::Models built from January 1940 to January 1980 -- For convertible beetles the last model year is 1980 (The very last VIN is n° 1592044140, built on 10th of January 1980!). Volkswagen marked them as well as model year 1979 (159 2 XXX XXX). On the other hand, model year 1980 for sedan Mexico beetles (Officially not available in U.S. market), VW has been marked them as 11A XXX XXX and they are NOT contempled in this VIN check, yet! From model year 1981 VW started to deploy the new 17 digits standard VIN and inerd.it® will try to update this website as soon as possible::

insert your VIN here:

You can insert VIN chassis type like the following:

A) 1- [serial_number]

B) [serial_number]

C) 1XY[serial_number]

D) 1 X Y [serial_number]

E) 1XY2[serial_number]

Where "X" stands for type and "Y" for model year

::Note - The "D" choice is because if you want to "Copy & Paste" a particular VIN from other websites (I.E. VW forums, ebay� etc.) sometimes it contains blank spaces. The inerd.it®'s VIN check will work as well as you didn't left them. Try it with this one 159 2 044140 rather than this one 1592044140!
