Issue 184 IVS & Issue 43 RC





Gracing the cover of the October 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene is an Irish-assembled 1973 VW Beetle that remained with its first lady owner for an amazing 45 years. After being sold in 2018, it’s only moved a few miles from its original home and remains in Co. Kildare, in a collection that also includes a 1967 MGB GT and a 1954 Morris Minor that we also take a look at here. Our second car feature also takes in a look at the owner’s collection, but focuses on their recently-refreshed Triumph TR7 in its original and very eye-catching shade of yellow.
Our tractor feature this month tells the story of a recently-restored Massey Ferguson 399, a modern classic that made quite an impact in the agri industry when introduced in 1986. Our motorcycle feature takes a look at the four military motorcycles of a long-time WW2 enthusiast (Matchless WD G3L, BSA M20, BMW R75 and Zundapp KS750), while our commercial feature tells the tale of a 1986 Toyota Hilux that’s been proudly restored by a young enthusiast as his first work vehicle.
