Description for Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1969

The market for cool VWs is heating up. So when you can get your hands on a 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia that has been restored to look great on the outside, custom on the inside, and reliable in the engine bay, then you've got a fleeting opportunity at a stellar classic for an affordable price.
This coupe was carefully upgraded and updated. The gold paint has a terrific luster that really brings out the Italian design. You can clearly see how the front fender line cuts into the top of the door, and the rear one sharply invades the bottom. This is the kind of detail we expect from the masters at Ghia. And it's this same shine that makes the teardrop roofline look fast even standing still. And the gold isn't the only precious metal color. The silver trim coordinates nicely with the upgraded bumpers and Hurst-style wheels. The total impression is a coupe that someone took the time to get it looking right.
And the careful customization also extends to the interior. The seating is a harmonized setup were the bold red vinyl and the deep black piping are combined nicely on the comfy cloth inserts. This coordinates with the parcel shelf and side paneling to create a nice uniform atmosphere. Plus, there are all the right thoughtful touches like new carpeting, billet window cranks, and cup holders. The experience for the driver has all the right upgrades, too. You'll slip behind a classic-style steering wheel, and it gives you a clear view to the new dash full of classic-style VDO gauges. Below that is the addition of a tach (a great complement to the manual transmission) and a cool aircraft-style clock.
The engine and transmission were part of an upgrade when the car was restored in 2010. And just like the interior and exterior, the investment was all about getting the car looking correct with just the right improvements in place. So you have a 1600cc motor that looks correct, right down to the air intake and decals. But then you also have pieces like the EMPI carburetor, large capacity oil filter, and Optima red top battery for added reliability to this already legendary motor. That means you can confidently get the most out of the flat-four as you take full control with the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, out on the road, there are more great upgrades like the grip of modern tires and front disc brakes. It gives you the kind of control that makes this a fantastic driving classic.
Complete with service manuals, this is that well-presented classic coupe that will make people think you paid at least twice as much. So if you're looking for an affordable head-turner, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
