Model information

1300S Beetle


March 2018: Photographed in Birr, County Offaly by Trevor Brady circa 2002. Trev hasn’t seen it since. It’s an original Irish 1300S/Power Pack Beetle

30th July 2019: Thanks to our good friend Peter Murphy for sending us these current photos. Peter snapped the 1300S at the Mountbellew Show and as you can see it has undergone a full restoration. The original colour of Tomato Red (L30M) has been changed for darker shade of red and the bumpers have been colour coded to match but otherwise this 1300S Beetle is looking very original.

This 1300S was delivered to Western Garages in Ennis where it was given its Clare registration.
