While the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia might be a bit obscure when it comes to Volkswagen convertibles, the Cabriolet based on the Mk1 Golf/Rabbit is anything but. For years, this affordable drop top runabout brought open air German motoring to the masses, as one would expect of the People’s Car. Nearly 400,000 were built from 1979 all the way up to 1993, when the MkIII Golf debuted. Many of these Cabriolets were used as daily drivers, leaving a relatively small amount of mint condition examples out there. However, this car for sale in Pennsylvania has covered under 100,000 miles, a complete history and looks sharp with its white over red color combination.

The Cabriolet is probably one of the last open roofed vehicles I’d consider buying, but once I saw that car, I was hooked. Yeah, it’s a bit of a chicks car, but it’s one of those cheap and cheerful cars you can’t help but love. While the seller has a reserve, a Cabriolet in this kind of condition will probably fetch somewhere between $5,000 and $7,000.
