Karmann Ghia Insurance

The VW Karmann Ghia is a very special car to us at Heritage Parts Centre, as it was supplying parts for these vehicles that started our business back in 1986. Because of this connection, we have made sure that our Heritage Parts Centre Insurance Services scheme offers everything that you could possible want from a Karmann Ghia insurance policy, however you choose to use your car. Regardless of whether your Type 14 is a project, a show winner or something in the middle, we can offer VW Karmann insurance to suit. Of course we can also quote and provide insurance for the Razor Edge Ghia too. The Type 34 is a less common sight on the roads (and at shows), but that’s even more reason to ensure it is suitably protected should something terrible happen.

Your car can be just as VW intended or highly modified – we don’t mind! In fact we can offer a great deal on modified vehicles, with many modifications not adding extra costs to your premium.

As enthusiasts ourselves we know many ‘Ghias are imported into the UK from Europe and USA and we can also cover LHD Karmann Ghias.
