This vehicle has undergone a conversion to RHD and a total restoration by Marque Restorations & Motor Repair, a well respected restoration specialist in Kilkenny Adelaide. Part of the restoration was to completely remove any rust and give the body a complete anti rust treatment. There is an extensive file of paperwork and receipts amounting to a considerable total, spent on this car to bring it to its current condition. This includes an engine rebuild completed in December 2020 by Volks Care, VW specialists of Windsor Gardens, Adelaide.
Recently the subject of a service dated the 11th of August 2023, so fresh and up to date and ready to go.
Originally powered by a 1.5 Litre 4 cylinder air cooled engine, it produced when new 39Kw and 106Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via a 4 speed manual gearbox. Performance suggests a top speed near 130kph, however with recent engine work, this example is likely to exceed it’s original capabilities.
Performance wasn’t the key feature of the Karmann Ghia, however it’s iconic style has taken it into cult status around the world, this example is a proud contender.
