For Sale: 1974 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

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 coupe.

When a classic this unique is also priced so right, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
