After producing the people’s car for so many years VW had to improve their image and the Karmann Ghia was the solution.
Long noted for its exterior styling, the Karmann Ghia was designed with input from numerous individuals at Carrozzeria Ghia and was strongly influenced by Virgil Exner’s work, though all of its designers passed without a definitive individual attribution of the styling ever made.
The production ended in 1973, so this 1971 example was amongst the last derivative before the ghastly rubber bumpers were fitted on the final cars.
She lived in the USA until 1998 and then was bought and imported by a Brit whilst he was on his holiday using her for a couple of weeks instead of a boring Hertz hire car!
Finished in rare Willow green with black leather interior she escaped the rust issues affecting European cars.
She has only had light restoration whilst in the UK and was painted over 20 years ago but still in superb condition today, maintained well by the last owner for 12 years.
On the road she impresses with a solid reliable feel only a VW can provide.
