Benz) in the period of september 1974, januari 1975 and april 1975.
My car from april 1977 had code 437 on the datacard for the safetybelts .

I do not have an explanation for the 600. Maybe, because they are Kangol seat belts?

How about this. Another 350SL, built 3 months / 255 cars prior to mine.


As you can see it has no seat belt code, nor 992 code on the datacard and dataplate


yet seat belts are present

That indicates that I am wrong .
So there must be an other KW-option for which the body had to be prepared

Has your car an airkompressor and airfanfare/airhorn FIAM ??
