Type 3 Serial Numbers

Cross reference of Dates to Chassis Numbers and various Engine Numbers

Type 3 Volkswagen vehicles manufactured before 1972.12.31 are eligible for UK Vehicle taxation as 'Historic Vehicle Classification' and pay no duty. However they must display a current Tax Disc and comply with all other legal requirements. The second digit of the Chassis number shown above will vary depending on the vehicle body type, ie 'Notch back', 'Fast Back' or 'Variant'. VWOC(GB) can help with age certificates.
