AUCTION RESULTS: Sold at a price of $13,200

Est. 57bhp, 1,585 cc horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine, four-speed manual transmission in rear transaxle, independent front suspension with transverse torsion bars and upper and lower trailing arms, independent rear suspension with semi-trailing arms and torsion bars, and hydraulic front disc and rear drum brakes. Wheelbase: 94.5"

The 1970 Karmann-Ghia offered here is a very appealing late-production convertible that was recently treated to a professional mechanical and cosmetic restoration. A red exterior finish, white interior, woodgrain dash and black convertible top complement its distinctive and sporting bodywork. The car includes U.S.-specification bumpers complete with override bars, as well as original-type ventilated steel wheels with bright hubcaps and whitewall tires. Mechanically, a fresh and correct VW crate motor offers increased performance with an upgraded dual-carburetor induction system.

As described by automotive journalists Richard M. Langworth and Graham Robson, "The combination of swoopy, rounded looks, impeccable construction, and the ordinary but sturdy and economical Beetle drivetrain proved irresistible". And so it remains today, epitomized by this very desirable example.
