For Sale: 1970 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1970 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is all about beautiful style and solid engineering. And the potential you get from a value price means you can enjoy what you see today, and immediately start thinking about how much personalization you want to do tomorrow.

The Karmann Ghia coupe is one of the greatest examples of how art really is for everyone. After all, the design house Ghia made beautiful designs for premium marques like Lancia and Alfa Romeo. And that same level of artistic attractiveness went into this VW. The coupe looks like a rolling sculpture with a sharp yet rounded front end, front fenders that extend through the door, and a distinct roofline that seems to meld right into the rear. This one has good fundamentals in place with good body lines, complete bumpers, and newer weather-stripping. And overall, the value price is what goes to the heart of this car's appeal. There are many affordable and easy upgrades/replacements to the Karmann Ghia because so many components are also shared with the Beetle. So while you'll see room for improvement throughout this vehicle, the price also leaves room in your budget for you to create a truly individualized classic.

We like the coupes because they have a sleek profile, and they also give you a more useful interior. After all, the body seals right with the good German build quality, and there's a back seat for occasional use (and more often just a nice place for luggage.) The dash has a good sports car style with the Wood-like trim and more VDO readouts than you got in the Beetle. And the sports steering wheel, floor shifter, and high-back front bucket seats make it a proper driver's car. There are nice details like the newer carpeting, tweed door panels, and a taut headliner. And there are worthwhile additions that make this a better cruiser, like cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input for your iPhone.

Under the rear hatch is the familiar 1600cc flat-four motor. These air-cooled motors are famous for their hardy nature, and they are easy to give a Saturday tune-up under a shade tree. This one even has a newer carburetor. It has a nimble feeling out on the road, and the four-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control. Plus, features like front disc brakes and Pirelli touring tires make for a better driver.

Art is all about personal expression, and this Karmann Ghia gives you the potential to make it an individual reflection of your personal classic. Call today!!!
