Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1967 (E) Orange
The Karmann Ghia was originally launched at the Paris Motor Show in October 1953 as a styling concept by Ghia of Turin and went in to production in 1955 where the Type 14 as it was known, was hand-built by Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany using the same VW mechanicals as the VW Beetle Cabriolet which they were already producing for Volkswagen. The Type 14 exceeded all expectations and more than 10,000 were sold in the first year and 445,238 were built between 1955 and 1974.
This lovely original RHD Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Coupe was originally supplied new in Namibia in 1967 and remained there until being imported to the UK in 2006. It is finished in its original colour scheme of Orange with a White roof, Beige trim, Black carpets, 15" Steel wheels with Chrome hub caps and it is fitted with a 1.9 Litre water cooled Engine and 4 Speed Manual Gearbox.
The car was actually sold by us in 2012 to the current owners who have in the last couple of years spent £000's on the car restoring it including a high quality repaint with all new rubber seals, complete new interior trim in Beige with White piping including door cards, new carpets, fitted a heater, heated rear windscreen, overhauled the brakes and much more.
As a result of these works, the car is in absolutely fantastic condition throughout with no rust or corrosion anywhere (being from South Africa) and it really does drives beautifully.
This is a very rare car being RHD and they are rapidly appreciating in value.
