Model information

1200 Beetle and Deluxe Beetle


For most of us our obsession starts with one car. This is the one I started with. As a impressionable child my uncle would visit in his Beetle, with its turbo body kit and 2lt engine which i thought was the bees knees!

Then when he was leaving he would wave goodbye by doing doughnuts in our yard. Fast forward a few years and I managed to persuade him to give me the car. The intervening years were not kind however and after the strip down it was rotten beyond my abilities to repair. There it was left for another few years until I had the funds to do the job properly.
I’ve used it daily for the last few years after the rebuild and loved every minute of it, probably the only car I’ll never sell, it being the one where it all started!
