The Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia ‘Lowlight Coupé’ – a timeless classic that’s as captivating today as it was in the mid-1950s. Picture this: It’s 1953, and the automotive world is abuzz with innovation and excitement. Enter Karmann and Ghia, the dynamic duo behind this masterpiece, blending the reliable engineering of the Beetle with the sultry curves of Italian design.

From its inception, the ‘Type 14’ prototype turned heads and captured hearts, leading Volkswagen management to greenlight production in 1955. And oh, what a production it was. With over 362,601 cars rolling off the assembly line over 19 years, the Karmann-Ghia cemented its place in automotive history.

But it’s the early ‘Lowlight’ models, particularly those from 1956 to 1959, that hold a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts. With their distinctive headlight placement and design purity, these beauties are like a fine wine – only getting better with age.

Take, for instance, our 1956 model, a California native that made its way to Europe in 2010. With a rust-free body and a pampered life, it’s undergone a meticulous rebuild, returning to its original Pelican Red hue and sporting a ’55-style gray interior. It’s not just a car; it’s a work of art, painstakingly restored to its former glory.

And behind the wheel? Pure bliss. Enhanced handling, thanks to a front anti-roll bar and widened front space, makes every twist and turn a delight. The sculpted dashboard beckons you to embark on a journey through time, where the cares of the modern world melt away with each mile.

So, if you’re ready to experience automotive perfection firsthand, don’t hesitate to reach out. Come see for yourself why the Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia ‘Lowlight Coupé’ is more than just a car – it’s a masterpiece in motion.
