Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


“Hi. My Grandfather bought his Beetle as a one year old car from Brady’s of Arva in 1974. Although the body was a bit battered and bruised, the engine was very reliable and he drove the car until 1991. It was mainly used for short hops, but my Grandparents made annual journeys from Dublin to Cork, Leitrim, Donegal and New Ross. From memory, the car was sold to the Old Volks Home around 1995 and I believe that the subsequent owner was from Kerry. It’s probably gone to the great Beetle graveyard in the sky, but if anybody knows of its current whereabouts, I’d love to hear from them.”

What a great story Eoin and thank you for submitting it. We would love to help you find out what happened to your grandfather’s old Beetle so if anyone has any information, please contact us here at Beetle.ie and we will pass on whatever information you might have to Eoin.
