The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a 2+2 coupe and convertible marketed from 1955 to 1974 by Volkswagen -- combining the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle), styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia, and hand-built bodywork by German coach-builder Karmann.
The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Type 14. Volkswagen later introduced a variant in 1961, the Type 34 -- featuring angular bodywork and based on the newly introduced Type 3 platform.
Production doubled soon after its introduction, becoming the car most-imported into the U.S. American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague selected the Type 14 for his list of the world's most beautifully designed products.
Over 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's production life -- not including the Type 34 variant. Karmann Brazil produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975.
The Volkswagen Beetle is a compact car manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen introduced in 2011 for model year 2012 as the successor to the New Beetle featuring a lower profile while retaining an overall shape recalling the original Volkswagen Beetle.
The Beetle is longer than the New Beetle (now 4,278 mm (168.4 in) and sharing the A5 (PQ35) platform with the current Volkswagen Jetta. It also has a lower profile, being 12 mm (0.5 in) lower than its predecessor and is wider, being 88 mm (3.5 in) wider. The boot is now 310 L (11 cu ft), up from 209 L (7.4 cu ft). The second generation Beetle will be built alongside the Jetta at Volkswagen's plant in Puebla, Mexico. Although early production versions in both Europe and North America have arrived with WVW VIN numbers, indicating German production.
Volkswagen projects that a convertible version will follow the coupe in 2012. A performance version, called Beetle R, is projected to follow later

1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is

I finally got around to shooting some real-time video as the cars sits
today. As you can tell there are many videos between the youtube footage
and now, I will try and hasten their delivery. The white floppy things late
in the vid are a couple of Tie-Wraps subbing for windshield wipers. Going
fast sure creates a lot of wind noise.
