eBay watch: 1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia L
One of the most eye-catching cars ever to hit the forecourt, this 1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia L is guaranteed to grab the attention of passers-by. Even more so in this bold shade of orange.
It's a left-hand drive US import, being sold for genuine reasons (the seller is leaving the country to go travelling). He bought it two years back, describing it as running 'nice' and pointing out that it 'starts every time'. The body work is in 'good shape' and lots of work has been done over the years.
That includes new disk brakes and braking system fitted, a lowered front adjustable beam and back, a professionally paint job, seats in black leather with orange trim, black headlining, fitted carpets, padded dash top, door cards in black leather, brand new towel rail bumpers front and back, a four tip exhaust and alloy wheels.
There's an MOT until May 2013 and a price right now of £2,000 with no reserve. More images and details on the listing.
