Mark Bialzik has owned this Karmann-Ghia since new in 1974. That’s along time to own a car. Then again, we can see why. There’s a lot to love about this classic, sporty ride.
This is what Mark had to say about his Karmann-Ghia…
“I purchased this car new in 1974. It was and remains my 1st new car with 53,530 miles on the odometer. The Karmann-Ghia was designed by Ghia and built by Karmann using a VW platform frame and running gear. It has a rear-mounted 1600cc air-cooled engine. I ordered the car with the optional aluminum wheels and later added a more robust front anti-roll bar and rear anti-roll bar in addition to a ceramic exhaust. The Karmann-Ghia was produced from 1955 through 1974. A twin to this car is on display in the Volkswagen Museum.”
