Gaswerks Garage is proud to present our 1958 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Low Light Coupe. The Lowlight is a very rare and early variant of the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Initially built between 1955 and 1959 the redesigned Karmann was recognizable by the little extra taillights and the little air inlets at the front. Our Lowlight was built by Classic Auto Rewind which is an award-winning restoration company that specializes in vintage Volkswagen vehicles.
The master craftsman and owner of Classic Auto Rewind, Greg Armendariz, is an award-winning vintage Volkswagen restoration specialist and artist. He is the son and nephew of engineers and designers. This, he claims, is why fastidious attention to detail runs in his blood. When rebuilding a classic Volkswagen, Greg meticulously assembles the vehicles using OEM parts that he orders from suppliers all over the globe. For Greg, restoring Volkswagens is much more than hunting down the perfect hardware and accessories, though. He views each project as a piece of art, which is evident when viewing one of his restorations such as our Lowlight Coupe. His artistry dovetails perfectly with his attention to detail. He describes the cars he takes on as “almost living, breathing things.” His tenacity and artistry embody one overarching desire: For viewers to see his Volkswagens as the original designers intended them to be seen.
Our car is a rust free, California owned car. No expense has been spared, down to the nuts and bolts in this full OEM restoration! Our Lowlight features a 2-tone Corduroy interior. The Yellow paint is the period correct German paint and original color. Contact Gaswerks Garage today for more details!
