Vehicle History Report

This is a numbers-matching Low Light Karmann Ghia in its original color of L345 Cardinal Red.  This car is in remarkably fine condition.  The Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen Zertifikat (VW birth certificate) shown in the pictures comes with the car.  The certificate and letter from the Museum confirm that it retains its original paint color and 36 hp engine.  This beautiful Ghia was built on March 18, 1958, equipped with M355 US-Equipment and M128 White Wall Tires.

BODY / CHASSIS:  I have never seen a Low Light with a body and undercarriage as nice as this.  I was told that the body has never been off the chassis, and that the floors, body, nose, trunk, etc. are original and have never had any notable damage or rust.  The doors, hood, and trunk lid are in outstanding alignment.  One of the pictures shows the inside of the nose (which still has its original paint,) and you can see how pure it is.  This car received a body-on restoration approximately ten years ago and has been driven less than 90 miles since.  About the only notable flaws I found are a few dings in the metal trim around the windshield and rear window (these trim pieces could be replaced or re-chromed by the next owner if desired.)

MECHANICAL:  This classic Volkswagen runs and drives beautifully.  The tire tread looks nearly new, but the tires are probably about ten years old.  The steering and suspension feel excellent.  The engine has a 30 PICT carburetor installed, but the original 28 PCI is included if you want to rebuild it.

GAUGES / ELECTRICAL:  This Ghia retains its original 6-volt system.  The gauges, odometer/speedometer, lights, electrical, etc. all work excellent except that the clock is not working.  The AM radio turns on and the knobs and buttons work properly, but there is no antenna installed so I can’t get it to tune in any stations.  The odometer currently reads 18,114, but I don’t have records to determine the actual mileage.  It is sold mileage exempt because of the age.
