Original Irish registered 1974 Volkswagen Beetle 1200 for sale. Vintage insurance and taxation apply (€56). Taxed until the summer.
Fully restored in the early 1990s by Emilio’s Beetles, this superb example was restored again in 2010 by Emilio and refinished in its current colour Porsche Turkish blue.
I bought it in June 2018, and had Emilio perform a smaller restoration including both front wheel arches, back apron, gutter, brake lines, fuel lines, new radio with USB, some sound insulation and a few more bits. It has been fully treated and sealed underneath.
It has been in regular use ever since as our second car, it’s incredibly reliable, lots of fun to drive and is a real head turner. The car is listed elsewhere so may be withdrawn at any time.
Can be delivered for free within a reasonable distance of Galway. Delivery further afield can be arranged for a reasonable fee. Any inspection welcome.
