Description

Oxford’s first release on the 1950s Karmann Ghia hit your diecast shelf in a brilliant red with white roof. Now it makes an equally dramatic entrance in black with a masked creamy white roof registered 170 NHU.

The Karmann Ghia was manufactured from 1955 until 1974, with over 445,000 being produced between the Ghia Works and the VW Osnabru̎ck plant. Designwise, it hardly changed during its lifetime, nor was there any need with its very pretty body shape and elegant lines. It had been a highly successful collaboration between by Wilhelm Karmann and the Italian Carrozzeria Ghia Company and it was snapped up by VW. They promoted it as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than a true sports car. The Karmann Ghia was available as either a 2-door 2+2 convertible or 2-door coupé sports car until it was classed purely as a two-seater model.

All the distinctive detail is here on our 1:76 scale model. The wheel inserts match the roof colour and this lovely cream colour has been used for the seats and the steering wheel. The Karmann Ghia ‘signature’ feature in silver across the boot alongside the Volkswagen name.

The model comes on a plinth, with a clear case lid and Oxford Automobile wrap.
