1972 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Coupe on 2040-cars

Year:1972 Mileage:79000
Location:

Unity, Maine, United States

Unity, Maine, United States

Great little car, starts all winter, runs strong, gets good mileage. I drive it about a hundred miles a week. I will post more pictures soon. 

Features include intact, shiny finish, great appearance inside and out, ORIGINAL engine and transmission, well maintained chassis and engine,  80,000 on the odometer, could  possibly be the actual mileage judging from the appearance of the seats, pedals, dash, etc. The left-side heat and defroster actually deliver hot air after a good warm-up. It has recent shocks, tires, brakes, battery and filter/fluid service. There are signs of owner care, indoor storage and improvements. 

Issues include rust (through) in the floor pan; body filler in the fenders and nose; and the original-looking steering wheel is cocked and cracked, suggesting a crash in this car's history. (You wouldn't know it from driving down the road.) No radio, no trunk liner, lame rugs. The wiring is buggy. Some small door and body molding issues. Missing the chrome strips on the sides.

Questions welcome. 

Thank you.

Volkswagen Group previews its wares on eve of Geneva show

Mon, 05 Mar 2012 16:55:00 EST

The Volkswagen Group is comprised of 11 brands producing 240 vehicles across 49 factories throughout the world. So the best way to show off the range of the VW family is to cram a few thousand journalists and VIPs into a massive makeshift stand to outline the Group's goals, what's in the pipeline and what you'll be able to buy later this year.
To that end, VW pulled out all the stops on the eve of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, bringing along 10 vehicles from across the range. We'll be delving into the details of each over the next two days of show coverage, but before that happens, you can read all about what we saw tonight from the cheap seats after the break.

TN politicians may push to end VW incentives if plant goes union

Tue, 11 Feb 2014 10:45:00 EST

Volkswagen's Chattanooga Assembly Plant is scheduled to vote on whether to unionize in the coming days, but Tennessee state lawmakers are threatening to deny future tax subsidies to the factory, if the vote is successful. The factory is currently the only Volkswagen plant worldwide that is not unionized.
The states's Republican lawmakers have been particularly vocal against the union vote. Tennessee state senator Bo Watson said during a press conference that VW would have a "very tough time" with future incentives if the vote were successful, according to Automotive News. Tennessee House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick said the "heavy hand" of the UAW is not welcome there. VW has drawn criticism from both sides because it has allowed both pro- and anti-union groups to speak to workers and hand out leaflets.
Roughly 1,500 factory employees will vote on whether to unionize from February 12-14. If successful, the Chattanooga factory would be the first in the US organized under a German-style works council system where white- and blue-collar workers directly negotiate factory issues with the company's management.

Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe Concept is an aspirational Jetta

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 13:00:00 EST

Meet the Volkswagen baby CC. Okay, that's not really it's name (VW calls it the New Midsize Coupe Concept), but this sleek, four-door coupe draws more than a little inspiration from the CC while riding on VW's MQB platform.
It's a looker, we think, and is an eye-pleasing departure from the bland styling of the current Jetta. The sleeker front end is complemented by a wider body overall (it's wider than a Passat), while the more sporting roofline and the sharp rear fascia gives the New Midsize Coupe a decidedly sporting character. LED head- and taillights add a bit more personality to this already stylish design.
Thanks to its 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, it should get along rather sportingly, as well. The run to 62 miles per hour takes just 6.5 seconds thanks to the 217 horsepower on offer. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is also fitted, and contributes to an estimated 37 miles per gallon.
