Classic Car Overview

1970 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Convertible The first Karmann-Ghia was introduced in Europe in 1955 and arrived in America as a coupe in 1956. The convertible soon followed in 1958. It cost $300 to $400 more than the coupe, but was sportier to convertible-loving Americans, for whom it initially was built. The slick little car was sold through 1974. Sales totaled an impressive 387,975 cars. And it could have lasted several years longer, except that the Karmann coach works of West Germany needed more space to build Volkswagens new Scirocco coupe, which lacked the Karmann-Ghias flair. This Deep Blue Ghia for consignments showing signs of needing some TLC. Patina paint, interior surfaces, and engine compartment. Parts are absent in some areas (door panels) and some sag is present on the headliner of the convertible top. The car runs nicely and shifts smoothly. Exterior This is a repaint in a Deep Blue covering the original Olympic Blue poly. Paint is in good condition but with some dirt inclusions underneath the repaint. All chrome, and brite work is in good condition. The dual chromed moldings below the belt line are original and in good condition. Wide white sidewall tires are all around. US specified all red large taillights and wrap around turn signals sit above nicely rounded bumpers. We were unable to put the top down. Interior Black vinyl buckets appear in good condition. No rips or tears. The wood dash with all original gauges, is fronted by the original steering wheel. A typical VW shift lever is between the buckets. A small rear seat is available and flips down for extra space. Headliner on the convertible top is sagging. A panel on the passenger door is missing. Door handles stick sometimes and are in need of lubrication. Drivetrain What appears to be an original engine configuration is nestled into the rear of the car. Patina is seen as well as rust around the battery area. The car starts, but runs a bit rough, which may be from sitting unused for a while. Undercarriage Surface rust, and invasive rust spots, particularly in the front portion of the undercarriage in front of the floorpans is seen. Otherwise undercarriage is unremarkable. Unfortunately, not a lot is known about any history, or actual issues other than what can be visualized with regards to this car. This writer has tried his best to be honest, and forthright as to what is seen and experienced while driving this car. Make a trek to Classic Auto Mall and check it out for those interested.
