The history of the Karmann Ghia’s creation started in 1953 of October when this was showcased in Auto Show in Paris which was then called Type 14.It was Luigi Segre who created the style for Ghia. Volkswagen, who has been manufacturing the Type 1 or popularly known as the Beetle, an economy car, proposed to add halo car and contracted Karmann, the coach-builder to manufacture it. Karmann also contracted Ghia, an Italian firm where the styling theme was explored and adapted for Chrysler and for Studebaker. The Ghia styling concept was even claimed by Virgil Exner which was based on his design of the Chrysler D’Elegance in 1953.
The body panels of the Karmann Ghia went through a time consuming manufacturing processes that involves hand shaping, butt welding, and used English pewter in smoothing it. The result was high quality that also made the racy car more costly. The prototype as well as the design was turned to Volkswagen in 1955 of August and it was in Osnabruck Germany that the Type 14 was manufactured and amazingly sold 10,000 units for the first year that it was out in the market. It was in 1957 that the Karmann Ghia convertible version was showcased. There were changes made with this beautiful sports car in 1961 where it included front grilles which are wider as well as finned, the rear taillights and the headlights were made taller, more rounded, and this was relocated and positioned higher. The idea of the changes in designs was Sergio Sartorelli’s, the Type 34 Italian designer.
More changes were made for Karmann Ghia in 1970 where larger taillights and wrap-around signals were integrated. For USA model Volkswagen made the bumpers large square in 1972, and in 1973 it has included an energy-absorbing bumpers, a modification that was mandated by the “National Highway traffic safety Administration”. In addition to this rear seat was converted to a package shelf which is carpeted.
