1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Up for auction is a beautiful 1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia with 63,409 (verified by title) original miles. This car has been in Los Angeles, CA since day one and has the original California black license plates on the front and rear. The car has never been hit and has a clean title. It is as rust free as you can hope to find for a 51 year old classic. The entire sheet metal has been gone over multiple times with a magnet and past the test. Recent work (with all receipts totalling over $6,000.00)includes: fresh motor rebuild to 1915cc with rebuilt dual German Solex 40mm carburetors, new brakes, new battery, new dual horns, new carpet kit, new fuel tank, new "quiet"performance muffler,new fuse holder, full tune-up including valve adjustment, heads torqued, carbs synchronized, all fluids changed, and new points. This Karmann Ghia runs beautifully and is ready to drive anywhere and enjoy. The original 4 speed transmission shifts perfectly, and the car handles great. The original 15" VW "smoothie" wheels are in terrific shape. Included with the car is a factory tool kit, original spare tire, original owners manual, and original jack. The AM/FM radio is a "Retro Sounds" reproduction and is a wonderful radio to enjoy with dual Alpine 6 x 9 speakers (box style). No original sheet metal has been altered for the sake of speakers. Everything works on the car as it should except for the clock. Quality Karmann Ghia's of this type are getting harder to come by and make for solid investments. This car has blemishes in the paint and is not a restored 10 point show car. It is, however,a very solid and handsome car that will make the new owner very happy.

The Karmann Ghia was purchased from a family which owned it from day one. The car is quite striking and looks even better in person. Interior features original steering wheel, low-back vinyl seats, and seat belts. The windshield wiper motor was rebuilt to a 12 volt. Additionally, the gear box linkage was rebuilt, for super-smooth shifting, a long-lasting 42 series Interstate battery was installed, and all light bulbs have been replaced and function properly. The suspension is excellent, and the car is a very smooth ride, with tremendous acceleration. Perfect for driving on city streets and freeways.
