1971 Karmann Ghia Coupe Wht WG072112

I videoed this car (or one just like it) some time ago, but I think this video is of better quality! Now you can see under the hood! It was an ingenious way to use VW mechanicals for a sporty car. This one is in beautiful condition!

1980 AMC Concord DL Wht WG072112
There were sooo many models and names for AMC during the 50's through the 70's. Just think of the AMX, Javelin, Ambassador, Classic, Rambler American, Rambler, Gremlin, Eagle, Hornet, Marlin, Matador, Pacer, Rebel and Spirit, never mind the standbys at Jeep..Wagoneer and Cherokee! When you think about it, it really is quite an accomplishment considering the almost limitless resources of the Big 3! AMC was a great competitor!





1985 Mercury Capri ASC McLaren Convertible Red Eust072812
These cars were modified by ASC, and began life as Mercury Capris, both convertibles and hatchbacks. Capris at this point were based on the regular Ford Mustang, Fox body. The engine on the convertible is the familiar 5.0, with the back seat removed and a new convertible top fitted along with tonneau cover and decklid. Capris are fairly rare now, ASC modified ones are even moreso!





1968 Dodge Charger RT BlkRed WG062114
The film "Bullitt" made the Charger famous..in the film it was a '68 Magnum 440. This is the RT. The importance of movies in the reputation and desirability of a car can't be understated. The movie did a similar job for the Bullitt Mustang, a 1968 Mustang 390 GT 2+2 fastback. An interesting note...two Mustangs and two Chargers were used in the filming. Both Chargers were junked, but one Mustang survived. McQueen wanted to buy it, but the owner refused. (IMDb)

It was fully restored in 2005, and it's till looking great today. It's powered by the flat four, backed by a four speed manual trans. The paint is slick, the interior looks like new, and it runs out great. This is on sharp Karmann Ghia. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

VW Karmann Ghia 1974
From Wikipedia The Type 14 debuted at the October 1953 Paris Auto Show as a styling concept created for Ghia by Luigi Segre. In the early 1950s, Volkswagen was producing its economy car, the Type 1 (Beetle). With an increase in post-war standards of living, executives at Volkswagen proposed adding a halo car to its model range, contracting with German coachbuilder Karmann for its manufacture. Karmann in turn contracted the Italian firm Ghia, who adapted styling themes previously explored for Chrysler and Studebaker to a Beetle floorpan widened by 12 in (300 mm). In contrast to the Beetle's machine welded-body with bolt-on fenders, the Karmann Ghia's body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped and smoothed with English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end manufacturers -- and resulting in the Karmann Ghia's higher price. The design and prototype were well received by Volkswagen executives, and in August 1955 the first Type 14 was manufactured in Osnabrück, Germany. Public reaction to the Type 14 exceeded expectations, with over 10,000 sold in the first year. VW Karmann Ghia Cabriolet The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14's engine displacement grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a displacement of 1584 cc, producing 60 hp (45 kW). In August 1957, Volkswagen introduced a convertible version of the Karmann Ghia. Exterior changes in 1961 included wider and finned front grilles, taller and more rounded rear taillights and headlights relocated to a higher position -- with previous models and their lower headlight placement called lowlights. The Italian designer Sergio Sartorelli,[8] designer of Type 34, oversaw the various restylings of Type 14. In 1970, larger taillights integrated the reversing lights and larger wrap-around turn signals. Still larger and wider taillights increased side visibility and at the same time large square-section bumpers replaced the smooth round originals. For the USA model only, 1973 modifications mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) included energy-absorbing bumpers. A carpeted package shelf replaced the rear seat.

Karmann Ghia - Upholstering the VW Visors
How I rebuilt and recoverd my sun visors. Most VW visors are built similarly. I coated the fiberboard with fiberglass resin, then covered them using some 1/8" landau foam, and tweed fabric to match the headliner that will be used in the car.
