That site is very good for decoding tags and looking up production data.

thanks for your interest but there is nothing for my vin code I think, vin code gives information for the models over the 1980's

Call or visit a Volvo dealership and have them run the vin.

I think you're missing one digit for the engine code.

244 = model
4_ = engine
A = 1980
0 = Kalmar factory
588043 = chassis number

According to the production figures, 1980 starts at chassis number 482,505 for the 244 and 106,012 were built.

Yours is just an earlier style VIN tag. They all can be decoded for car information. Volvo the cars by Bjorn Eric Linhd has great production information.
