1967 Karmann Ghia Convertible Part Many of manyJuly14, 2011

After owning this 1967 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible for 22 years it is finally going to the body shop!! I took it in on July 14, 2011. I will be posting pictures on a monthly base. Going back to the factory paint color and that is a Cherry Red L554. It looks more maroon than red. If you have any suggestions on interior colors please let me know. Upholstery for that year model was India red, Khaki Brown, Black, Light Sand. Any suggestions for good places to buy parts let me know. I know about Sewfine, Mid America Motor Works, M & T MFG., Mofoco parts and accessories for VW vehicles, AirheadParts/Karmann Ghia.com and House of Ghias. I am trying to keep the vintage, classic, image and upholstery look of this car. I plan on using this as maybe my weekend or daily driver.I have a 65 vw bug with the original 1200 cc engine and 6 volt system. It may become my daily driver or weekend car. I just love how the car runs or putts around.

Karmann Ghia - Upholstering the VW Visors

First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is temporary.
