If you have dreams of getting away in your VW Beetle this summer you may be considering some additional luggage-carrying options to ensure your show weekend or camping trip goes without a hitch.

Not only are rear-mounted luggage racks a super stylish accessory for classic and kit cars, but they give an extra load capacity for tents and suitcases to free up space inside for family and friends, without spoiling the vehicle’s aerodynamics, which could make all the difference when it comes to big hills or overtaking!

This stainless steel luggage rack by SSP is suitable for Beetle models with blade bumpers fitted as standard, including 1200 models up to 1973, and is cleverly hinged to allow access to the engine whilst still loaded. It features treated hardwood slats and is rated for 30kg of weight.

Priced at £284.95 they are stocked at HeritagePartsCentre.com and can be found online by searching for part number AC898050 ENDS.
