Model information

1200 Beetle Deluxe


This beetle is one of the last batch of Beetles to be made here in Ireland. The Manila Green Beetle was built in late 1976 and was registered in early 1977 in Tipperary North. It looks to have been minded over the years and was showing all the signs of being  pampered when we spotted it at Martin Murray’s Eirespares Show back in 2007.  We’re not sure when the Marathon wheels were added but they look great on this otherwise stock Beetle. A respray and new (trimless) window rubbers tell us this Beetle was being looked after.
