Vehicle Description

1974 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type I

VIN:  1442080180


Owner History:


Karen Webb Garrett & Pat Garrett were long time residents of Midvale, Utah. Karen was a teacher & taught for the DOD then for Jordan School District, & Pat was a member of the US Airforce. They met on the US airbase in Tripoli, Libya. When they finished living & working abroad, they returned to Karen’s hometown of Midvale to set up home. They were avid collectors & part of that was a love of classic cars. They did not have a particular car or make that they collected, although Karen was partial to VWs. They just loved what they loved. They loved showing their cars at various car shows, driving them to & from work & driving them in local & regional Utah parades. This VW along with three other classic cars being offered at auction are part of their estate. Unless things were written down, much of what is known about the cars’ histories is either from hearsay, mechanics or is otherwise unknown.

The Bodywork is in good condition with some minor damage specifically on the passenger’s side. There’s a recently acquired scratch along the bottom of the door & side.
