Volkswagen made this sweet 1968 Karmann Ghia for fun road trips. The 1.6L aircooled 4 cylinder motor and 4 speed manual transmission. A custom burgundy paint job with old school pinstripe will make this car stand out in any parking lot. A tan interior is the perfect accent color for this car. The AM/FM/CD radio lets the tunes play while you cruise down the road. Custom wheels and radial tires give this Karmann Ghia exactly what it needs.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.

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.

this great barn find - a 1971 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible sold by Sunset
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.

The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a sports car marketed in both 2+2 coupe
(1955--1974) and convertible (1957--1974) body styles by Volkswagen. The
Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle)
with styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built
bodywork by the German coach-builder Karmann.
The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Type 14. Volkswagen later
introduced a variant in 1961, the Type 34, featuring angular bodywork and
based on the newly introduced Type 3 platform.
Production doubled soon after its introduction, becoming the car most
imported into the U.S. American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague
included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed
More than 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's
production life -- not including the Type 34 variant. Karmann Brazil
produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975.
