Hi

I have had my vw beetle with above chassis and engine number for a long time. Earlier it had a modified (different) engine. Now I am trying to restore it to its original specifications.

Could you please help identify the correct year of manufacture and along with engine details.

I think this is 1958 and type 1 (1192cc 30 hp) engine.

Thanks for the help.

Chassis number is for Feb/Mar 1958 and the engine number seems to be the same, so you could well have a '58 with original engine. Check for yourself in the Samba Archives: http://www.thesamba.com/...fo/bugchassisdating.php

The only way to be sure is to send to the Wolfsburg Museum for your car's birth certificate: http://www.thesamba.com/...nfo/bugchassisdating.php
