Found the engine number.  It's conveniently located right below the point
where the upper radiator hose connects to the head.  All I can see is "ME"
which is the code for a naturally aspirated 1.6 D.  I can't see the rest of
the code.

I think that it is stamped on the block near the head-surface in the
same area as all the casting numbers.  If you are looking at the engine
it would be above the vaccuum pump.  I'm beginning to think that the
striped blocks were German VW manufactured blocks for dealership
installation - warranty work and the like.
