Model information

1303 Karmann Beetle Cabriolet


I have always had Beetles since the 1970s and here is my original RHD 1303 Convertible Beetle. It makes up two of the VW members of the family that live in my garage. This Diamond Silver Metallic cabriolet which I purchased in 2005 was entered in the concourse d’elegance’ at the famous Stanford Hall VW Show scoring 117 out of a possible 140 during the 1980s. At present this vehicle has only covered 68,000 miles from new.
