Model information

1200 base model and 1200 Beetle


I bought it from a workmate that used it as his daily driver for a number of years, so unsure of its history. Original colour was purple and it seems to have been painted yellow too at some stage but it’s now the red/white two-tone seen here. Original engine was 1300cc but has since been fitted with a 1600cc twin port. I use the Beetle a few times a week here in Mitchelstown.

Thanks for submitting Dominic

Dominic’s Beetle was registered in Dublin back in Jan 1976 – UIK was only used in January 1976
