Model information

1977 Beetle Deluxe


This is very nice looking 1977 Limerick registered Beetle. It has an interesting history going back to when it was bought new by the groundskeeper in Glenstal Abbey. It was then bought by the Father Superior of Glenstal Abbey before making its way to Innishannon in the beautiful county of Cork.

707 EIU was the pride and joy of its present owner who used it for her wedding, as well as having other VWs on the day to make it even more special. With a growing family and other commitments the owner has made the very tough decision to sell her baby to someone who has the time and ability to mind it in the same way she has done.

The car is dry stored in her mother’s 2 car garage so hasn’t been left out in the elements. Saying all that, there is some rust but that is to be expected in something that is 41 years old. We have not seen this car up close and can only go on these photos. If we get anymore high res images we will upload them here for you to see.

The original 1200cc engine is no longer with the Beetle but it has been replaced by a larger engine we believe. We are waiting to get the new engine number so we can see what size it is.

If you think this genuine Irish built Beetle is for you then get in touch with us and we will pass on your details to the soon to be heartbroken owner!
