Description

The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was produced between 1955 and 1974, with some 360,000 coupes and over 80,000 cabriolets made. What is certain is that it was the most beautiful car ever produced by the BeetleMeisters, what is unclear is exactly how the car was designed and conceived. Certainly the initial idea was sparked by Dr Wilhelm Karmann, who was building the Beetle cabriolet, suggested to Ghia that a beetle-based sports car could be made and presented to VW for their approval.

Several people claim a stake in the cars concept, in addition to the obvious triumvirate of VW in Wolfsburg, Karmann in Osnabruck and Ghia in Turin. What is assured however is that this elegant design, considered by many to be way ahead of its time, holds a firm place in automotive design classics and the hearts and minds of many enthusiasts and collectors around the world.

This fantastic Karmann Ghia Cabriolet was delivered in 1969 fitted with the 1500cc motor which powers the car today. The Karmann Ghia looks stunning in Toga White with its original Navy Blue leatherette interior, matching white wheels and chrome wheel covers. The chrome in fact is in very good condition all round.

We love these Karmann Ghias; beautiful looks, good German engineering and very easy to drive and to maintain. The ideal classic? We think so!
