Originally destined for California, it was owned by a woman who took it cross country and then in the mid-1960's it was given to its former owner. He drove it into the 1970's where it was disassembled and remained disassembled until 2014. It's former owner drove it off and on in Orcas Island but it didn't run well. Earlier this year, after I got ahold of it, I replaced all the incorrect parts and have been driving ever since! ]]> 59 Convertible Bernina MTc3LTIwMjEtMDktMDggMjI6NDM6NTk= <span class="field_caption">Full Description</span>:&nbsp;Built on Jan. 6, 1959. Left factory on Jan. 13 for its destination San Francisco. I have the Birth Certificate from the VW Stiftung AutoMuseum. <br /> <br /> It was fully restored in the 90's by Lenny Copp's West Coast Classic Restauration. Since the restauration, ownership changed several times.<br /> I picked it up in 2010 from Jason Waldrom in Phoenix, AZ in December 2010 and brought it to its current home in Fairfax, Virginia. Before Jason, it was owned by Bart Dunn in Colorado. Before Bart there was an owner in the Carolinas (who bought it from the fella who had it restored in California). ]]> VIN 2145095 Nzg1LTIwMjEtMDktMDcgMDk6NTE6MTk= <span class="field_caption">Full Description</span>:&nbsp;Recently purchased and shipped to Sydney Australia from FINLAND. Still researching car's history, however I have been able to discover that it was purchased new in Mannheim Germany by a US serviceman who shipped it back home to Nebraska in the US. The car had 3 owners until 2006 where it was purchased by an enthusiast in Barcelona Spain. The car was orginally black and in very poor condition by this stage. The Spanish owner gave the car a full restoration and changed the colour to the period correct Aerosilver and Grey White roof in a bare metal respray which is stunning. He then sold it to a gentleman in Helsinki Finland who completed the restoration. I was looking for a lowlight for some time and purchased it in March 2021 during Covid which made shipping quite challenging. There are very few lowlights in Australia and it already is attracting a lot of attention. ]]> VIN 1995480 NjkxLTIwMjEtMDgtMzAgMDY6MDg6MTc= <span class="field_caption">Full Description</span>:&nbsp;Car is currently (2021) under going restoration.]]> VIN 2426693 Nzg0LTIwMjEtMDgtMjMgMDQ6NDM6MDI= <span class="field_caption">Full Description</span>:&nbsp;Purchased July 2021 out of Lancaster, California.

This wonderful car would be an outstanding candidate for concourse-quality restoration, or it could be used as a daily driver with a bit of work. Opportunities to acquire Low-Light Ghias with great pedigrees like this do not come up often anymore.<br /> <br /> This car was born in the rare and beautiful color combination of L241 Bamboo body paint, L318 deep green roof paint, L41 black wheel rim, L241 bamboo wheel disc, and two-tone green grey/green interior.<br /> <br /> HISTORY - FIRST OWNER: Based on our research and information provided by the previous owner, we learned that this Ghia was purchased new in Germany by a University of Florida research physicist. He had emigrated from Germany to Miami in the 1930s and moved to Gainesville Florida in 1937. We believe he took delivery of the car new in Mannheim Germany in the summer of 1959 while on holiday. Shortly thereafter he imported the car to Gainesville Florida where it remained for 59 years until present-day.<br /> <br /> HISTORY - SECOND OWNER: The second owner was a University of Florida professor of Astronomy who purchased the car on September 3, 1970 and owned it until we were lucky enough to find it six months ago. This car is still accompanied by its 1970 Florida title and comes with a full file of maintenance receipts. The odometer currently reads 84,107 and the previous owner said it is correct. Sometime in the 80’s he had the car painted pale blue and had the blue interior installed. He also had the engine rebuilt in the 90’s but drove it very little after that.<br /> <br /> MECHANICAL: The engine could probably use some fine-tuning, but it runs well, idles smoothly, and does not overheat. The brakes and clutch feel good and the gearbox shifts well through all the gears. This car sat for quite a few years, so the tires and battery were no good when we found it. We had the original wheels professionally sandblasted and painted before installing five brand-new tires. We also cleaned the fuel system and installed a new battery. This car retains its original 6-volt system. The steering and suspension feel good on the road.<br /> <br /> BODY / FLOORS / FRAME / PAINT: The floors, body, and trunk appear to be original and have typical rust as would be expected. The front hood and doors open, close, and latch properly and are in pretty good alignment. The engine lid opens, closes, and latches properly, but the alignment is slightly off. The nose appears to be undamaged and the spare wheel well has only minor rust. The paint is old and worn, and it has various chips, scratches and dings.<br /> <br /> INTERIOR / CHROME: The interior is old but is still usable. The chrome and bumpers appear to be original and need to be redone.<br /> <br /> GAUGES / ELECTRICAL: The speedometer and odometer are in good working order. The original clock still works excellent. The fuel gauge works but I don’t think the reading is completely accurate so it probably could use a new sending unit (which is easy to install.) Some lights work but some do not. The radio is not working and is missing the knobs and faceplate.<br /> <br /> TITLE TRANSFER AND PAPERWORK: I am a long-time classic car hobbyist and a licensed Florida car dealer (Classic Investment Motorcars Inc.) This means that you must complete the required sales and title transfer forms with me, which can be done in person or through the mail. The car cannot be released until I have received all completed paperwork and payment in full.]]> VIN 1888489 Nzc5LTIwMjEtMDUtMjEgMjE6NTA6Mjg= <span class="field_caption">Full Description</span>:&nbsp;For your consideration a 1958 lowlight Karmann Ghia Shell project roller on its original pan with a later tunnel type transmission.<br /> Perfect for a race car or full custom.

Pretty much everything mechanical has been replaced or rebuilt on my Ghia. The rear axles had new bearings and seals installed when I had the transaxle rebuilt. The shop used a higher 4th gear when they rebuilt it, so 70 mph down the highway is no problem.<br /> The 1600 motor was rebuilt by the previous owner. All brakes and bearings have been replaced along with adding a dual reservoir master cylinder.<br /> It has new: tie rods and tie rod ends, stainless steel bumpers and side moldings, tail light lenses, bamboo parcel tray, carpet, door sills, hood and trunk cables, smoothie rims, all window seals, hub caps, 5 Firestone white wall tires and many more items.<br /> It drives better than any VW I have owned. It has the correct gauges and working dome light. The paint/bodywork was done by a previous owner and had some bad prep work but has not changed since I have owned it, I would describe it as a 15 footer. The pans and heater channels are perfect. There is no rust in the bottom of the spare tire well. I bought the car from the west coast and the previous owner said it was purchased new there and had never left the west coast until I purchased it. The car still has the original key that works the ignition and door lock. I can provide more photos, I have a clean clear title in my name.]]>
