1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
March 11–12, 2016
This unique and rarely seen 1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is the truly classic German carenthusiast find. Volkswagen capitalized on the overwhelming popularity of their Beetle by following “the people’s car” with a sporty sister: the Karmann Ghia. Produced from 1956 to 1974, the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia shared the Beetle’s reliable running gear. The response to the car‘s introduction was so positive that it quickly became one of America’s most imported vehicles.
Refinished in a beautiful two tone paint job shows extremely well with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. Front and rear bumpers fit properly and chrome shows extremely well, including the override bumper guards. All trim is present and finish is bright. Weather stripping is newer for both doors, front and rear glass stripping is in good condition with very little shrinkage in the front.
Simply put, as the German market values go up, so will the Ghia. Easy to restore and fun to drive. This could be a real German deal.
