Model information

1300 Beetle, Anniversary Beetle, Beetle Deluxe, and Special Edition


This 1972 Anniversary Beetle was  once part of the Honan family collection of VWs. It was owned by Eilis Honan in the 1990’s. At the time it had the original (and rare) dash plaque which marked this Beetle as a very special Anniversary Beetle, celebrating the 20 millionth VW to be produced. Over the years this Beetle gained a rare Kamei rear window louvre and a glass sunroof as well as constant maintenance by Eilis’ father Jack who himself is a VW enthusiast.
