239 Volkswagen 1500 Karmann Ghia with original box

80 GBP
One of the less common colour combinations for this model, here in tomato red with a cream interior. It is a super example with only very minor marks on the lovely red paintwork. It has the correct spare wheel which can be pressed to open the luggage compartment and, at the rear, the engine compartment opens where there is also a clear cover that can be raised inside. That can often come adrift and go missing or be damaged.

There should be two cases with this model although I have often found it strange that anyone would have put a case on top of the engine! the cases are of the simple flat brown plastic variety that do not open. These are easy to find and I will add them to this when I get some. For now it is sold as it stands.

There is a very good box which is complete but just a little age worn in places and has feint signs of tape having been applied at some time to one end.
