Model information

1300 Beetle Deluxe


Resting in a farmyard in County Cork for the past 10+ years. Unfortunately it is past restoration, however it has yielded some useful parts, including its engine so its heart still beats! I believe it is a 1972 car but I think its registration is circa 1974. It was not assembled in Ireland so it may have been imported at some stage.

Beetle.ie: Thank you to our good friend Charles for submitting this Beetle. It looks to be finished in the 1972 colour,  Maya Gold L98A ,which would tally with its first registration date in the UK of November 6th 1972. Being late in the 1972 production year this once 1300cc Beetle would have been the one of the first to have a 1973 chassis number allocated to it. As Charles noted, it was imported into Ireland and registered in County Clare in 1974.
