1960 Karmann Ghia Convertible Barn Find (Part 2)
For Jeff G., another quick tour of the 1960 Karmann Ghia convertible, after 100 pounds of mouse nests and roofing shingles were removed and the whole beast was hosed down several times.





Barn Find 1968 Euro Beetle, First Start.
This is her first attempted startup in 21 years! Of course before I tried it, I poured Marvel Mystery Oil in the upper cylinders, filed and gapped the points, rebuilt the carburetor, and replaced the fuel pump, plugs, and wires. Still it impressed me that it fired up after all those years of sitting. Pulled this old bug from a barn in rural Oklahoma, where it sat unmoved for over two decades. You just can't kill these old VWs. Thanks for watching.





Karmann Ghia Cabrio
Een Italiaanse look en Duitse techniek versmelten met elkaar in de Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Stijl en elegantie gecombineerd met betrouwbare techniek . Ook Patrick viel voor de lijnvoering van de Karmann Ghia en mag zich nu jaren later eigenaar noemen van een imposante collectie auto's en miniaturen. Verzamelaar en onderzoeker noemt hij zichzelf en als ware kenner van het model een wandelende encyclopedie. In de jaren vijftig was de Karmann Ghia een imagebuilder voor Volkswagen. Naast de Kever en de spijlbus lanceerden VW een elegante sportcoupe en in 1958 voor het eerst een cabriolet op basis van dit model. Door de chassisconstructie was het voor individuele carrosseriebouwers ook mogelijk om op basis hiervan een eigen carrosserie te maken. Als echte verzamelaar heeft Patrick zich dan ook gefocust op de eerste "lowights" en de speciale uitvoeringen. Zijn collectie auto's van bijzondere Ghia's, wordt aangevuld met een indrukwekkende verzameling miniaturen en andere model gerelateerde verzamelobjecten. Hier is geen twijfel mogelijk, dit is een echte liefhebber die zich volledig verdiept heeft in dit model! Lekker toeren en uitwaaien met de 58-er Lowlight Cabriolet. Vol met accessoires en kenmerkende stijlelementen van de eerste serie Karmann Ghia's. De koplampen net iets lager dan de latere versies geven hem de bijnaam Lowlight. In grote lijnen hetzelfde als zijn opvolgers, maar toch net op alle punten even iets anders en heel verfijnd. Kenmerkende details welke verraden dat een dergelijke auto nog handgebouwd is bij een carrosseriebouwer. Patrick rijd graag in de auto waar hij een heuse jacht op heeft gemaakt om hem in bezit te krijgen. Juist deze uitvoering en voorzien van een originele Okrasa opvoerset maken het een begerenswaardige auto voor een verzamelaar als Patrick. Het gevoel , de passie, ruimte en de wind door de haren geven direct contact met de omgeving. Dak open en uitwaaien maar! Wind en uitwaaien zijn zeker toepasselijk als je hoort hoe deze, van oorsprong nieuw in Amerika geleverde VW naar Nederland is gekomen. Een lange reis waarbij de auto een orkaan heeft getrotseerd. Eenmaal gearriveerd in Nederland wachtte deze cabriolet een warm welkom in de collectie van Patrick. Voor veel liefhebbers van mooi design en de betrouwbare Volkswagen techniek heeft de Karmann Ghia een speciale betekenis. Kijk mee wat Patrick in vervoering bracht en wat resulteerde in een bijzonder mooie collectie. Dennis Rietveld

Old VW Bus -1958 VW Bus Find - Part 1, found in NM desert - rare volkswagen discovery!
I found this impossibly located old 1958 vw bus with safari windows that had been hidden away in the secluded desert of NM for over 30 years (since 1978). I bought it from a cool old hippie named Chris (aka santa) who owned the land. He and his wide toured Canada and the States in the 70s in "Glinda" the majic bus. My friend Andrew who shot this video drove us there in his vw '69 single cab. We made it 99% of the way but eventually got stuck in a ravine (no roads). This find is a genuine early '58 deluxe with original safari windows and a crank hole in the apron (found it inside). Someone had changed the taillights to larger in the past but the dash, etc is a museum piece. (update: I have since fixed them back to original.) I have been looking for a rare old early split window deluxe vw bus like this since I sold my '60 23 window. The few remaining unrestored really old VW buses left in the world are extremely scare with greatly increasing popularity and value thus getting nearly impossible to locate in the raw like this. What is left of this time piece was preserved only due to it being located in one of the most inaccessibly dry and desolate places on Earth. I am going to attempt a dangerous recovery tomorrow with a 4x4 and electric winches thru the passes after I mount the wheels. Due to steep jagged crumbling terrain and a snake pass it will be very difficult to get out and could tumble down gulleys, etc. Whatever happens you will see it here as we will record and post. Please bookmark this video so you can see sequels to this great adventure. I plan on having this diamond in the rough treasure bus rolling by next week so stay tuned. Thanks everyone for watching. Feel free to share your thoughts and any ideas for "Glinda"...Peace! UPDATE: I restored the bus and drove it over the rocky mountains with a 50 year old 36hp crank start motor! Watch me crank her up and go. Please watch all the great sequels to see the awesome adventures road tripping in a 58 safari bus resurrected from the summer of love. These vids are cracklin' with positive vibes and good energy! Website: http://58safaribus.webs.com/ I am looking for another old vw to restore. If you know where I can find one please let me know. Please contact me anytime at: ntt420@yahoo.com God bless everyone.

1965 VW Bug Convertible, original sitting from 78 I have the task of selling a German purchased 1965 Bug convertible badged at rockers "Karmen" (possibly a European VW badge) for a little old lady, (original owner). Putting feelers out for price and advanced sale interested parties looking for fast sale at fair price and sell a 1965 VW Bug convertible.

This Bug has issues as any car would from sitting all the years. It is what it is, luckily in this case.Convertible!! The top actually looks good, because the sun did not get to it. There is surface rust on many panels and well as completely rusted thru the floor, bottom edges of doors, door jambs. The motor is currently not running, although the owner tells me it was running when stored. The owner says at that point the motor needed a ring job as it was burning a little oil. The car is European, was purchased in West Germany and driven for a few years around Europe, then shipped to Pittsburg PA, driven there and finally ended up in a Port Washington garage in 1978; the registration and inspection stickers are on the windshield from that year.

Of course all sales are no warranty expressed or implied at all. Sale is final. This VW is sold as is, not running.

Mercedes 190 SL Barn Find.
This is a documentation of a true barn find. The car is a 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster. It was purchased from a 90 year old woman in NJ. The car had not been on the road since 1993 when her husband died. Using a clay cleaning system and 3 step polishing with an oribital polisher, I brought the cars finish back to life. I took about 200 photographs about ever 5 minutes, over 3 days. The total elapsed time was about 14 hours. I hope you enjoy whatching as much as I enjoyed bring the car back to life! Thanks for watching.

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 sale! 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 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.
