Karmann Ghia coupe 1971. Calafornia import, party trick!
1971 VW Karmann Ghia Coupe-Finished in a deep shine piano Black. This is a California import car so as a result has no rust issues. The paintwork is very good and the polished Black has a deep rich shine to it. The new highly polished BRM alloys are in first class condition and are shod with fairly new 15 inch Yokahama Radials, which have seen little use. The chrome-work is very good. With the distinctive American style towel rail bumpers. Most if not all weather seals appear new. The interior has been re-trimmed in America, and remains in very good order. There is a period "Banjo" steering wheel, and ally T-bar shifter. Behind the rear seat once folded down, it houses a speaker system linked to a new Kenwood stereo system in the glove box. The car is Uk registered, and mot’d, ready to go. It drives very well. The engine performs well and starts first time. The engine bay is very clean. There are several aftermarket goodies, including Chrome tin ware, polished 009 distributor, Chrome fan housing etc. There has been an upgrade from the standard dynamo to an alternator. There are two new batteries under the rear seat instead of the normal one. This gives separate power to a new hydraulic suspension system. with a new adjustable front beam and new shocks, this Karmann can be adjusted from the flick of a switch in the car or via remote control. So can go from the showground ground hugging slammed look through to normal driving ride height through to raised front or rear. All fully adjustable at the push of a button. This system has recently been fitted by a known professional at a cost of £3000, and makes a great fun at the shows. This coupe was photographed for the cover of Karmann club magazine on its 60th anniversary edition.
