To avoid misunderstandings: W123 is correct!

I originally posted it with the picture as V123 because all the limousine-W123-like were listed as V123, but did not change after that :D

so where the heck came the idea of V from?? :??:

Alexander DE

2006-10-16 21:14

Perhaps from 'Long Vheelbase'... :lol:

Someone made a typo and all the others copied without checking!

Also some V124: /vehicles_make-Mercedes-Benz_model-V124.html
But, Alex, why did you rename all these V123 so quickly? :( It was not a typo...

Try looking for 'Mercedes-Benz V123' on Google.

Apart from the Wikipedia entry and subsequent copies of it I cannot confirm any other use but W123 for all variants.
Have a look here for example: http://www.w123-club.de/html/w123.htm

I remembered that we talked about the Mercedes-Benz chassis codes before, almost exactly one year ago:
Link to "forum.antp.be"

At that time I received the information from DaimlerChrysler that the following codes are being used today:

W for Limousine
S for Estate/Break/Station Wagon
A for Cabriolet
C for Coupé
R for Roadster
V for Limousine with long wheel-base

This system was started sometime in the 1990s, as far as I know. Before only W was used.

I guess that some people try to introduce the new system for older models, too. This might even be true for parts lists handed out today that cover older models.

To sum it up: For modern (approx. post 1990) long wheel-base limousines 'V' is correct, before 'W'.

R107 seems quite common, though...

Alexander wrote W for Limousine

Be careful when you use the term 'Limousine' in an English (or French)context. The German word 'Limousine' denotes a saloon or sedan in English, or 'berline' in French. A 'Limousine' is something entirely different in English (or French).

antp BE

2006-10-17 14:36

Though it is usually used for stretched ones, in French it means 6-window sedan.
In English (US & UK) it is even something different... cf this discussion: http://forum.imcdb.org/forum_topic-6-Limousines.html

I got confused...What is it then? W123, no?

Alexander DE

2006-10-17 23:38

No wonder you got confused ... :)

It is W123 for all versions, sedan, coupé, estate and limousine.

Some time in the 1990s (long after the W123) new letters were introduced: W for sedan, C for coupé, S for estate, A for cabriolet, R for roadster, and V for limousine with long wheel-base. Some people (and even parts catalogues, as Ralph said) apply these new letter codes for old vehicles, too. Here it gets confusing and I would strongly advise not to do that for our classifications.

So far I do not know when exactly in the 1990s this change took place, or if it was introduced individually with new models only.

I think that we could still use R107/C107 for example as it is a very common one.
But I agree that for the other old ones they should stay as W.
