Model information

1200 Beetle, Ferrari replica, and kit car


What? A Ferrari on Are we branching out? Are we cracking up?

Believe it or not, you’re looking at what once was a humble 1973 1200 Beetle. VAI 986 started out in life as a Kasan Red CKD-assembled 1200 Beetle, which was sold through one of the Brady’s dealerships at the end of July 1973. Some time in its life, presumably after it became too rusty to be used on the road, its chassis and identity was used to build this Fiat/Ferrari Dino replica. It certainly looks much more exotic than its humble beginnings! It was photographed at an open day hosted by Pat Bolger in Waterford in 2008.
