This is a 1969 Karmann Ghi, 4 spee, with an early 1970's 1600 cc engine .The odometer reads 1174, clearly the odometer has been flipped . So I'm assuming it is 117,43, could it be 217430 ? I do not know .The previous owner put a lot of time and good amount of money to bring the car up to where it is now .Some of the features on this Ghia are :
  • 8 spoke rims, good rubber with knock offs ( left rear tire only holds air for a wee, I have not looked into why )
  • Bug packshifte, nice tight shift linkage
  • add on VDO gauges with an aftermarket working tachometer
  • newer calipers / rotors / pads : brakes work excellent and car stops straight
  • replacement aftermarket gas tank
  • new aftermarket wiring harness
  • Webber progressive carburetor
  • Clean 1600 engine with upgraded Alternator
  • painted dash vs wood paneling
  • good nose ridge
  • workable body
  • presentable interior with newer carpet and clean front seats
front end /steering is good : drives straight and does not dance when you hit arough part of road
What this Ghia needs :
  • Body work on this car was not professionally done and is not finished
  • Paint is anamateur job but it looks good from 10-15 fee, I do have the extra paint he used on car.
  • There are still areas onthe body that require repair : nose grilles:leftrocker:lower left door:decklid lip: & misc areas
  • Front pan is good : the rear has been patched and still shows some rust holes
  • Rear seat cover has some tears
  • decklid has a clearance issue with the Webber Carb
Engine needs a differentdistributor as the 009 has a bog / flat spot down low or abetter Tech to tune it
Overall this is basically an almost complete running car ready for the next owner to take itto the next level.....or simply get the timing right to work out the flat spot in the lower rpm's .I sayalmost complete as It has no wiper, nose emble, side trim and whatever else it could be missing ....I think I have the side emblem and side trim for this ca, If I find i, It will go with the Ghia.
Videos :
**** I say in this video " pans are in great shap, 2nd video shows back pans have holes *********** **. ********* :
***Start up and motor running : Gas gauge and clock do not work ******
If you are wondering what the cloth in deck lid assembly is : the previous owner put it there due to a clearance issue with the Webber carb . When i bought this car I drove it an hour home on the freeway with no issues . If you know Ghia', you know what your looking at . I just started collecting these cars two years ag, I have 10 air-cooled Vw's now and need to makesome room for winter . Please only serious buyer, please call / text / email with any questions ( 239.246.3711 ). I do not answer calls from 9-5:30 pm so please leave avoicemail and I will call you back promptly . I would be happy to show you photos of any area you wish to se, I am not a Vw / Air Cooled expert . I do not sell cars on the sid, , this is the 1st car I have listed for sale on ebay . Just need to make some room ....after driving i, I had second thoughts about selling it ....it needs a distributor swap or a bettermechanic to set the timing .....car holds the road nice . So good luck with the auction !.....and its a 1969 !! no wood dash on this one , last year of the smaller lamps and early bumpers and IRS rear !!!!
