Model information

1200 Beetle


It has been in the shed the last 15 years after an unsatifactory restoration. The plan always has been to do a respray but more work is needed now.
The car came from Shannon and had been heavily cosmetically modified.
Black EMPI, colour coded engine, beige leather seats, De-chromed, pipe bumpers, wodden dash, twin pipe exhaust, wide fiberglass wings.

**Thanks to the owner of 8721 IU for uploading and including some of its story. Hopefully some day soon it’ll get some love and be recommissioned.
Good to see it in dry storage though so it’s not getting any worse!!**

EDIT 18-7-18: 2 more photos submitted by the owner after clearing space around the Beetle.
