THE SUPERKÄFER -> VIN NUMBERS

Below is a complete list of VIN and engine numbers, not only covering the Super Beetles, but standard Beetles (1970-1975) as well. Follow the links for the months to find out any changes that occured during that month.

As you might guess from the numbers below, working out the year of your Beetle is easy. First find your chassis number. On the Super Beetle, these are found underneath the back seat in the middle of the 'tunnel', and on a plate right next to the boot catch underneath the bonnet. The first 3 numbers of the chassis number are the model type and model year.
For example: 112 2 299 678 is a Type 1 (Beetle) from the model year 1972.
(11) is the type (2) is the model year and (2 299 678) is the unique serial number of the car.
