1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Coupe - Custom   Price: $30000
1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia - Custom
We can call this a true custom, with shaved bumpers, smoothed lines, a custom interior, and a 315hp dyno tested 2332cc engine, and plenty of other racing inspired modifications.

What appears to be a complete frame-off restoration, all panels were carefully removed, shaped to their original curves, reassembled and received a custom Tangerine Orange with a clear overcoat. The bumpers were left off and the gaps were left with laser tight tolerances. Slightly pointier front signal lights were added, all bezels highly polished, window surrounds blackened, and glass tinted. Finally, it is squared off on all corners with shiny 15 inch Eagle wheels wrapped in front by 165/80R15's and in back by 195/60R15's.

Not to be outdone by the exterior, a totally custom interior starting with the dash which has its front painted in the Tangerine, added in Classic Instruments, some signal and warning light indicators and a few under dash aftermarket gauges in a shiny panel. In the center is a black radio flush mounted into the orange. A black padded vinyl dash top is now installed, and a wood rimmed rally steering wheel is fronting this custom dash. Racing styled black cloth insert and shiny vinyl bolster bucket seats now are in front and for the rear a snazzy bench in more broadcloth and vinyl with some orange piping for some extra visuals. Door panels are custom with a gray burlap tweed covering and a smooth orange vinyl padded “V” pattern door pull and small arm bumper. Billet cranks with wood knobs and escutcheons are neatly mounted within this tweed field as well. More of the gray burlap tweed is used for the headliner, rear panels, and are highlighted by tangerine door sills. Beautiful gray peppered with black carpeting floods the floors and in front of the passengers are zig zag pattern tan and black berber floor mats. Shiny pedals are now installed, as well as shiny straight shaft wood knob topped shifter and custom turned handbrake wood handle.

A beautiful high performance 2332cc VW engine. It is a flat 4-cylinder turbo with wedge port heads, EFI, a T3/T4 hybrid turbo, and Gen 4 CB EFI controller. All polished and it has a water methanol injection system. This all tops out at 315hp on the dyno and a test drive will immediately confirm this. A 4- speed IRS manual transmission in a Rhino case is on back. Stainless steel exhaust and high performance fittings and hoses also grace this racy engine. All this work was performed by the talented folks at CB Performance in Farmersville California in 2012 and early 2013.

Pristine with no rust, just some extra floor pan and frame stiffeners. Drilled disc brake rotors are now on front and rear. New IRS suspension sports Proma Star shock absorbers and adjustable independent coil over suspension all around.

It fired right up and one can hear the performance ooze out of the melodious exhaust tones and feel the exhilaration when pressing the accelerator. It handles like it's on rails, and comes to a complete and quick stop with the drilled rotor disc brakes on all 4's. The interior is beautifully soothing and comfy and all functions were working to perfection. Here we have a “no expense spared” custom Karmann Ghia. A show car and a real go getter, all custom and near perfection paint, snappy interior, and the awesome engine which has plenty of HP's. Fully documented build, recent service w/ receipts, and clean Texas Title.
