    Hi Ash, congrats on the purchase! The 1043cc used used in the Trabis was also used in the "Breadvan" shaped Polos and the 6N shape, until about 99 when the 1.o MPI engine was introduced. Not 100% sure on the MC compatibility, after looking at a few on Ebay and trabantwelt, they do look similar.
