The Project

A 1972 Volkswagen 1300 which came into Carrosserie HQ in June 2024. This car was originally a coupe but has had the roof removed at some point in the past along with the quarter lights on the door, so everything is having to be specially made or manufactured.

12th June 2024: A bespoke replacement hood was manufactured and fitted, along with a full engine service. Fitting of bespoke replacement seals to doors and windows was also carried out.

For many car fans, the 1200 was the definitive Beetle. It’s the most numerous, and arguably the most familiar because of it. The main improvement – aside from the more powerful engine was the vast improvement in visibility thanks to larger front and rear windows.

This generation of Beetle car was constantly updated until 1968, when it was thoroughly revised again to become the 1300. New headlamps and thicker bumpers were fitted, and an upgraded safety kit added inside. Mechanical changes included – 12-volt electrics and dual-circuit brakes, plus a fuel tank that didn’t have to be filled by via the luggage compartment.
