1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Affordable for everyone, it quickly became known as the “secretary’s Porsche.” The Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Beetle with styling by Italy’s Carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built bodywork by German coach building house Karmann. Sellers have owned this beauty for 5 years and have decided it’s time to explore the country with a fifth wheel trailer.

This fantastic color blue accented with the white rallye stripe really suits the racy personality of the Karmann Ghia. Some may even ask you if this is an early AC Cobra. Tinted windows and great looking Porsche polished alloy wheels look a thousand bucks and complement the car in spectacular fashion. Italian seamless curves in a one piece body save for doors and hoods and that thin roofline make for a timeless look that only improves with age.

Inside we have a recently replaced pan, new carpet, two-tone leather seats with piping and matching door panels look sharp in combination with the exterior. Custom steering wheel is just the right size and has just the right grip and feel. Gauges are simple and easy to read, and a new stereo unit was recently added.

The engine is the original 1600cc which has some nice chrome additions to the powerplant. The engine is matted to a fun-to-drive 4 speed manual transmission. Runs great and shifts smooth with plenty of power. Aftermarket updates include performance carbs and exhaust giving it just the right rumble with no reverb on the highway.
