Info

This late 1977 Beetle was really eye catching back in the 1990’s but if you look at it, there’s very little done to it, it was just clever thinking that made this Beetle look more modified than it was.

It was a Basic or Standard model but Vinny Derham’s decision to add the black paint to the rear half made it stand out from all the other Beetles at the time. A plucky little 1200cc engine powered this Beetle but it was a good one as it seemed to power it along at the same speed as Vinny’s mates who had 1600cc engines in their Beeltes!

1300S / GT Beetle rims finished off the look perfectly and proved you didn’t need to spend a fortune on your Beetle to make it stand out.
