Full Description: Dec 55 ghia found by Mike from HouseofGhia in 2007 The body and the LH door have matching numbers, but the RH door and the rear decklid have no numbers...the front lid is missing.

According to House of Ghia the cars is not much more than a shell with some additional parts...thin back seats, a pair of one-piece bumper blades, and a small box of parts

Update (6/5/08): I've aquired the vin tags and title for the ghia!...along with another small box of parts. yeah!

The owner of the car in 1993 placed an article in Hot VWs Jan 1993 trying to find out how hold the 55 ghia was.

Later the car was owner by a ghia collector named Robison, who owned a couple of lowlight ghia's.

In 2009 the car was sold by House of Ghia to dustin who will try to bring it back on the road.
