Description:

In Brief:

  • Rare seen Beetle Convertible
  • Finished in Maroon over a Cream interior with a Beige convertible roof
  • Owned by The Vendor for the last 24 years
  • Imported to the UK in March 1989

On the Surface: This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is finished in a Maroon exterior complemented by a cream leather interior and a beige roof. The car, in average condition, could benefit from some tender loving care to elevate its overall presentation.

Maintenance & History: Owned by The Vendor for the past 24 years, this Beetle has been a long-term part of their collection.

This Beetle was imported to the UK and first registered with the DVLA in March 1989.

The Model: The Volkswagen Beetle, officially the Volkswagen Type 1, was produced by Volkswagen from 1938 to 2003. With a distinctive shape that is instantly recognisable across the world, it is one of the most iconic cars in automotive history. The Beetle’s production spanned 65 years, making it the longest-running single-generation automobile, with over 21.5 million units produced on a single platform. The 1303 model, which this example represents, was introduced in August 1972, featuring a curved windshield—a design change that received mixed reviews. Despite attempts to modernise the Beetle, consumer interest waned, leading to declining sales. By 1975, Volkswagen had discontinued the 1303 and 1303S models.

Sale Insight: This 1974 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible offers an opportunity to purchase a rarer seen Beetle convertible that has the potential to be taken to another level. Having been in the ownership of The Vendor for the last 25 years it is now ready for another long-term custodian.
