The Karmann Ghia is a Volkswagen powered, coach-built automobile. The first Ghia was introduced in 1956. It used the chassis, suspension and drive train from the Type 1 Beetle. The Karmann Ghia and Bug are mechanically and electrically identical from 1956 through 1974; their chassis are not interchangeable. The car was available as a coupe and cabriolet convertible. The Karmann Ghia is the only Volkswagen powered, coach-built automobile that carries the Volkswagen logo, and was officially sanctioned by Volkswagen AG. Coupe Coachwork: Ghia Chassis Num: 1402013167 The Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia was a German-ltalian joint effort introduced in 1955. Dr. Wilhelm Karmann, whose firm was building the cabriolet version of the Beetle, submitted designs to Volkswagen in hopes of generating new business. The designs were for a new sporty coupe, which Volkswagen ignored. Around the same time, Mario Boano and Luigi Segre of Italy’s Carrozzeria Ghia had proposed some styling enhancements to Volkswagen. These too were ignored. Karmann approached Ghia directly, resulting in a prototype. Using a Beetle, Ghia developed a new body that was mounted directly to the Beetle’s basic platform chassis. The prototype was sent to Karmann in late 1953 and used to impress Volkswagen’s chief Heinz Nordhoff. There were slight differences to the Beetle’s body; the new coupe had slightly wider bodywork and a lower roof line. There was a bulge in the rear fenders and an extended lower-body crease. Some of these design features were shown on the Chrysler-Ghia d’Elegance Concept car of 1953. In 1955, the Karmann-Ghia was a very popular vehicle and would remain in production until July of 1974 after 283,501 coupes and 80,897 convertibles had been produced. This Karmann-Ghia is a late-production coupe that has been treated to a pro
