Extensive Mechanical & Performance Upgrades Throughout

This 1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Convertible has been enjoyed by the current owner since 1980 and he informs us that he had it fully restored almost 20 years ago, including paint, body, a refreshed interior and extensively overhauling the drivetrain, axles, braking, steering and more.  While it does have a largely stock appearance to bystanders, this beautiful classic has been taken to an entirely new level and offers dynamic performance, both on the highway and around town.  It is an absolute pleasure to drive on the open road and it is easily one of the most impressive examples we’ve seen in years.

In terms of present condition, this 1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Convertible does show a few minor scratches to the exterior paint across an otherwise stunning body.  The engine compartment is still very well sorted as well with only minor blemish, while the custom interior shows some age from being frequently enjoyed.  It does appear that this classic has been maintained at very high levels over the years and we have ample receipts on file as well.

A Fantastic Overall Value at the Current Asking Price 

Overall, this 1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Roadster is the ultimate high-end driver for one lucky collector; the build quality is second to none with fantastic performance and excellent curb appeal.  It is an absolute steal at the current asking price and we do not expect for it to remain available for long.  For more information about this vehicle, visit our Fairfield, California showroom, give us a call at 707-419-8200, or email us at Sales@SpecialtySales.com.  Be sure to mention Stock # F13518 as well.
