fantastic original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for sale by Sunset Classics in
This unique example has only 20k original miles and it still retains the
original factory tires from 1960! The interior is original with the
exception of new carpet, and the little Karmann Ghia still sports its
original 36 hpr engine.
Stepping into this Karmann Ghia is like stepping into a time machine. The
ivory knobs and the ornamental chrome trim is straight out of the '50s (and
1960 of course). The "whirr" of the engine paints a smile on anyone's face
who is lucky enough to hear it. You can be proud driving this beauty no
matter what your destination.
The paint is not original but the paprika red and white color scheme is.
The floor pans look to be original and they are in good shape. At some
point there was some body work done to the panels just before the rear
wheels. The trunk is nice and the rear quarter panels look to be original
and they are in great shape. As you can see from the photos there is some
rust around the headlights and in front of the passenger side rear wheel.
But the paint and car look great overall, and these areas could be touched
up if desired.
The story history of this cute little car is both interesting and
extraordinary - check out the full story at the link above as well as
detailed photo gallery and more video. Then give me a call to claim her for

First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is

VW Karmann Ghia 1974
The Type 14 debuted at the October 1953 Paris Auto Show as a styling
concept created for Ghia by Luigi Segre.
In the early 1950s, Volkswagen was producing its economy car, the Type 1
(Beetle). With an increase in post-war standards of living, executives at
Volkswagen proposed adding a halo car to its model range, contracting with
German coachbuilder Karmann for its manufacture. Karmann in turn contracted
the Italian firm Ghia, who adapted styling themes previously explored for
Chrysler and Studebaker to a Beetle floorpan widened by 12 in (300 mm).
In contrast to the Beetle's machine welded-body with bolt-on fenders, the
Karmann Ghia's body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped and smoothed with
English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end
manufacturers -- and resulting in the Karmann Ghia's higher price.
The design and prototype were well received by Volkswagen executives, and
in August 1955 the first Type 14 was manufactured in Osnabrück, Germany.
Public reaction to the Type 14 exceeded expectations, with over 10,000 sold
in the first year.

The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a
true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14's engine displacement
grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a
displacement of 1584 cc, producing 60 hp (45 kW).
In August 1957, Volkswagen introduced a convertible version of the Karmann
Ghia. Exterior changes in 1961 included wider and finned front grilles,
taller and more rounded rear taillights and headlights relocated to a
higher position -- with previous models and their lower headlight placement
called lowlights. The Italian designer Sergio Sartorelli, designer of
Type 34, oversaw the various restylings of Type 14.
In 1970, larger taillights integrated the reversing lights and larger
wrap-around turn signals. Still larger and wider taillights increased side
visibility and at the same time large square-section bumpers replaced the
smooth round originals. For the USA model only, 1973 modifications mandated
by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) included
energy-absorbing bumpers. A carpeted package shelf replaced the rear seat.
