    My Transporter came from Graz, Austria.

    (The Australian factory closed in dec '76, so any '77 models were German)

    The VIN is under the windscreen and on your rego papers.
    It should be something like;

    WVWzzz19zGW***********

    WVW VW Germany passenger car

    19 Golf 2

    G year model (1986)

    W manufacture plant (see table above)

    (The "z" is just a filler)

    I found out here that the GLi was later rebadged as a GTi
    http://www.vwgolfmk1.info/main/Buyingacab.pdf

    I have no idea where it was built, I think it has a new head of another mk1 on it because the head is Brazilian and everything els is German. You guys have told me you dont know either, so im still confused.

    This is what i got from the VIN decoder:
    Year: 1979 (or maybe a 1969 Ghia)
    Model: Golf Mk 1, including cabriolet
    Serial Production No.: 116636
    .: Mk1 GLS 3door .:. VT SS LS1 .:. VT HSV Senator .:. Mk2 GTI 2L :.

    What was the details again.

    If it's a '79 (Chassis number 179*******) Have a look at the glass and it will tell you whether it was made in Germany (Wolfsburg) or South Africa.
    If it has an Australian compliance plate, then it came from Germany.
