vehicle overview

1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. This stunning 1971 example was imported from USA in 2013 as a solid and mostly complete car that had been taken off the road in 1985 by its first and allegedly only owner. Upon arrival on our shores the car was subject to a complete nut and bolt restoration by Greyhound Cars in Wolverhampton. The body was stripped to its bare bones and what little rust that was found was attended to before the car was repainted in the resplendent silver it is presented in today. Laid up in 1985 by the previous US owner due to engine problems a new engine was necessary and the decision was made to fit a new 1600cc engine in to the car. At the same time the gearbox was refurbished and the two were eventually mated back together. Similarly the running gear of the car was subject to a comprehensive refurbishment throughout to ensure that the car stops and handles as well as the day it left the factory. Inside, the car was subject to a complete re-trim including a new dashboard, period radio with modern internals and wood rimmed steering wheel along with fitment of new carpets throughout. Costing over £15,000 in restoration bills, the car comes complete with photographic documentation of the restoration process along with various invoices pertaining to the restoration and a record maintenance book stamped up until 1985 when the car was first taken of the road. This gorgeous car has covered a mere 300 miles since its restoration and as such is now ready to be enjoyed in new hands for many more miles to come. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and we know you won't be disappointed. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery and shipping can be arranged.
