1958 Karmann Ghia Low Light Coupe PENDING   Price: Pending to Onix
1958 Karmann Ghia Low light coupe Never been wrecked. This is a very complete car missing nothing as far as I can tell. Comes with new complete interior including seat upholstery and pads (front seats already installed), headliner (already installed) new door panels front and back still in the box and a complete carpet kit and pad in the box all from TMI.

My brother owned it for 10-11 years where it sat in garage collecting dust for most of his ownership. The car has not run in at least 7 years due to him working overseas. Probably just needs a fresh battery, bleed the brakes and change the fuel lines.

Car is on its original rust free pan. We believe the 36hp engine w/original empi header and trans are original to the car as well but have not sent off for a birth certificate to authenticate the original owners claims from when my brother bought it.

The car has rust. As you will see in the pictures on this ad the front wheel wells, rockers (been bondo'd and the rocker area behind the rear wheels will need attention. I have put a couple pictures of this area as I am not trying to hide its flaws. The car comes with the replacement outer metal for both sides behind the front wheel well but no other new metal. NO RUST in the heater battery tray, under the rear seat, rear apron or pan.

I like this car but I am just not "into it". I would rather put the money and time into another project that I fit in a little better. I am 6'6" Tall.

All work that was performed about 8 years ago:
- 4 Narrowed adjustable beam with dropped spindles,new tie rods etc.
- Rear spring plates adjusted and new rear shocks
- Black primer sprayed over the white respray (originally a red car with black top)
- New front seat upholstery and pads installed
- New window seals all around (brother didnt know how to install the chrome around the window but all the original window trim is included)
- All new brake system was installed (master and wheel cylinders, rubber hoses, shoes)

Other parts that come with the car
- All new items in the boxes include: Clutch cable/ accelerator cable, signal arm knob, rear seat retaining strap, glove box bumpers, grommet for speedo cable through the spindle, new door panel clips and rubber boots, shifter boot, correct dome light, dash knobs and heater knobs, horn boot, E-brake boot (3 of them, don't know why), front hood badge seal, new hood seal and new drivers door seal (passenger one is already installed), accessory lighter, window cranks and a new swan neck side mirror
- New outside chrome trim still in the tube
- New door panels and carpet kit still in the boxes as well as rear seat upholstery and pad
- Has the original horn button, wiper arms, speedo, clock etc
- Polished 5 spokes with new 145s up front and 165s in the rear
- New center caps for the polished 5s are included just not currently installed
- Set of 4 original smoothie rims and stock spindles should you want to take it back to stock.
- Old door panels were saved for the chrome trim and arm rest.
- All the original window trim
- Original steering wheel and original horn button are present

Clear title. Overseas buyers welcome, I can provide references.

I do have an additional 175 pictures for serious parties that I can email. I am honest, the car will need rust repair but you can also just do some minor work over a weekend and drive it.
