Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


Barn-find. That means nothing to non car people but to the likes of us it’s the best sounding word. It doesn’t always (NEVER) mean you’ll find a zero mile, all original VW that’s been kept in a dry warm barn and can with one single turn of the key fire up but in reality this never happens but we all live in hope that we’ll find that long lost treasure that’s just waiting for its day in the sunshine once more.

MIO 721 is a 1200 Deluxe Beetle that was first registered in the county of Kildare back in 1970. Little is known of its past but our good friend Herbie Graham has unearthed it and offered it for sale. It’s a typical barn-find, well for Ireland anyway, in that it has rust because we are not blessed with a dry climate but what it dos have is oodles of potential to be transformed into whatever you like be that a Rat Look Beetle, a fully restored show winner or just a Beetle that will give the owner many hours of pleasure as they go through the restoration process.

If you fancy owning this barn-find Beetle then we’ll happily put you in touch with Herbie but be fast because there is a lot of interest in it, and we can see why.
