Classic oval window VW Beetle 1200 Kandy Sri Lanka

Classic oval window Volkswagen Beetle 1200 parked in the centre of Kandy, Sri Lanka. Capture date September 1990.

This Beetle looks to be in pristine condition and is evidently owned by a VW enthusiast. The registration plate has the number 1302, which refers to a much later Beetle. Oval window Beetles were produced until 1957, after which the larger rectangular window was introduced. Beetles can still be seen in many tropical regions of the world.
