I believe the both of you have mistaken a 0 (zero) with an O (oh). as the
Haynes puts it:
"The early models of the 1500 and 1500A were numbered serially from 0 to
1,209,302; after that a prefix letter was added to the engine identification
number, the prefix letter indicating the type of engine as under:
K   1500 and 1500S
T    1600
U    1600 FI
X    1600 FI auto"

Haynes #084, VW 1500 & 1600 Type 3, page 9, second column.
