Welcome to Eircooled
Our Ethos is simple; We promote, maintain, and encourage the use of classic aircooled vehicles. We run the club in an open, inclusive, and democratic environment. We encourage all members to have an equal say and part to play in the club.
I hope you are keeping well.
May I ask in private your asking price as I'd be very interested in the car... I've been a big fan of type 3 and might also discuss what's involved etc.
Kind regards, Darren 0864042248
Hey Stump (apologies, I don’t know you real name).
Thanks for selecting my bug photo for the calendar.
you were looking some more info on it, it’s a late 67 1500 single port 12v first of the bugs to get disk brakes, originally registered in England. Has a genuine Golde 3 fold ragtop installed by Allard coach-works company in Putney. Apparently they were the only VW authorised company allowed to install them into outside of Wolfsburg.
Last on Uk roads around 1995, officially imported into the Ireland around 10 years ago. Underwent full body off restoration got whatever was needed (quite a lot inc. new loom) and engine rebuilt by the legendary late Tommy Murray, fired up on the button when it was reinstalled. Went back to bare steel and it’s original stock colour of Chinchilla grey. The ragtop was originally black vinyl but I thought the burgundy Sewfine canvas just helped to give it that wee bit more touch of class. Only back on the road last month.
I’ve been slowly doing bits over the last 15 years on it and am looking forward to enjoying it for years to come. I must actually get it entered into the census.
Thanks again and hope to meet you in person soon.
Hi There, I spoke to First Ireland yesterday about taking out a classic car insurance policy and was referred to you to get a membership.
Can you please let me know how I should go about applying ?

So here are the wheels on the car! The paint shows signs of staining from the tyre, as I suspected it would, but for a summer of pleasure I’m satisfied with the result. Replenishment is easy. All done by hand.
Hi everyone I am new to all this, I am hoping to pick up my 1970 1302 soon and really get the same enjoyment that you lads and ladies get from your beetles. I am looking forward to meeting you all and any advise will be greatly received
