    You're missing a digit.
    244 = 240 with 4 doors
    4 = B21,
    A = 1980 model year
    1 = production plant, Torslanda Sweden
    583166 = chassis number (1980 range: 482585-592109)

    Look on the windshield pillar, in North America there's a plate with a
    code that starts with "VC" that has an extra digit that includes the
    engine type, eg B21A instead of just B21.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
    (But I check the newsgroup more often than this email address.)
