Some tips for buying a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible include inspecting rocker panels for corrosion and rust on general body panels. Specific places to look for rust include around the spare tire, the battery and the rear trunk.
Karmann Ghia convertibles are highly desired and typically command higher prices than other types of Karmann Ghias. The main area to check on a convertible is the rocker panels where support beams give the convertible its structural integrity. Many interior and exterior parts are easily sourced for replacement. One exception to that is bumpers, so make sure to inspect these for accident damage.
