Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1973 Volkswagen 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 '73 model and wow she is sharp!
