This cute little Ghia has lived in a barn for the past 24 years! It is happy to be in my garage with other good VW company, but I already have a yellow Ghia Convertible so this one is up for sale. The long-time owner said he took the car out every year to keep things fresh. When I looked at the car he admitted it had been 3 years since it had been driven. The barn was on a dirt road way out in the Minnesota prairie. It was a fun find. Convertible Karmann Ghias are definitely one of my favorite barn finds for a classic car.

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

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

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

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.
VW Karmann Ghia Cabriolet
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.
