About Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

In the 1950s the post-war quality of life was improving greatly. Volkswagen was known for producing its type 1 Beetle as an economy car, but there was now more of a demand for a higher class of vehicle. Karmann, the German coachbuilder, was contracted to make this new car idea a reality. Karmann in turn contracted Ghia, an Italian company that had previously worked with Chrysler and Studebaker, to help style the body of the vehicle. Much of the car was hand built for quality which caused the car to be noticeably more expensive than the Beetle. Introduced in 1955, the Karmann Ghia quickly made its way overseas and became the most commonly imported automobile to the United States over the next few years, and was produced until 1974. The Karmann Ghia was a two door 2+2 coupe that combined a new sporty looking stylish body work with the proven engine of the Beetle’s engine. In 1957 a convertible model was released alongside the coupe. Throughout the 1960s a few redesigned models were made available, although they remained mechanically similar to each other and remained as a stylish luxury car rather than an actual sports car.
