This Karmann Ghia Cabriolet is a European version with instrument in kilometres, from Germany. In 1972, only 2909 convertibles were produced and most of them were for the US market.

It was imported by an enthusiast in Italy in 2006 and had been restored before import, since then it has only received some maintenance work.

The chassis is very sound and the car still looks very good.

Painting in ‘Kasan Red’ colour, polished but with some flaws and some retouching due to age (as shown in photos).

The original external vinyl fabric soft top has no tears, it is soft, and opens and closes smoothly. The soft top cover is new.

Well-preserved brown interior, with no tears.

Recently, the brakes were overhauled including new flexible hoses, and also suspension and shock absorbers were checked or replaced.

A new, original Pierburg petrol pump was recently installed.

The car starts immediately, the gearbox works well and the engine has a rich sound. Smooth and comfortable driving experience.

The car is a direct purchase from the previous owner and is offered without any technical inspection.

The test with feeler gauge showed good values and no relevant accidents were highlighted.

Some videos of the car, driving and engine are available: please contact Catawiki.

Please note: monobloc rotation engine made in Mexico.

Bidders are welcome to view and test the vehicle. It is located in Quarrata 51039, PT, Italy. Please contact Catawiki for an appointment.
