With so many years of Volkswagen production, it's sometimes difficult to know exactly which year car you have. After 1955, the Volkswagen production years run from August to July so a car built in August 1967 is actually a 1968 model! To help with this, we have compiled lists of VW chassis numbers for various vehicles, to help you to reference.
It's quite rare nowadays to find a classic Volkswagen Beetle or VW Camper still fitted with its original engine. Because of the simplicity of the flat 4 layout it was sometimes easier to just replace the entire engine rather than fault finding and repairing. Therefore if you want to buy parts for your Volkswagen Beetle or Bus engine then please check your engine number. The same is also true of the Type 25 (T3) Bus, as it was originally fitted with four different kinds of engine and also for the T4, with a wide range of engines that were regularly updated. These guides will ensure that we get the right parts out to you first time, and get you back on the road.
