This is a wonderful opportunity to own a classic Italian designed German built convertible with the reliability of Volkswagen.

Ghia Studios in Italy designed the body and it was hand-built by coach builders at Karmann of Germany. It was then matched up with the award winning and world class engine and mechanicals used on the VW beetle. American Walter Dorwin Teague included the Karmann Ghia in list of Most Beautiful designed products

History: This was originally a South Carolina car. It found it’s wat to the Car Museum of St Louis. The current owner had a complete Pre-Purchase Inspection commissioned for the car. It was done by Don R. Hoelscher in July 2010. Don is a profession Antique, Classic Automobile appraiser and a Judge at many events and competitions. His report shows that while this is not a Concours level restoration it is a very nicely restoration and one that can be driven, shown and enjoyed on a regular basis. “ It shows nicely and was fun to drive, it is a real eye catcher”. It has been housed in North Carolina since.

Since the purchase, the new owner had the seats firmed up with new cushioning and had the upholstery replaced with genuine leather with a yellow piping that matches the beautiful “Good to Excellent” yellow exterior paint.

The car has been recently serviced with oil change, new fuel filter and carburetor adjustment and starts right up and drives as it was intended.

Here is a chance to own an exotic looking European car at a fraction of other sports cars from that time and era. On top of that it is a convertible ready for those spring and summer drives and car shows.
