Well, I tried to cheat and Google it, as my big book of VIN's is at home. Very Happy

One place had a hit, supposedly, and wanted cash. Forget that. A freebie place said;

Quote:

Your VIN needs to be:

* Exactly 17 characters.


* For a vehicle manufactured after 1980 (1981 or later model year).


The last line being the issue.

I am sure I am making more of this than is needed, but I am bored at work
on my last night before 2 weeks of leave, so I am allowed...

Mr. Green

The first 2 tell you the model, the 3rd tells you what year.

Prior to 65, VW VINs were only 7 digits, 65 they grew to 9 digits
