Model information

Ragtop and Ragtop Beetle

Info

This gorgeous Beetle is the pride & joy of Jerry Flannery. Jerry bought this LHD Swiss registered Ragtop Beetle from a student who was travelling around Ireland in the early 1980’s and parked it in his brother’s hay barn. It sat there until he decided to fire it up and put it back on the road in 1986. It has been on the road ever since and Jerry has maintained his Beetle every year. Only recently, the ragtop canvas was replaced with a new cover from the US. The ’62 has even been the star of Jumpstart 2016 in Loughmore after CM Signs (Thurles) very kindly added (free of charge as a donation to Barretstown) the Herbie stripes and famous 53.

Over €3,000 was raised for Barretstown thanks to Jerry’s very special Beetle and Graham & Brian from CM Signs in Thurles (www.cmsigns.net 0504-24449)
