Model information

1200 Beetle and Beetle Deluxe


I don’t know the exact date that I spotted this 1962 Beetle but it was probably the mid 1980s. All I do know is that I was too young to buy it, otherwise it would have come home with me.

It was parked at the side of a garage in Monastervin, County Kildare. Back then, parts were hard to find for ‘older’ VWs and if it needed more work than a newer 70’s Beetle it may have been overlooked. I would love to think that this ’62 was found by a loving new owner and it survived. Do you know it? Did it get a second chance or was it sadly scrapped?

UPDATE 23-1-20: I found a photo of the interior and one of the rear.
