Model information

1300 Beetle Deluxe


“Spotted on the way to Kildare Village (Jan 2023) was this very clean looking beetle being transported on the back of a recovery truck.”

Thanks to eagle-eyed Noah Ryan for this Beetle. It’s a 1973 model that was imported into Ireland and registered in 1981. The now Dublin registered Beetle is a 1300  Deluxe model and we think it could be Phoenix Red (L32K) but it’s hard to tell just from the photo. The engine lid is a Brazilian version so this Beetle has seen some work in its time.
