Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


Not too much is known about this County Limerick registered Beetle. This Sahara Beige Beetle was built in Dublin and then sent to The Service Garage on Mulgrave Street in Limerick. It was sold and registered to its first owner who lived in County Limerick, hence the IU registration as opposed to Limerick City which was TI, in the summer of 1975.

536AIU was photographed outside a Tony Cross’ garage in Limerick city and was in for some regular maintenance and some minor bodywork. Tony was the go-to man for aircooled Beetle repairs in Limerick.

UPDATE 15/2/20: Thanks to Paul Farrelly for submitting the photos of this 536AIU when it was at Martin Murray’s Eirespares Show in Monard, County Tipperary. The then owner was selling it on the day but we do not know if it sold.
