Classic Car Overview

Collectible Motorcar of Atlanta is truly proud to offer this super clean and beautiful 1974 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia in a slick metallic silver paint job over black interior. We are super excited about this Karmann Ghia in particular, not only because of the clean paint and body, but also because of the documentation to prove that this car was owned by 2 people since new previously to our consignor. Thats right, this is a 3 owner Karmann Ghia since it was sold from the dealership. To be exact, this Ghia was sold by Gene Thompson Motors in Richmond Indiana. The original owner, Rose Clark, worked at the Richmond State Hospital (hospital for the mentally ill) when she purchased the vehicle. At that time employees had the option of living on grounds of the hospital in small apartments for low rent. For many years she lived and worked in the same location, so these were very easy years for the Ghia. In front of the owners manual is the original owners card with her name and address. She kept the Ghia until she passed away, and then it was auctioned and sold to our consignor. Green was the original color when little miss Rose would drive the Ghia around the hospital campus, and the consignor states that the car has since been repainted and restored in 2004. A truly beautiful metal patch was added to the back of the Ghia, reading Bundesrepublick Deutchland which is an unofficial abbreviation for the Federal Republic of Germany. There is plenty of documentation to back this statement, including but not limited to tons of receipts, history outlines, original warranty voucher, vehicle identification card, copy of original Indiana title, and pictures that follow the restoration. With this Karmann Ghia being the nicest that we at Collectible Motorcar have ever seen, the documentation that comes along with it is nothing short of on par. The interior is just as nice as the exterior, and includes a few small tasteful upgrades that sway it away from factory, but nothing arrogant. An upgraded JVC head unit with Kenwood speakers allow for the driver to listen to some tunes while cruising along, and 2 auxiliary gauges allow for readout of your RPMs and fuel level. The 1600cc motor can be found removed from the Ghia in one of the photos in the gallery, and the consignor stated that the motor was rebuilt and refreshed in 04 as well. After driving this car, we definitely believe it and believe whoever did the heart transplant must work on classic Volkswagens in his sleep. Not only does the motor sound and run as it should, the gearbox shifts like butter as well. The brakes are in line with the quality of the rest of the car as well, with disc brakes on all four corners that make stopping a breeze. Gripping the road and surrounding the 8-spoke, 4-lug mini lite style wheels are 15 inch Kumho Ectsa tires which looks correct. Dual exhausts which leave in the rear provide a smooth and soothing sound of the engine, and adds a nice touch to the look of the Ghia.
