"Euro bumpers" really bring out the lines of the car.

Flawless nose sheetmetal, from headlamp to headlamp.
Un-numbered 1959 Okrasa engine w Autolux exhaust, OG except for fuel line and turn down tubes.
Beautiful dash and yes, the horn works!
Lovely mats bring out the 1950s character.
She's inviting you to hop in for a lovely experience!
All four matching interior panels are in beautiful condition.
Even the trunk is beautiful. Note the condition of the VIN tag, for example.
Photo taken before assembly was complete.
When the seats were redone, the springs were replated.
The battery is held down via the stock strategy, even though it's 12v instead of 6v.
The chassis needed some work and got it.
Yes, new shocks, new brake parts, etc. Done Right.
Note the synchronous transaxle and that we painted the hard brake lines for longevity.
All genuine VW, early brake drums, refinished, painted with high-temp paint.
New where new is appropriate, otherwise old-school, and always done correctly.
That fawcet style heater knob is a very rare original..
1959 Karmann Ghia Coupe older resto w/fresh Okrasa   Price: $28000
Beautiful, driving, 1959 Ghia; rust free and almost completely original.
Has a few upgrades like 12volts and fully rebuilt (no miles) Okrasa, dyno-run-in and tested showing 50% more HP than stock.
The old-school Autolux four-tip exhaust is in fantastic condition - good chrome on the tips and no holes in the muffler, and it has a deep, rich sound without being overly loud.
Numbers matching body and pan with its OG ID tag.
Amazing interior with original door panels, steering wheel / horn ring assembly, rebuilt gauges...
It has beautiful tunnel, floor, rocker and footwell wall mats.
We took the time to hand sand out the 32 year old "orange peel" from the paint - it's beautiful but not perfect.

Too much to list, BUT you can find One-Hundred-and-One IMAGES here:

Here are some videos for you, all type MOV except the engine one which is an MP4:

+ Startup, showing fuel gauge and "idiot lights" working correctly, then a clockwise walk around the car with lamp display, right door closing, left flasher, brake lights, and four way flashers in the rear: http://oaklandaircooled.us/share/cars/59_MTKG_coupe/MTKG_startup_clockwise_walkaround_1.MOV

+ Interior starting and ending with the four-way flasher in operation and a counter-clockwise walk around the car including trunk interior, engine bay and more: http://oaklandaircooled.us/share/cars/59_MTKG_coupe/MTKG_interior_counterclockwise_walkaround_2.MOV

+ A video of the car driving from startup. Note that the car was started cold, then driven away cold! So, it has the typical hiccup when starting off stone cold. Note also that this video plays correctly on APPLE brand viewers but MAY or MAY NOT play 90 Degrees Rotated on Windows - we'll re-shoot it shortly! To wit: http://oaklandaircooled.us/share/cars/59_MTKG_coupe/MTKG_driving_1_90_degrees_rotated.MOV

+ A short video of the Okrasa engine on the dynamometer: http://356coachworks.com/share/engines/282/Okrasa_282_on_dyno.mp4

$28,000 with 36 horse (not original to car but correct for 1959)
$37,000 with Okrasa (Completely rebuilt with the best parts available, all original not reproduction except the fuel line and turn-down-tubes!)
