Model information

GT Beetle and Special Edition


This Apple Green 1973 Beetle is originally a UK “GT Beetle” special edition. Equivalent to the contemporary Irish “Power Pack Beetle” in most respects, the UK GT Beetle received a higher spec interior and a choice of three fruity colours: Lemon Yellow, Apple Green or Tomato Red.

This one must have been imported in early 1987 due to the very low “73 KE …” style reg which had just come into effect in 1987. Its Lemmerz sports steel wheels have obviously been replaced by standard steel wheels at some stage. Photographed at Trim, 2001.
