Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


This is a very late 1967 County Wexford registered 1200 Beetle Deluxe. This Beetle would have been one of the first of the new 12 volt, upright models to have been assembled in Dublin, although it’s fair to say that it looks an awful lot different to the day that it left MDL bound for County Wexford.

Trevor Brady took this photo at the Inistioge Show in County Kilkenny in 2002 or possibly even 2003, he’s not quite sure. The Beetle was spotless and may have come out of a restoration and was looking very smart in amongst all of the other classic cars on display that day.
