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.

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.

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

even attempted this without his help and guidance.

My four classic Karmann Ghias: '73 Ghia Vert for Sale
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.
