Model information

Karmann Beetle Cabriolet


This 1974 VW Karmann Beetle Cabriolet was imported into Ireland in the mid two thousands. Like many Karmann Beetle Cabriolets in Ireland, this particular one was originally built for the US market. It had been converted to right hand drive at some point in its life. The original wheels had been replaced with Lemmertz style rims, the suspension was lowered and it had custom flushed rear lights fitted.
It then made its way to Emilio’s Beetles in 2010 where it was restored back to original condition. The restoration was extensive and consisted of new floorpans, outer sills, rear quarter panel lower sections, lower front quarters, front and rear valances as well as various metalwork repairs around the body to eradicate any signs of rust and protect it for many years to come.
 If you’re travelling the roads of County Limerick on a warm sunny day you will probably see the happy smiling owner behind the wheel. Give him a wave and if you’re talking to him tell him you read all about his pride and joy on Beetle.ie
