This Volkswagen Karmann Ghia (Type 14) has been photographed on a historical car scrapyard in Switzerland. The car has been produced between 1955 and 1974, the one in the picture is an early model built before 1959, as you can recognize from the small grille. Full of dirt and moss, this coveted classic sure is a heavy project for a restauration.
Nevertheless, someone actually bought it, when all cars on the scrapyard were sold. According to the seller, it is the 1958 model.

Here are some photos from the buyer:

(Look at the Porsche 356 next to it!)

In better condition, the car would look that way:
