We probably don't have to tell you there's something special about this 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. The bold paint, extra wide fenders, and racing wheels give it an aggressive attitude that's backed up by an enlarged performance-built VW motor. Best of all, there's only about 3,000 miles on this exceptional value of a custom build.
This is a cool take on graceful European styling, with added bold American flair. The dark metallic blue is the perfect way to introduce this Karmann Ghia to the world. The color is just a shade before midnight, which helps with the sinister attitude. It has the luster of a modern clearcoat, so it's the perfect gateway to custom body pieces such as the push bumpers, painted grille, and the fully integrated widebody kit. That last piece really upps the aggression. Starting in the front with a lower air dam that flows into the flared front fenders and onto the doorline, the body gets wider to help integrate the enlarged rear end that hold tires large enough to be a drag racer. And speaking of competition, the Centerline wheels really tell the world this VW means business.
The custom gray interior provides comfortable cloth bucket seats for two. The original basic gauges are gone, replaced by a full VDO package that gives you a much more comprehensive look at the mechanicals than the factory stuff. The center of the steering wheel has VW's Wolfsburg crest, but the upgraded sports wheel helps telegraph the front suspension's activities directly into your fingertips. There's even a Hurst shifter with line-lock for the best in performance. So while this one has a AM/FM/CD stereo, you really know the best soundtrack is coming from the protruding exhaust.
While this coupe has been very unique so far, the best standout feature is in the engine bay. The owner claims that's the original VW block, but as you can see, plenty has been invested in giving it a show-stopping shine, and very importantly, a ton more power. It's not just the dual carbs and other performance components that makes this one the hottest VW you can gets your hands on. We all know there's no replacement for displacement, so the four-cylinder has been bored out to 2110cc. The full package makes around an unbelievable 150 hp, which gives the lightweight coupe some serious performance. Add that to chrome headers and a bold exhaust, the result is the look and sound of an outlaw. But this custom KG is far from the unruly experience that its skull and crossbones VW logo may suggest. It has new inner and outer bushings, upper and lower ball joints, and new bearings, which make for a very solid feel on the road. Add in front disc brakes and the grip of Goodyear Eagle tires all around, and this is one outlaw that you can easily keep in-line.
Beautifully built, this car is about impossible to duplicate for the price. If you're a VW fan looking for something a little outside of the ordinary, this Karmann Ghia is one hot ticket. Don't miss it, call today!!
