Vehicle description

HI I AM SELLING MY 1972 KARMANN GHIA RAG TOP. GREAT CAR. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND I HAVE BEEN TOLD ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS THAT THE RAG TOP IS PRETTY RARE. THE CAR HAS ITS ORIGINAL 1600cc FLAT-4 ENGINE. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD THE ENGINE REBUILT 3 YEARS AGO AND IT RUNS GREAT. AT THAT TIME HE HAD A NEW CLUTCH ASSEMBLY REPLACED AS WELL. NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS CAR STARTS RIGHT UP AND RUNS GREAT. IT IS VERY DRIVABLE AND EXTREMELY FUN. THERE ARE NO LEAKS AS I ALWAYS CHECK. THERE IS ALSO NO SMOKE BLOWING OUT EITHER. THE GEARS SHIFT SMOOTH AND THERE IS NO GRINDING BETWEEN THE GEARS.
THE EXTERIOR WAS REDONE SEVERAL YEARS PRIOR TO MY OWNERSHIP AND IT COULD DEFINITLY USE SOME PAINT WORK. THERE IS ALSO SOME BUBBLING ESPECIALLY ON THE DRIVERS FRONT FENDER. I AM PROBABLY MAKING IT WORSE THEN IT IS, BECAUSE MOST OF IT LOOKS GREAT. ALL THE RUBBER WAS ALSO REPLACED AT THAT TIME AND HAS HELD UP GREAT. I HAVE CHECKED THE FRONT NOSE AND IT APPEARS TO NEVER HAVE BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT. ALOT OF THEM TEND TO HAVE BODY FILLER THERE AND THIS ONE DOES NOT. ALL THE LITES ARE ORIGINAL AND THEY ALL OPERATE AS THEY SHOULD. ONE THING TO WATCH OUT FOR ON THE GHIA IS IF THERE IS A GAP BETWWEN THE HEADLITES AND THE FRONT FENDER AND THIS ONE IS GREAT THERE IS NO GAPS. THE RAG TOP FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND IS PRETTY RARE. IT DOES OPEN AND CLOSE WITH EASE BUT, THE FABRIC IS NOT IN THE BEST OF SHAPE. ALL THE CHROME AROUND THE WINDOWS IS EXCELLENT AS WELL. THE BUMPERS ARE NOT PITTED AND WERE PROBABLY REDONE AT SOME POINT. THEY SHOW WELL.
THE INTERIOR IS VERY CLEAN. THE SEATS, BOTH FRONT AND BACK DO NOT HAVE ANY RIPS OR TEARS IN THEM AND THEY ACTUALLY SHOW VERY WELL. THE DOOR PANELS DO NEED SOME ATTENTION AND ALTHOUGH THEY ARE NOT RIPPED OR TORN THE ARE OUT OF SHAPE IN SOME AREAS. THE HEADLINER IS REALLY EXCELLENT AND I WOULD ASSUME IT WAS REPLACED AT SOME POINT. THERE ARE NO TEARS AND NO SAGGING. THE CARPETS ARE EXCELLENT AND I ASSUME THEY WERE ALSO REPLACED AT SOME POINT. THE WOOD GRAIN ON THE DASH IS EXCELLENT THERE IS NO DISCOLORIZATION OR PEELING. THE DASH PAD IS EXCELLENT WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A HAIRLINE SPLIT RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE SPEAKER THAT YOU REALLY HAVE TO LOOK FOR. THE STORAGE COMPARTMENT BEHIND THE REAR SEAT IS CLEAN AND TIDY AS THE CARPET DOES NOT SHOW ANY WEAR. ALL THE GAGES WORK AS DO THE DASH LITES. THE HEATER BOXES ARE GOOD AND THE HEAT DOES WORK. THERE IS AN AFTERMARKET RADIO AND THAT DOES PLAY. ALL THE GLASS IS ORIGINAL AND THERE IS NO CRACKE OR CHIPS. THE FRONT WINDOWS ROLL UP AND DOWN WITH EASE AND THE REAR WINDOWS POP OUT WITH EASE.
THE UNDERSIDE SHOWS WELL AS THERE IS SOME SURFACE RUST BUT NOTHING ALARMING. THE INNER WHEEL WELLS ARE RUST FREE. THE FLOORS ARE ALSO RUST FREE. THE ROCKERS DO SHOW SOME BUBBLING BUT AGAIN NOTHING MAJOR.
