Model information

1300S Beetle and Power Pack Beetle


In the summer of 1990 when it was all about Italia ’90, I snapped this 1300S Power Pack Beetle in Glasnevin in Dublin. Delivered to MDL as a fully built Beetle which all Power Pack Beetles were, this 1300S was sent to Denis Mahony’s in Glasnevin to be sold. It may have sat in the showroom for a number of months or perhaps it was being driven around with For Reg in the place of the registration number until it was finally registered in May 1973.

Despite being 17 years old at the time and parked on the street this 1300S / Power Pack Beetle was in excellent condition, with just a few of the typical parking dents that you would expect from any car parked on the street.
