Description

A Volkswagen Karmann Ghia with exceptional provenance and condition.

An original UK right hand drive example that has had only three owners from new!  Originally ordered by a UK doctor that in between placing his order and the car being delivered emigrated to New York.  The car was shipped directly to him in NY and stayed there during his two-year ownership.  Following this, the car was bought by its second owners, an elderly couple that resided in Dublin.  This is where the car remained until early 2015 when the car was bought by the trade and a full restoration ensued.

The restoration was carried out by a VW approved body shop that not only stripped the car completely (including removing the body from the floor pan) but also went through the VW archives to ensure that every weld point was remade to the exact specification and location as original. This is just one example of how thorough the restoration was.

The original engine and gearbox was also stripped and rebuilt.

In short not only is this one of the most complete restorations we have ever seen but the finest Karmann Ghia cabriolet.
