Model information

1303 Beetle


It’s not often that we get the same car submitted within the same week but this is what happened here in this case. Keith O’Sullivan and Noah Ryan both spotted this 1303 for sale.

This particular 1303 is a 1976 registered model with only three owners from new which is something special for a car that’s heading for 50 years old!

RIR 515 has had a new exhaust fitted as well as new tyres on all four corners. Behind the new front tyres you’ll see a new front disc brake conversion setup which has got to be a good thing, especially as it’s running a 1600cc engine. Other items on the shopping list was a new battery and a replacement fuel filter.

The Cunningham’s of Portlaoise dealer sticker is a nice touch. This Beetle is for sale in Clonakilty in County Cork at the moment for €10,000
