Re: [T3] Getting my Fastback home

<x-charset iso-8859-1>> The chassis number on it is 311 2064191; can anybody tell me when it was

Probably early October; it's about half way between Aug 1 (311 2000 001) and
Dec 31 (311 2108 457).

If it's German production series, you can work it out for that year by
reading the painted body-plate on the left-hand end (viewed from in front)
of the front panel (hood lifted up).

Note the number, which will be a bit like 12-3-4567.  The 12 is the week of
the calendar year (1970 in your case) and the '3' is Wednesday.  '4567' is
the production reference number for that day, and usually starts with 3 or
Use the calendar wizard in Word to give you a 1970 calendar and work through
it a week at a time to get the date it was made.

The result is usually correct - I have seen the odd one made a day or so
later than planned, maybe due to a paint fault on the body (at one time I
had 3 Squarebacks in the drive, made on consecutive days, but the chassis
numbers were not in the right order).  That was stamped on during final
assembly I think.

The page to look for is www.hallvw.clara.net/dating.htm which gives a
picture of the plate you are looking for.
