Model information

1973 1200 Beetle Deluxe and 1973 Beetle Deluxe

Info

I bought my Beetle way back in 1992. By 2009, having been parked up by myself in 1994 (15 years) I decided to body off restore it.

Some metalwork was required such as the heater channels, quarter panels, floorpans while most of the other panels were in good shape.

It was a real DIY project with the welding and painting done by myself. Assembly was done with the help of my friend and local Bug nut Kieran Moynihan, he of the POS fame.

The engine is the original 1200 with only 61,500 miles on the clock. Wheels are 15″ Flat 4 BRM replicas with 145s on the front and 185s  on the rear. Since this photo was taken I have lowered my Beetle.
