Karmann Ghia Cabrio
Een Italiaanse look en Duitse techniek versmelten met elkaar in de Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Stijl en elegantie gecombineerd met betrouwbare techniek . Ook Patrick viel voor de lijnvoering van de Karmann Ghia en mag zich nu jaren later eigenaar noemen van een imposante collectie auto's en miniaturen. Verzamelaar en onderzoeker noemt hij zichzelf en als ware kenner van het model een wandelende encyclopedie. In de jaren vijftig was de Karmann Ghia een imagebuilder voor Volkswagen. Naast de Kever en de spijlbus lanceerden VW een elegante sportcoupe en in 1958 voor het eerst een cabriolet op basis van dit model. Door de chassisconstructie was het voor individuele carrosseriebouwers ook mogelijk om op basis hiervan een eigen carrosserie te maken. Als echte verzamelaar heeft Patrick zich dan ook gefocust op de eerste "lowights" en de speciale uitvoeringen. Zijn collectie auto's van bijzondere Ghia's, wordt aangevuld met een indrukwekkende verzameling miniaturen en andere model gerelateerde verzamelobjecten. Hier is geen twijfel mogelijk, dit is een echte liefhebber die zich volledig verdiept heeft in dit model! Lekker toeren en uitwaaien met de 58-er Lowlight Cabriolet. Vol met accessoires en kenmerkende stijlelementen van de eerste serie Karmann Ghia's. De koplampen net iets lager dan de latere versies geven hem de bijnaam Lowlight. In grote lijnen hetzelfde als zijn opvolgers, maar toch net op alle punten even iets anders en heel verfijnd. Kenmerkende details welke verraden dat een dergelijke auto nog handgebouwd is bij een carrosseriebouwer. Patrick rijd graag in de auto waar hij een heuse jacht op heeft gemaakt om hem in bezit te krijgen. Juist deze uitvoering en voorzien van een originele Okrasa opvoerset maken het een begerenswaardige auto voor een verzamelaar als Patrick. Het gevoel , de passie, ruimte en de wind door de haren geven direct contact met de omgeving. Dak open en uitwaaien maar! Wind en uitwaaien zijn zeker toepasselijk als je hoort hoe deze, van oorsprong nieuw in Amerika geleverde VW naar Nederland is gekomen. Een lange reis waarbij de auto een orkaan heeft getrotseerd. Eenmaal gearriveerd in Nederland wachtte deze cabriolet een warm welkom in de collectie van Patrick. Voor veel liefhebbers van mooi design en de betrouwbare Volkswagen techniek heeft de Karmann Ghia een speciale betekenis. Kijk mee wat Patrick in vervoering bracht en wat resulteerde in een bijzonder mooie collectie. Dennis Rietveld





1967 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible Test Drive in Sonoma CA
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1967-vw-karmann-ghia-convertible/ to see this cool classic 1967 VW Karmann Ghia convertible for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California. Join us for a little test drive in this super solid, clean vintage Karmann Ghia in excellent shape. Body looks great and the new paint has a nice, deep shine. Excellent trim and chrome with lots of new rubber, crisp, clear windshield, excellent tires and brakes. Engine in excellent condition, rebuilt less than 10k miles ago with dual carburetors and runs like a champ. Shifting is tight and smooth as well. The interior still has some original patina'd areas like the original square weave rugs, giving it a nice vintage feel. Otherwise the front seats and panels have been replaced along with the headliner and newer cloth top and boot cover. The floors and rockers are super solid. Everything is in great working order. We are currently replacing the fuel sender so that will be completed at time of shipping. Important to note that 1967 is a low production year making it pretty rare since only 4,100 were built. Check out the link above for full details, pricing info and detailed photo gallery. Then give me a call with your best offer.

Join us on a test drive to the Valley of the Moon Winery in this cool classic 1969 Karmann Ghia convertible. Stored inside family warehouse since 1987. Prior to entering it's 26 year rest it had been repainted and a new top was installed. I believe that the 93k miles showing are likely correct yet cannot be sure. All mechanical systems recently gone through to make the car a reliable, long-distance or daily driver. New tires also installed. Strong compression, excellent shifting and acceleration; brakes, steering all in full working order. Original equipment in correct working order including the clock. Original Sapphire X radio does not turn on but we will see if this can be remedied prior to sale. Original white interior was discolored after 45 years so we replaced the front and rear seat covers and door panels. Carpet is original. This is a good driver-quality, mostly original California car with plenty of appeal and room to improve if someone so desires. Or just enjoy exactly as-is.
