VW Karmann Ghia - TMI Carpet Kit Install - Part 1
I made HUGE progress on the interior of the Karmann Ghia today. I got the
heater channel "Y"s welded in, I got the kick panels made, I got the
windlace (s) made, I got the windlace retainers striped and painted, I got
the rear seat area covered in vinyl and I got a fair amount of the carpet
kit from TMI installed.
Karmann Ghia Windshield Installation - Part 2
Wrapping up the install on the Karmann Ghia windshield. Use Silicon or
dish soad instead of Vasoline. Found out butyl rubber doesn't like
petroleum jelly. If you are squeamish about seeing glass get hit with a
hammer, turn the channel.

Very Original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for Sale
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1960-vw-karmann-ghia/ to see this
fantastic original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for sale by Sunset Classics in
This unique example has only 20k original miles and it still retains the
original factory tires from 1960! The interior is original with the
exception of new carpet, and the little Karmann Ghia still sports its
original 36 hpr engine.
Stepping into this Karmann Ghia is like stepping into a time machine. The
ivory knobs and the ornamental chrome trim is straight out of the '50s (and
1960 of course). The "whirr" of the engine paints a smile on anyone's face
who is lucky enough to hear it. You can be proud driving this beauty no
matter what your destination.
The paint is not original but the paprika red and white color scheme is.
The floor pans look to be original and they are in good shape. At some
point there was some body work done to the panels just before the rear
wheels. The trunk is nice and the rear quarter panels look to be original
and they are in great shape. As you can see from the photos there is some
rust around the headlights and in front of the passenger side rear wheel.
But the paint and car look great overall, and these areas could be touched
up if desired.
The story history of this cute little car is both interesting and
extraordinary - check out the full story at the link above as well as
detailed photo gallery and more video. Then give me a call to claim her for

Karmann Ghia Windshield Installation - Part 1
Part one of how to install a windshield on a Karmann Ghia. I wanted to use
new glass for this, but the powers that be, could not supply the correct
one. I'll be using the old glass for now and I may change it out when a
clear replacement becomes available.
