Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 4 - Outer Canvas
It been a long time since the last video on the install (September 2012 to
be exact). The top arrived from TMI by way of HOG and this video shows the
installation of the canvas top onto the headlined and padded frame. I will
have one more video in this series showing the finishing touches and adding
all the necessary seals around the windows.
Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 2 - Headliner
A step by step of how I installed the custom tweed headliner from Mike at
House of Ghia (made by TMI) in my 1974 VW Karmann Ghia. Thanks to Vince
(Ghiaaddict) on thesamba for his step by step tutorial. I would not have
even attempted this without his help and guidance.

1965 VW Bug Convertable Barn Find, Long Island , NY May 2010
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
looking for fast sale at fair price and sell a 1965 VW Bug convertible.
This VW sitting from 1978 inside a garage is in original condition. 81K
showing (probably kilometers). Car is complete, original condition. We have
papers and clear title.
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.
You motor heads, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or call
Am hoping that the YouTube video of this car will filter and screen all the
chaff from the wheat. When prospective buyers see the car, all needs to be
done is exchange cash and sign the ownership over. Take a good luck and
make your best offer.
Of course all sales are no warranty expressed or implied at all. Sale is
This VW is sold as is, not running.
