Description

TOP-NOTCH VW GHIA W/ NICE UPGRADES!! 1600 CC, 4-SPEED, FRONT DISCS, GREAT DRIVER

Beautiful, affordable, and a precision built... all the things that made you want a 1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia coupe when it was new is only amplified on classic like this where someone has taken the time to restore it properly.

There is a simple formula for a great classic European car – if you want style, go to the Italians; and if you want quality, buy German. But only a few companies were smart enough to do that, and the budget-friendly VW was one of them. The legendary design house Ghia seemed like they wanted to elevate Volkswagen's status as they mixed rounder corners with very muscular edges. The precision builders at Karmann were able to take this dream and make it into metal. It is truly rolling art. And the modern clearcoat shine radiating from this bright red really draws attention to all the elements of the unique design. Plus, it gets the fundamentals right with good window rubbers, complete trim, and the proper panel fitment of a well-respected classic.

Inside are more signs of solid investments. The tan interior with tweed inserts kicks off a full coordinated package on the carpets, headliner, trunk, and door panels. The upgrades continue with a retro-style AM/FM stereo that's really a modern digital tuner with USB connection for the best in modern music. And speaking of the tunes, you get a truly great experience with additions like the equalizer hidden in the glovebox and the subwoofers installed behind the rear seats. And the driver feels particularly sporty with the upgraded three-spoke steering wheel and EMPI lock-out shifter. Plus, the Classic Instruments full gauge package provides far more info (including a handy tach) compared to what you got in a stock Karmann Ghia.

You can tell even more money was spent in the engine bay out back. The VW's air cooled motor is iconic, and this tidy and shining presentation almost makes this legend a museum piece. More than just look great, it's a 1600cc unit – an upgrade over what was available in '64. Just like the Beetle, the performance was not meant to be record-setting. But there is there is a eutrophic moment for the driver that comes when you take full control of the four-speed manual transmission. And this one feels good on the road thanks to modern treads on the classic whitewall tires and an upgrade to front disc brakes.

The Karmann Ghia was born out of the idea of looking like a million bucks but paying far less. Today on the vintage market, this well-presented example is ready to turn even more heads for a value price. That's why we know something this affordable and nice will be leaving us quite soon.
