Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Code: CU0009

  • The Karmann Ghia Coupe is the sporty version of the Volkswagen with a 2 + 2 body and a flat-fired Boxer engine from 1200cc to 1600cc. The production of the car in a coupe or cabriolet began in 1961 with the designs of the German engineer Karmann who was the designer of the Ghia Design Office.
  • The car sold more than 400,000 units to date and is considered a very successful sports version of VW that has undergone many variations and upgrades. The 1978 American Edition market included a Boxer 1600cc automatic transmission.
  • The specific car you see is the 1967 engine with a Boxer air-cooled 1600cc, 60 hp power, front disc brakes, rear drum and 12 volt electric system. It was completely upgraded by the Technical Department of the Museum according to the original technical specifications of the manufacturer. In addition, the interior has upholstery of high quality leather, which was customary in its time only with a special order. So after converting it from a closed coupe it became cabrio.
