Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the
public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in
Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück.
50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part
in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the
big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and
helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of
Osnabrück in northern Germany.
This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official
video off the anniversary.
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.
Electric Car 2 Owner 1971 VW Squareback EV Beetle Bug Karmann Ghia wagon
This is a Very clean 1971 VW Squareback Wagon. If your looking for one of
these cars this is as clean as it gets it is a 2 owner from what i know of
the car. The coolest thing possibly is the fact that the car is a Electric
Vehicle / EV also if you want i will include the Generator so you can make
it a Hybrid. This is a great car and the electric part is done right these
kits cost $7500 to $9500 and then you have to install it and have a vehicle
prepped for it etc there is $15,000 to $20,000 you will not have to dump
into yours if your looking for the ultimate Hybrid. call anytime Nathan 406
