Model information

1300S Beetle


Thanks to Noah Ryan for submitting these photos of a 1300S Beetle that he spotted on top of a container in Dublin. It’s certainly a unique way of storing a Beetle that’s for sure! The owner is using it to advertise his business for now but the eventual plan, time allowing, is to give this Beetle a full restoration. The owner has had the engine rebuilt and will install it when the Beetle is restored.

The Beetle is a 1975 Tipperary South registration so it’s possible this 1300S was imported from the UK in 1975. We’d love to see it restored and hopefully one day it will but for now, it sits above the local market in Stillorgan.

Thanks again Noah for submitting this VW to the Beetle.ie Census.
