For Sale: 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1969 Volkwagen Karmann Ghia Convertible! In the mid-50s Volkswagen was looking to make a statement with a new car. Initially called the Type 14 it would take the chassis and mechanicals from the Type 1 Beetle and the body would be styled by Carrozzeria Ghia and built by Karmann. Over the course of nearly 20 years production would pump out nearly half a million Ghias in Germany. Here we have a '69 model. The red paint is not without blemishes but does present well overall. You could call her a 10 footer, which is great considering the paint is 35+ years old. The black vinyl interior certainly goes well with the exterior and is in good order. The convertible top looks practically new and goes well with the interior. Powering this VW is a rebuilt 1600cc 4-cylinder engine mated to a believed original 4-speed manual gear box. The current owner has had her for over 8 years. Summer 2015 this VW received new brake pads, shoes, all rubber brake lines, new gas tank, fuel pump, carburetor, new wheels and tires. In the Spring of 2016, the car received the new top, seat covers & padding, and new carpet. Winter 2019 the motor was rebuilt, replaced clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and chrome kit. The car only has 2k miles on it since the rebuild. This Karmann Ghia is stated to originally come from Texas, then spent some time in New York before finding its way to Kentucky with the 3rd owner. The title is clean and clear and ready to be transferred into your name now! Drop the top, head out for a cruise on the town or on some fun curvy side roads where you can make fun use of that manual gearbox! Options on this VW are: Vinyl Interior, Manual Convertible Top, Seat Belts, AM/FM/CD Radio, and Alloy Wheels.
