The Karmann Ghia Convertible is the open-top version of the classic Karmann Ghia, produced by Volkswagen in collaboration with the coachbuilder Karmann. It was manufactured from the mid-1950s to the 1970s, featuring the same stylish design as the coupe but with a convertible top.
Stylistically, the Karmann Ghia Convertible boasted the same elegant and timeless design as its coupe counterpart. Its distinctive curved body, sleek lines, and overall aesthetic charm made it a standout convertible of its era. The convertible top added to its allure, providing the option for open-air driving experiences.
Like the coupe version, the Karmann Ghia Convertible shared the mechanical underpinnings of the Volkswagen Beetle, including its drivetrain and engine. While it maintained the sporty appearance, it was designed more for style and comfort rather than high performance.
Inside, the Karmann Ghia Convertible offered a relatively simple yet comfortable interior. The seating capacity was for two occupants, with a focus on providing an enjoyable open-top motoring experience.
Throughout its production, the Karmann Ghia Convertible received minor updates in design and features, but the core mechanical elements remained largely unchanged.
The Karmann Ghia Convertible, like the coupe, holds a special place in automotive history due to its iconic design, classic appeal, and its association with the carefree spirit of open-top driving. Its timeless styling and vintage charm continue to make it a sought-after classic car among enthusiasts and collectors.

Should any of these issues be present, feel free to get in touch with us via phone, email, or by completing our contact form. Your communication is valuable to us.
At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.
As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
