Full Description: Car was found in a barn in southern Denmark in august 2007. It is belived to be the oldest Karmann-Ghia i Denmark. The car only had 4 privious owners before it was pulled out of the barn.

Delivered new to the dealership Müller in Hannover, Germany. First private owner got it on the 29. december 1955.

In december 1956 it came to Denmark.

VW AG does not have any info on engineno. or bodycoulour anymore. The only extra option on the car was M018: Larger reflector in brake / indicator light. Removing the white paint indicates, that the car originally was L41 Black.

The bumpers are not onepiece units and the overriders are not closed on the back. So they are not original and were changed at some point.

In the 1960´s the car was restored with newer Karmann-Ghia parts and got the white paintjob.

Car is now being restored back to its former glory.
