Model information

1300 Beetle Deluxe


Cork based Volkswagen enthusiast Wayne McCarthy was passing the Charleville Park Hotel in September 2022 when he spotted this Beetle in the car park. Any old car is a rare sight in the wild these days so Wayne swung around and took out his camera to capture the Bug before it disappeared.

This 1300 Beetle Deluxe was wearing a 1971 County Clare registration and it’s fair to say, judging by its condition in the photos, looks to have emerged from a very nice end restoration. It’s not often you see the limited run 2 vent 1300 engine lid in Ireland as we mainly sold 1200cc powered Beetles.
