The hardiness of a Beetle mixed with the flair of an Italian design - This 1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is the kind of vehicle that has always been appealing. And there have been solid investments all around this coupe to make sure that you will enjoy driving and showing this stylish VW.
The Karmann Ghia looks like a million bucks. VW even promoted it as the Italian sports car for the common man. The graceful lines, the muscular curved rear fenders, and the slender pillars that .....
make the roof almost look like it's floating - they're all masterstrokes of '60s design. This one has been freshened more recently. The red paint is a new application within the last three years. It's a robust and glossy red that like to highlight the well-built feeling that comes from a classic German car. And the red gives this a nice hint of sportiness. And that's continued with the lowered stance and clean/classic VW wheels that remind us of a Porsche.
Just like the exterior, the interior has a stylish and subtly upgraded feeling that showcases the best of VW DNA. The tartan inserts in the seats remind us of the Golf GTI and crisp VDO readouts are a Volkswagen tradition. But what we like best is how this clean and comfy interior likes to be a true cruiser. You have better driving features like an upgraded wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, and readouts for the tach and power are neatly placed under the dash. And an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input is hidden away in the dash to give you upgraded driving music.
When you check out the engine bay out back, the air-cooled flat-four should be instantly recognizable to VW fans. This is a 1600cc unit which is larger than what was offered that year, and we were told it was also rebuilt later in life. Today it looks attractive, maintained, and strong. The experience behind the wheel is all smiles thanks to the feeling and control of the four-speed manual that makes the most out of the motor. And there are nice driver upgrades like modern touring tires, KYB shocks, and front disc brakes.
There is an irresistible feeling about a cool classic style and the right investment for a fun driver. It's why you know you need this Karmann Ghia in your garage. Call today!!!
