Engine and chassis numbers
for the Type I VW

The Type I engine number is stamped on the crankcase under the generator support facing the rear and the chassis (I.D.) number is on a plate in the front compartment and is also stamped on the tunnel under the rear seat. Safari owners see Changes and New Ideas.
Starting in 1969, most VW's have a metal plate in front of the driver on top of the dash right next to the windshield with the chassis (I.D.) number stamped on it.
Starting in August 1964 (1965 models) VW started to use a nine-digit chassis number. The first three numbers give information about the kind of vehicle it is and the year it was made and the last six numbers are the chassis numbers. At the beginning of each model year (August), the last six digits start with 000,00 1. For example: 316,050,000 means a Type 111, 1 stands for sedan or fastback and the 6 for 1966, the 50,000th made that year.
In 1969 (for the '70 models), VW chassis numbers became 10 digit numbers with the addition of a 2, like 2000,001 so 361,2037,843 indicates a 1971 squareback (Variant).Similarly 211,2109,322 indicates a 1971 Bus and 113,2365,987 is a 1973 Type I Bug.
