1200 Beetle Deluxe
What can I say that this photo doesn’t already scream at you?
The January ’75 registered Kildare registered Beetle was scrapped under a scrappage scheme in around 2010 which is a real shame as it was reasonably sound. The owner would have received €1,500 from the garage and in reality, it was worth that. It did offer some spares though which is the silver lining to this cloud!
UPDATE 17-05-2020: This Beetle was assembled in MDL on the Naas Road in Dublin. It was finished in Lofoten Green (L61H) at the end of 1974. It was then sent to Sheehy’s of Carlow to be sold. It was registered to its new owner on 3rd January 1975.
