Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


Anyone that has been attending Volkswagen shows over the last ten to twenty years will recognise this 1972 Beetle as it has been a regular at most classic VW shows and gatherings in Munster. These photos were taken at the Limerick Show in 2008 which at the time was held in Mungret GAA club.. The Limerick Show was and still is to this day, run by the Limerick Classic & Vintage Car Club.

As you can see this Beetle has been personalised by its long term owner by adding some accessories to add some shine to their pride & joy.

This 1200 Beetle Deluxe was assembled in Dublin at the start of May 1972 before being sent to Andrew Dillon & Sons VW dealership in Clonmel, County Tipperary. The Havana Brown (LD8A) Beetle was sold to its new owner at the end of May 1972. 1117 HI is displaying a rear window sticker from Wards Garage in Fethard, County Tipperary.
