Volkswagen’s Karmann-Ghia (named after the design studios that created it) may have simply been a Beetle in a pretty dress, but what a dress! The Karmann-Ghia is easily one of the most beautiful cars of the 1960s – itself one of the most beautiful eras of car design – and this gorgeous Model Team recreation of the classic coupe captures the Ghia’s curves superbly. Built by Vibor Cavor and suggested by a reader you can see more at both MOCpages and Flickr.
My dad has one! in red as well. This was definitely a treat! thanks for blogging.
Also, I’m hoping to get the camper van set for Christmas this year, looks like this was built from it!
Thanx for suggesting if that was you. In honesty, the idea was inspired by LEGO sets. They have done ready made cars of Beetle, Camper van and Karmann. So far only Beetle and Camper were later made as sets. Now, I thought to myself is Karmann’s turn so I did make it to fit the Camper van set scale.
