Sometimes referred to as the “most beautiful Volkswagen ever,” the Karmann Ghia body is a triumph of the automotive stylist’s art, because underneath its sexy curves is nothing more exotic than a widened floorpan and running gear from the humble Beetle.

By the mid-1950s, the German economy was recovering. Mercedes-Benz developed the 300SL Gullwing, and Porsche had a hit in America with the 356 Speedster. Volkswagen looked for a way to move upmarket.

The ‘Beetle in a sports coat’ – as it has been dubbed – was initially an unofficial Volkswagen. The idea for a sexier Beetle, and what would become Volkswagen’s second model line, came from long-time VW coachbuilder Wilhelm Karmann. In early 1953 he contracted Luigi Segre of Italian styling house Carrozzeria Ghia, to design a sporty body to fit the Beetle chassis. The original idea was for a convertible but Ghia drew a coupe.

The prototype was finished by October ’53 and shown to a delighted Karmann who then presented it to a, no doubt, surprised Volkswagen managing director Heinrich Nordhoff in a back room at the Paris Auto Salon. The normally conservative Nordhoff nevertheless gave it the green light and the Type 14 Karmann-Ghia went into production in 1955.

The Karmann Ghia is pretty enough to capture anyone’s attention — and its reliability and aftermarket support are only icing on a gorgeous, velvety cake. It’s a heavenly combination.

Karmann Ghia’s are stunning and now are very collectable.

SPEC INCLUDES : Metro Front Seat Conversion And Full Interior Retrim, Sports Exhaust, Fire extinguisher.

ABSOLUTE STUNNING Condition Inside And Out.

Great Addition to anybody’s collection, these Karmann Ghia’s are now rocketing in price and becoming very collectable !!
