Model information

Oval Window Beetle Deluxe


Thanks to Seán Crowley for submitting this great period photograph to the Beetle.ie Census. Seán captions the photo as follows:

“Billy Gannon and Paddy Ronan. Paddy holds a Brownie box camera and there’s a nice Volkswagen Beetle in view.”

This Oval Window Beetle was assembled in April 1955, meaning it was part of the last batch of Beetles to be assembled in Ballsbridge before the operation moved to the Naas Road in Dublin. This Iceland Green (L213) Oval Window Beetle Deluxe would have been sold from Campile Motor & Engineering Works in Campile in September 1954 which is when it was registered to its Wexford owner.
