Volkswagens answer to the demand for a sporty “People’s Car” was the Karmann Ghia.
The body was designed by Ghia of Turin Italy and the coachwork was hand built by Karmann of Germany. The result was a low, 2+2 coupe with a proportional front and read end.
Internally called the “Type 14”, it utilized the VW Beetle’s existing engine and mechanicals which offset the high cost of the new body. Built from 1956 to 1974 it soon became one of America’s most imported automobile.
Even though there were so many imported, there are very few today that qualify to be restored as in this particular specimen. Look at the pictures closely of the exterior, interior and underside.
It is finished in a bright green non metallic with a new black interior. It has the standard 4-cylinder 1584cc/50hp 1bbl engine with a very rare three speed synchromesh automatic transmission.
After 63 years of selling, both new and pre owned, Rolls Royces and Bentleys and other great motorcars from this same location, I can truly say that this motorcar is one of the best on the market today.
It is for the true connoisseur who understands that this masterpiece will afford one endless years of driving pleasure but also strong appreciation in value.
I believe that anyone should be able to own their dream at a reasonable price. I search all over looking for motorcars that fit my criteria, low mileage, excellent condition cosmetically and mechanically, at a price that you, the consumer can afford. My motorcars may cost a little bit more but you are receiving the best of the best.
