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.

Upholstering VW Visors - Karmann Ghia
How I rebuilt and recoverd my sun visors. Most VW visors are built similarly. I coated the fiberboard with fiberglass resin, then covered them using some 1/8" landau foam, and tweed fabric to match the headliner that will be used in the car. Follow me on social media.

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





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.
