Description:

1970 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia --

The Ghia was produced for 18yrs thru VW and throughout the world as a compliment to the Porsche 356 offering both convertible and coupe versions. The later models bringing some needed extra creature comforts and sportier lines that were an instant success in all the world markets. The car was affordable and easy to maintain without a large price tag to service. This also provided a much needed car for the VW dealers to sell that had more style and... demand then the Beetle. This nicely restored Karmann Ghia was a labor of love for the previous owner and his wife. They purchased the car 12yrs ago out of the West and spent the past 3yrs restoring and building the car back to the way you see it now. Many hours of labor were put into this project and according to previous owner over $28k in parts, labor and love were spent. The car shows very nicely with a nice paint job and fresh chromed bumpers and other brightwork. The car had the long list of things fixed, replaced or rebuilt in just the past 450miles. • New "A" motor case tuned to 1641cc • New pistons • New cylinders • New heads • New cam • New lifters • New oil pump • New rods • New bearings • New carb • New distributor • New fan shroud • New wiring kit • New relays • New ignition switch • New turn signals & brake switches • New interior with door panels, headliner, seats, carpet and door handles • New rubber seals • New front windshield and chrome trim • Restored gas tank • New shocks • New brake lines, ball joints, steering box, master cylinder, fuel lines, fuel filter, • New rear view mirror • New front speaker (Stereo is original and is hit and miss) • New front window latches • New window washer kit • New retractable seat belts The vehicle runs and drives nicely and was just serviced with fresh fluids, oil screen, and timing and points adjusted along with carb adjusted.
