    Thread: 1971 VW Karmann Ghia Coupe - $6900

      1600cc dual port engine - rebuilt in 2001. German block.
      Automatic Stick - works flawlessly - rebuilt in 2000
      Repainted factory blue in 2000 and still in great condition
      Front seats reupholstered
      Rear seats are factory original leather and in great condition
      44K miles on odometer. I’m almost positive it has 244K.
      Carburetor recently rebuilt
      Full engine tune up in 2012
      Zero rust on the body and floor pans
      Heater boxes blow incredibly hot
      Front and side vents work perfectly
      All electrical componets in great condition
      Entirely original and stock except for new radio and speakers
      Covered when parked and meticulously cared for its entire life

      This car was purchased by my grandfather and given to my father. He drove it around Lake Arrowhead, CA for 40 years before he passed away last year. I wish I could keep it but I don’t have the space or the willingness to care for it properly. We have 40 years of receipts to document everything done to the car. Everything in this car works as it did from the factory unless listed below. It cruises down the highway at 70 mph straight and smooth.

      A few minor negatives: 1 square inch of cracked/missing paint on the front left fender. Normal wear on the interior and the carpet, but looks great for a 40 year old car. 2'' square rust spot near the battery caused by an old battery leak .

      I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this car that we did. People still talk about my dad and the Karmann Ghia, and everybody that sees this car gets excited and wants to go for a ride in it.

      Please email me for pictures, questions or if you would like to set up a test drive!

      What seems to be the problem lately that people can't seem to post pics straight to here anymore?

      The site wouldn't let me directly paste a picture and wanted a URL, so I had to put in a link to photo bucket. Anyway, here's a picture of the Ghia for sale:
