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.
