Model information

1300S and Special Edition


This original Irish registered 1300s Beetle is very unique in that it is still in the same family ownership from day one.

David Kelly’s father bought this 1300S new in Dublin back in 1973 and cherished his Beetle for many years but now David holds the keys and proudly displays this rare machine at shows nationwide. David has had his 1300S fully restored by Emilio’s Beetles.

Do you know any other VWs still in the ownership of the original family? If you do let us know.
