1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

This rare 1964 Baja Karmann Ghia was built in the late 70's and still retains a ton of the period correct equipment and charm that you would expect from a vintage race build. I was informed by the previous owner that a family friend built it for competition and ran it in the 1979 and 1981 Baja 1000. It still retains most of the original race equipment (full tube chassis including roll cage that ties into front and rear sub frames, nder chassis skid plate, uspension etc) but has since had a more streetable motor installed (1,600 dual port) and new seats and harnesses within the last year. It is a great grocery getter/show car and receives a LOT of looks and smiles wherever it goes. Most people (including myself) have never seen another one. I used it as my daily driver during car week this summer in Monterey and it must have had 200 pictures taken of it each day. Where ever the car is, here are people standing around it or photographing it.
Here are some of the new items installed on the car within the last 2 years. . .
New Seats/harnesses, ail light lenses, oll bar padding, C Highlight front auxiliary headlamps, indshield, ront and rear windshield rubber, fire extinguisher, omplete front and rear brake system (hoses, hoes, aster and slave cylinders), uel pump, owden tube, hift bushings, lectric choke mechanism, uel lines, ynthetic oil change, nterior matte black DTM and exterior (matte Huggar Orange) paint.
This Ghia just won Best In Show Off Road Vehicle at a the prestigious Bugorama air cooled VW show in Sacramento CA and has been recently featured in Yahoo Cars, oldRide, alopnik, otortrend, ooniverse and more... The car has lived it's entire life in CA and is rust free.
