This 1974 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia has an Italian design, German
quality, and a touch of American custom flair with its adjustable
air ride suspension. It makes for international distinction, and
it's all offered for an exceptional price.
The Karmann Ghia name tells you why it's so desirable. The Italian
firm Ghia penned the sleek coupe lines, and the quality German
builder at Karmann built the sturdy sheet metal. But of course,
this one shows more than just a classic style. That bright yellow
paint can't help but scream it's a custom car. We're told this
color upgrade happened in the mid-1990s. It continues to look
vibrant today, but it also has aged. That makes for a custom look
that's easy to cruise without nervousness. And this kind of car
deserves to be out there showing off its unique total package.
There's an updated set of VW wheels, cool-cruising, whitewalls, and
the big booming exhaust tip. And the full-air ride suspension
allows you to dial in the kind of low stance that gets plenty of
attention everywhere it's parked.
The interior continues the custom car attitude. The bold yellow
returns as a custom accent for the door panels, heater controls,
and seat piping. And we especially like the custom presentation
done for the rear shelf. It's attractive to anyone getting a closer
peek at this car while keeping the overall easy-driver quality
that's always desirable in a VW. There are classic details, like
the Wolfsburg crest steering wheel, VDO gauges, and very
comfortable bucket seats. Plus, you have a full air ride control
system. And while you might think about installing a full custom
stereo system, nothing will ever be as loud as the train horn
installed in this coupe.
This was the final year for the Karmann Ghia, so it's nice to see
it with the largest powerplant of the series. The 1600 cc
air-cooled flat-four engine is a hardy motor familiar to any VW
fan. It carries the same durable reputation as the Beetle, which
gives this custom plenty of practicality. It's linked to the sturdy
four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most
out of the motor. And the exhaust is a den of snakes kind of header
with a single center exit like a Baja racer. So it's quite a fun
When a classic this unique is also priced so right, you know you
need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
