Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


The story behind this 1972 Beetle is that it was registered in May 1972 in Dublin and like most other Beetles it was put to immediate use as daily driver, workhorse, taxi, shopping carrier etc! At some point in its later life it was bought by an enthusiastic restorer but it didn’t go to plan so was brought to Emilio’s Beetles to have the wrongs righted and finish the restoration. That was back in 2016 and now this Beetle calls Waterford home where it is used as a daily driver.

UPDATE Beetle.ie 22-06-2020: Thanks to the lockdown this old photo of 4435 ZD was recently found and scanned. It shows the Beetle in 1989 or 1990 in Churchtown in Dublin. The Beetle looked extremely original then although there was some rust developing on the passenger door bottom.
