1500 Beetle Deluxe
When Jim McCallum sent us photos of this stunning Beetle we had to find out more. Just look at this Beetle, it’s beautiful!
Jim says that this Beetle is owned by Brendan & Kit Fay and is a 1967 1500 Beetle that was imported from South Africa. Finished in Ruby Red (L456) with Towel Rail bumpers and period perfect front spotlamps, it really is an eye catching Beetle.
Being a South African Beetle, it was assembled in CKD format, as we did here in Ireland. South African Motor Assemblers and Distributors Ltd were based in Uitenhage which is an industrial town approximately 750 kms east of Cape Town, 1,000kms south of Johannesburg and 35 km from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.
Jim took these photos at the Mosney Classic Car Shows in both 2011 and 2012.
Thanks for taking the time to email these photos to us Jim.
