1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Vehicle Description

The VW Karmann Ghia, built between 1955 to 1974 Mint Motorcars is pleased to present this rarely seen 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia that is finished in very sought after Amber exterior.

This VW is equipped with an air-cooled 1192cc flat four-cylinder engine (#1304869) with a single Solex 28 PICT Carburetor backed by a four-speed Manual Transmission. The engine bay is nicely detailed and the car is still powered by an original six-volt electrical system. This Ghia's ride is steadied by independent torsion-bar suspension on all four wheels and stabilizer bars and hydraulic Front and Rear Drum Brakes.


The exterior is painted in Amber (Orange) and accented by beautiful New Condition tires, VW moon wheel covers, chrome bumpers, moldings, emblems and center caps – all of which are in excellent condition. The car's windows are clear, crack-free and pristine. All of the body panels are solid and straight and are gorgeous.


Sporty front contoured bucket seats that are adjustable to give the driver full stretch and a rear bench seat that folds down for more space.

In contrast to the Beetle's machine-welded body with bolt-on fenders, the Karmann Ghia's body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped, and smoothed with English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end manufacturers, resulting in the Karmann Ghia's higher price.
