47 = 914-4
1 = 1971 model year
29 = Karmann factory
10258 = series number.

All of the 71s would have been 1.7s with D-jetronic EFI. You can't tell much other than the model year from the VIN...

I'm not 100%, but I thought the "29" was factory code for - "will rust once exposed to water"

Kidding.. sorta..
