Model information

1300 Beetle


A 1973 Beetle restored by Emilios beetles. Now residing in Sligo.

In a previous life, this beetle was a pretty wild custom car with wide fibreglass wings, blended into the bodywork, a louvered fibreglass engine lid and some huge wheels to fill those arches. The more recent renovation has turned it back into a respectable looking, very much usable car for many years to come.

Note the “RIM” reg is from Galway in 1982. This car was an early import to Ireland.
