VW Karmann Ghia Production Information


Just how rare is that Karmann beauty you have in the garage? Match your Vehicle Identification Number to the chart below or go by model year. The VIN was originally located in three places on the car: under the rear seat on the tunnel, on the right wheel-well under the hood, and tagged to either the dash or under the winshield glass on the driver's side. Although I'm not sure, I believe the bulk of this information was originally compiled by Jim Patterson at House of Ghia
