Every Volkswagen is assigned a unique vehicle identification number that reveals information about the car, such as the year it was made, country of origin, manufacturing plant, type of engine as well as other details that help auto shops and vendors to determine the specific replacement parts your Volkswagen needs. Volkswagens made after 1980 have 17-digit VINs; Volkswagens that were manufactured in 1965 have only 9 digits. There are several websites that can swiftly decode the VIN on a 1965 Volkswagen. Websites that decode VINs possess databases that simplify the VIN decoding process.
