If you’ve scoured for a classic Volkswagen to buy that is not a Beetle, come on down to MotoeXotica Classic Cars to check out this 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. It was a sports car marketed in 2+2 coupe (1955–1974) and convertible (1957–1974) body styles. The Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle) with styling by Italy's Carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built bodywork by German coachbuilding house, Karmann.
This Ghia comes from a previous owner of 37 years! Copy of the 1981 Florida title and original manual is included.
Finished in Red, this mostly original example was built in December 1970 in Osnabruck, West Germany. The car’s paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The car’s glass panels are clear and intact and includes a rear defroster and swing-out rear quarter windows, while the lights are haze-free and look good.
The car’s bodywork is straight, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the battery appears new. The chrome, bladed bumpers shine brilliantly and this car rides on Atlas whitewall tires. Each tire is mounted on 15-inch painted steel wheels with vented center caps and beauty rings.
Out back is the original USA-only market dual port 1.6L air-cooled flat four-cylinder engine #AE334948 producing 60HP, flat four-cylinder engine linked to a four-speed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include front disc brakes.
Inside, the car’s black interior is in overall great shape. The black front buckets and rear fold-down rear seats are in excellent condition while the complementing carpet is in satisfactory shape. The contrasting grayish headliner looks great, as does the factory, two-spoke steering wheel but the horn is inoperable. The black instrument panel with VDO gauges is in very good order while the inner door panels are in satisfactory shape. Rounding out the interior are the floor-mounted shifter and a Kenwood AM/FM stereo with CD player.
The design and prototype were well received by Volkswagen executives, and the Type 14 debuted at the October 1953 Paris Auto Show as a styling concept “by Ghia.” In August 1955 the first Type 14 was manufactured in Osnabrück, Germany. Public reaction to the Type 14 exceeded expectations, and more than 10,000 were sold in the first year.
In contrast to the Beetle's machine-welded body with bolt-on fenders, the Karmann Ghia's body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped, and smoothed with English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end manufacturers, resulting in the Karmann Ghia's higher price.
The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14’s engine displacement grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a displacement of 1584 cc.
Production doubled soon after the Karmann Ghia's introduction, becoming the car most imported into the U.S.
In August 1957, Volkswagen introduced a convertible version of the Karmann Ghia. Exterior changes in 1961 included wider and finned front grilles, taller and more rounded rear taillights and headlights relocated to a higher position – with previous models and their lower headlight placement called lowlights. The Italian designer Sergio Sartorelli, designer of Type 34, oversaw the various re-stylings of Type 14.
In 1970, larger taillights integrated the reversing lights and larger wrap-around turn signals. Still larger and wider taillights increased side visibility.
Competition to this Ghia in 1971 include Buick’s captively imported Opel GT Coupe, Chevrolet’s Vega hatchback, Dodge’s Colt coupe, Ford’s Pinto hatchback, Honda’s Civic hatchback, Mazda’s 1000, Mercury’s Bobcat hatchback, Pontiac’s Astre hatchback and Toyota’s Corolla Coupe.
Documentation includes the original owner’s manual plus various maintenance receipts and other documents. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this classic VW coupe before someone else puts in their garage.
