Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


Congratulations to Michael O’Toole on the purchase of his new Beetle. Michael bought this 1970 Beetle in December 2022 and it is now in his workshop awaiting his attention, but from what we can see, this looks like it’s practically ready to go.

The Diamond Blue (L50B) Beetle was assembled in Dublin and sent to Carlow where it was sold and registered as EIC 898. Michael’s 1200 Beetle Deluxe looks to be in very good original condition, and retains all of its original features. We love original VWs and this one certainly seems to be untouched.
