1973 Power Pack Beetle

Country and/or Category: Fruit Series Edition, Republic of Ireland | VIN range: 113243 | S-code(s): S714 |
Extras/Options M-code(s): M976

A European 1300 S (1600cc with uprated differential, front disc brakes) for the Republic of Ireland with Lemmerz GT Sports wheels and L30M (59) Tomatenrot/Tomato Red paint (advertised as Monza Red) but with none of the accessories afforded the UK GT Beetle.

This batch of 1300 S cars imported to the Republic appears to have been built in week 52, a little later than the GT’s for the UK which was built around week 47 and the chassis numbers are later which would confirm this – 113234/235 (1300 S/GT UK) and 113243 (1300 S/Power Pack ROI). Imported into ROI during February 1973, possibly 300.
