Model information

Oval Window Beetle Deluxe


This absolutely stunning August 1956 registered Beetle was the pride and joy of the late Paddy O’Callaghan from Kanturk. Paddy had an impressive collection of VWs, and thankfully, many of them are still with his family who continue to enjoy them. If you look at any show photos from the 1990s you are guaranteed to see this Polar Silver Oval on display, and probably Paddy leaning against it chatting to the many VW enthusiasts who flocked around Paddy to talk VWs and his rallying days behind the wheel of many an aircooled VW.

This particular Oval Window Beetle is in storage and is currently waiting for a restoration but the O’Callaghan family will have this Oval back on Irish roads very soon. We would like to thank Colin & Glenn Williams for supplying these photos.
