The seller acquired the car in 2020 and commenced with cosmetic and mechanical modifications in September 2021 that included refinishing the body, refurbishment of the interior, and the installation of dual Weber carburetors and an electric heating system. Additional work included the replacement of the steering box, brakes, and seals. This Karmann Ghia is now offered with the removed factory exhaust manifolds, the factory rear license plate holder, and a clean California title in the sellers name.The Karmann-built body was repainted under current ownership in black and features new weatherstripping along with contrasting silver-finished headlamp and taillight bezels, grilles, windshield wipers, outside mirrors, and door handles. Modifications include front turn signal lamps that are repositioned behind the front grilles, an illuminated aftermarket rear license plate holder, and bodywork to cover the mounting points of the removed bumpers. The factory license plate holder is included in the sale.Polished 15 eight-spoke EMPI GT8 wheels are wrapped in 135-series Nankang N-803 tires up front and 165/80 Signet SB-802 rear tires out back.
