Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


Photo of my father’s old Beetle which was the only car he ever bought new. I don’t have any other information on it because dad isn’t really a car person whatsoever!! This photo was taken in the late 1960s I think (photo not dated) and by the look of the car, not long after he bought it.

Beetle.ie: Thanks to Martin for submitting this photo and the information on his father’s old Beetle. It’s an Irish assembled 1200 Beetle Deluxe that was probably sold from a Waterford dealer as it was first registered in County Waterford in April 1967. If it was in fact sold from a Waterford dealer then it was either sold from VW Waterford, on the quay in Waterford city or from Fennell Brothers in Dungarvan, County Waterford. Incidentally, VW Waterford was owned by MDL themselves.
