Model information

Karmann Cabriolet and Split Beetle


This was one of the cars that made up a collection owned by Wayne McCarthy, not all at once but a collection none the less. Wayne has bought and sold quite a few show winning VWs over the years and has restored more than one. Although most of his VWs would not have been registered on Irish plates (as they may have been sold back to the UK) they spent a long time on Irish soil making a big contribution to the Irish VW show scene which is why they are included on Beetle.ie

1952 Spilt Cabriolet. If you’re looking for rare then this is it. A Split Window Beetle is rare but a Split Window Convertible is hens teeth!
