Model information

1300 Beetle Deluxe


“As I was digitising old family photos as part of a retirement project, I recently came across this one featuring our 1966 VW.
The only family car we had growing up was a VW Beetle. Starting with a 1955 Oval (IR 7364 – I think), progressing to a 1966 Sea Sand VW 1300 shown in the attached picture and finally a 1971 VW 1300 (JIR 471). The last two bought from Cunningham’s VW Garage in Tullamore.
The picture shows my parents, uncle and American cousins in 1970.”

Thanks to Tom for submitting this old family photograph. We really love these old family snaps.
