To capitalize on the Beetle's popularity, Volkswagen introduced the sporty Karmann Ghia at the 1953 Paris Auto Show. With a rear-mounted 4 cylinder and many of the Beetle's proven mechanicals, the car was economical and durable. The real attraction was the style of the bodywork by the Italian outfit, Ghia, and the renowned coachwork of Karmann. The unique styling turns heads today. With easy to find parts and a massive community, these vehicles are growing in popularity every day.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this very nice 1973 Karmann Ghia convertible for your consideration. Finished in what appears to be Carmine Red, this car looks very fresh from what appears to be a selective restoration. The paint quality is very good overall, as is the excellent chrome and rubber trim. There is a slight bit of paint cracks on the rear engine compartment cover. The glass is in great shape and the convertible top is new and fits well. The exterior is accented by the factory chrome hubcaps that look fantastic! Likewise, the interior is very nice. The seats are in good shape with good padding and there are no rear seats. The dash is crack free and the controls appear to be fully functional. The steering wheel has some cracks in it. The expensive, Ghia produced body was handmade in Italy and is very straight, free of dents and dings.
The 1600cc flat four engine sounds healthy and it the 4-speed manual shifts well. While only making 60hp, this car isn't as slow as you'd imagine and the engine is well suited to the relaxed and comfortable demeanor. It accelerates, brakes, and turns well. The car came to us from North Carolina and is free of rot that's common on northern cars. This is a well sorted car that loves to be driven and looks good while doing it!
