This 1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia mixes street machine style, a
classic interior, and well-regarded hardy VW power. Best of all,
this iconic coupe is available right now for quite a nice
This is a cool take on graceful European styling. The Pearl White
is a more modern application, and so it has plenty of pearlescent
glow to really let the sunlight highlight all the special curves
sculpted by the Italian design house Ghia. And with the bumpers
expertly deleted, there is a purity to this presentation that's
absolutely attractive. Plus, the upgraded wheels, wide tires, and
lowered suspension make this look quite sporty. There's room for
improvement in the details, and the value price should leave room
in your budget if you want to make any additions. But overall
there's an attraction here because it's a distinct coupe, and the
VW community is all about adding your own personal flair.
The interior is a pure vintage style atmosphere with low-back
bucket seats, a taut headliner, wood-like trim on the metal dash,
and even the AM radio is still there for display. It's the right
ideal for a simple/hardy VW, and just like the exterior, there are
also plenty of budget-friendly upgrades available to give it the
right personal touch. And the sports steering wheel and EMPI
shifter make it a good driver's car on day one.
The air-cooled flat-four mounted in the rear should be instantly
recognizable to VW fans. This is believed to be a 1200cc unit. It
has a newer rotor cap, newer plug wires, and a dual-carb setup.
Just like the Beetle, the performance was not meant to be
record-setting. But when you have a hardy and strong heart like
this, and the control of a four-speed manual transmission, it makes
for a lively time behind the wheel.
This is the vintage coupe with a sleek style and a great price. So
if you love the idea of creating a classic with a ton of personal
passion, you know this is where you want to start. Call
