1300S and Special Edition

Info

This was my uncle’s 1300S. He bought it new in 1973 and used it sparingly until the early 1980’s when he bought a Renault 18 estate from the Guinness fleet. He sold his Beetle but it was stolen shortly afterwards. I don’t know if it was ever recovered which is a shame as it had only covered 50k miles in the 10 years he owned it. I have all the service history for it.
