Model information

Karmann Ghia Convertible


Thrill on the Hill was a great show in Waterford back in 1990 and 1991. It was supported by Tom Murphy Volkswagen as well as having involvement from many VW clubs around the country. Sadly it never continued but what it did do was bring out some never seen before VWs and in many cases, some never seen since VWs. One such VW was this 1971 Karmann Ghia Convertible. The Italian design is timeless and in the cabriolet format here it’s jaw dropping.

Modified without differing from the original design, the subtle changes included blacked out trim, Brazilian style stock rims that were chromed, slightly lowered and a Monza 4 Tip exhaust to give a throaty roar to the 1600cc engine sitting out the back!

It certainly drew a large crowd parked up in Waterford but we wonder where it is now.
