1959 VW Karmann Ghia Coupe For Sale
One of the most beautiful VWs ever produced, the first generation of the Karmann Ghia is highly prized
by collectors the world over. From its inception in fall of 55 (56 model year) to the final year of the "lowlight" in 1959,
the design is so pure and the colors so beautiful it is no wonder why the values have been climbing steeply.
This particular example is pretty impressive. It was a full body off restoration to a very high quality
and it has been fitted with an extraordinarily rare vintage performance engine as well as some very rare accessories.
The color combination is perhaps the ultimate of red and black. which is correct for the year and model.
The history of the car is not fully known at the moment, but perhaps a reader can chime in and fill in the blanks.
It recently emerged from an Arizona collection and not long ago I believe it was in the Dr Mac Jones collection in Tennessee.
Prior to that it appears to have California ownership dating back to 2002.
