My 1974 Karmann Ghia
This is my 1974 Ghia. It was a hunk of junk when I first purchased it. Five
years later after taking it compleatly apart it's now my favorite toy. 87mm
pistons too. The gauges on the dash are VDO, but I purchased three "BUS"
fuel gauges from junkyards. I removed the chromes rings and installed them
on the new VDOs. Now they match the originals on the dash.

My four classic Karmann Ghias, as you might guess the Karmann Ghia and
especially the Ghia Convertible is my favorite car. Here we have a 1962
Ghia Convertible (restoration in progress), a very original 1960 Ghia
coupe, and 2 1973 Ghia Convertibles. The Orange '73 Ghia convertible is for
This beautiful orange '73 Ghia Convertible has been with the same owner for
the past 24 years. The owner only put 3000 miles on it during the entire
time he has had it! The interior is original and in very good condition for
being original. The top even looks original and if it is original it is in
remarkable condition for its age.
The windshield still has the original VW logo and the condition of the
original interior leads me to believe that is probably the original mileage
at just over 61k.
