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.
