Vehicle description

Extremely rare VW Karmann Ghia Tc. This is the only one known to exist in the USA. It is in good driver grade quality and runs well with the stock original Type 3 motor. The wheels are also very rare and will be polished soon. Though they are standard VW 4 lug so any wheel in that pattern would fit. The previous owner added a homemade sliding sunroof that is not very well done, we will be having a glass company just cut dark glass and make it a fixed moon roof.
I imported it to fix up and resell since they are so hard to come by and the process is not one many can manage alone. Now this is here in the US for you to add to your collection. I have added a couple pictures of how they can look with slight changes to suspension height and color and wheels.
I took it to Utah for the VW Wasatch Classic in July and it won an award for 2nd best. Each place I stopped people asked what kind of Porsche it was ;-)
Only 18,119 were ever produced and it is estimated that less than 9,000 are surviving in any condition.
The following is information from the web about the model and its history.
As an alternative to the Type 34 Karmann-Ghia coupé, which Volkswagen had introduced to Europe in 1961, Karmann-Ghia do Brasil looked to Ghia in Turin for a reworked version of the Type 14 at the end of the 1960s. At the time Ghia employed Giorgetto Giugiaro, the famous Italian designer and he was set to work on the new Brazilian Karmann Ghia. The result was the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia TC (Touring Coupé), internally known as the Type 145, which began production in 1972 and was produced until 1975. This was a roomy 2+2 coupe with a modern and comfortable interior. Underneath, it was similar to the Type 14, although the platform of the Volkswagen Variant was used rather than that of the Volkswagen Beetle. The main difference was the engine: the Type 145 TC was fitted with the 1,584 cc flat-four air-cooled boxer unit from the Type 3 instead of the 1,192 cc unit of the Type 14. The car produced 65 hp (48 kW) at 4,600 rpm and had a top speed of 86 mph (138 km/h), compared to the 34 hp (25 kW) and 72 mph (116 km/h) top speed of the Type 14 Karmann Ghia.
