Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


This Beetle was registered in May 1974 in Dublin. It happily trundled around the streets of Dublin for many years until it fell into disrepair in the early 1990’s. It was then restored by Emilio’s Beetles in 1992 and has been a daily driver by the same owner ever since. The Beetle was restored again back in  2014 and the owner has every intentions of keeping it on the road for as long as he can.

Now that’s what classic VW ownership is all about! Well done to the owner and to Emilio’s Beetles for keeping our Beetles alive!

If you have stories of long term ownership we would love to hear them so please get in touch beetleireland@gmail.com or 086-1665577
