"One of the few new cars sold in Sweden in 1973. A nice-looking car with an interesting Saxomat clutch."


In 1973, this Karmann Giha was sold in Sweden. It has a very good finish on an older repaint. The original interior of the car is still in good condition. It has travelled a distance of 123,48 kilometers (the metre has gone around). Unusual with a three-speed saxomat and a semi-automatic transmission.

Driven till 1990, then put into the collection at the Volkswagen dealer in Borås until ending up at Holmgren's car museum in Pålsboda in 1993. The current owner has had the car since 2018 and has driven it for just over 400 kilometres. Brakes, callipers, brake hoses, fuel pump, and the carburetor have all been replaced (original calliper and carburetor included). It also has excellent tyres mounted on VW 1303 Big rims (original rims included). Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio fitted and recieved comprehensive service. There are also new rear bumper mounts included.
In September 2021, the car was inspected without issue.

Facts about the model

Linjesköna Karmann-Ghia fick behålla sina fina grundformer till slutet. 1970 gjordes baklamporna större och två år senare kom de stora stötfångarna. 1974 tillverkades sista Karmann-Ghian och nya Scirocco tog över som Volkswagens sportigaste.
1500-motorn på 44 hk som kom 1967 var i princip samma som i Typ 3, men med annan placering av kylfläkten. Samma år kom också skivbromsar fram, bredare spårvidd bak, kompensationsfjäder över bakvagnen, tvåkrets bromssystem och fyrbultade fälgar istället för fem. Den halvautomatiska Saxomat-kopplingen kom som tillval 1968.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
