Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


I’m sure every VW enthusiast in and around the County Laois area would love to know where this Beetle is now and of course, to get the chance to own it. Not only is it a desirable 6 volt Beetle but more importantly it’s originally from County Laois.

The Beetle looks to be Ruby Red (L456) but it had been repainted at some point in its life as it was originally Anthracite Grey (L469) when it was assembled in Dublin in late May 1965. The 1200 Beetle Deluxe was sold from Conroy Brothers in Portlaoise in June.

This photo dates back to the early 1990s so it’s possible that this Beetle may be no more but there is always hope when it comes to old VWs.
