Yes, I have done that sort of math before and it's generally correct to within a week. I compared it against where the VIN # fell in the charts though, not against what it said on the birth certificate.

Are you wondering if that engine is original?
I would say Yes since it's so close, unless you know otherwise.
You can also Order a VW Birth Certificate and they will tell you if it's original if you give them to engine # to verify.

I received a birth certificate years ago but never gave a thought to looking up the engine number. I know I waited a very long time for the certificates as I sent in for three. I am not sure if they would answer my outreach to them with an engine number. I wish someone could publish the information they have that's got to be on a micro phisch somewhere......

On a side note, Is there an official way to find out how many ragtops were made in 55? Striking zero at this moment.

Thank you!

Nathan
