I thought this ad might be of interest due to the detail in the list of features attributed to the "Sport" package that was added to the Super Beetle.

Here is a shed find that I found a couple of weeks ago, just learning about the Ghia, always wanted one and this is the first one that I found when I went to look at 3 old bugs in the woods behind the shed! VIN# 14327200xx

Wow!
Looks as though that might clean up pretty nicely!
Side trim mostly still there, original wheels. Is that the original spare on the ground in front of the car? Torsion cover still in place.
Not sure what's going on where the right rear light assembly would be?
Let us know if you find out more!...

Impossible to tell how many were made and how many survived. If you go back to the start of this topic and read the whole topic... https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=564969 you'll know as much about The Sport Ghia as the rest of us. Wink

Saw this ad, noticed the steering wheel and colour of the firewall... $350. Hopefully it goes to a good home.

Yes...didn't watch all the video but wheels and steering wheel are a good indication...didn't see a close up of the side trim but that would be a clincher, distinctively different to stock trim.
