Description:

1960 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Begrudgingly selling my 1960 Ratrod look VOLKSWAGEN Karmann Ghia. This is a very cool car and attracts attention everywhere it goes. I got the car in Texa, where it had been parked since 1976. I went through ALL of the mechanicals first. All of the brake system was replaced from the master cylinder to all of the hard lines... Drums all turned and semi metallic brake shoes were installed. A later model 1967 short axle transmission was installed and a new Sachs clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. The Ghia now sports a smooth running 1600 single port motor with rebuilt 34mm dual Dellorto carburetors. It purrs going down the road. The car has new KYB gr2 shocks all the way around. The link pin front end has 2 1/2 " drop spindles to give the car it cool stance....the Ghis rolls on a set of EMPI Sprint Stars ...The electrical has all been gone through and upgraded to 12 volt. Everything works....including the sapphire l radio and the dash background lights ... I custom built a very cool looking tachometer that looks stock and looks factory.The interior Has all been done as well. The Headliner, door card, seats and carpet are new....All in al, a very cool ride. Priced to move ....
