    It is still out there but has been SORN'D since May 2012 and it looks like it is now a 1600 but the engine code is still AB?

    Thankyou, this is more of a heartfelt search.
    Very sadly just lost my mom with 24 hrs. She was only 67 and it was caused by a burst annurism.
    She was very much into cars, and was my idol.
    If anyone has links or connections they can spread this information for me as I do not use the internet much so someone may be able to help me find the car.
    It was last known in the Warwickshire area of the UK.
    I will be very grateful for your help.

    It was originally white when we owned it.
    This would help me so much to move on.

    Please help and spread the word please. BBW956J

    Thankyou.

    Sorry to hear your story.
    As Crasher says the car is still out there. The engine has been changed from 1300 to 1600 so someone has done some work on it.
    First registered in 1971 It now appears to be yellow in colour and had been MOT'd in 2009 at 13,106 miles but no history since.
    If it had still been "alive" and was / is being restored etc the VW owners club would be a good first option especially with the reg number in existence and SORN'd.
    IMO that is worth a try as you have nothing to lose and as I said I discovered my much loved RS2000 burnt out but fully restored via assistance from the owners club.
    I wish you well.
    Sam.
