The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a true classic.

The 2+2 coupe and convertibles were marketed from 1955 to 1974 by Volkswagen to combine the chassis and mechanics of the Type 1 (Beetle), styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia, and hand-built bodywork by German coachbuilder Karmann.

It was so damn stylish the KG soon became the car most imported into the US.

Over 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car’s production life—not including the Type 34 variant. Karmann Brazil produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975.
