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.

Driving my Karmann Ghia
The 1956 Karmann Ghia I own does get driven from time to time. I have friends who claim I 'never' drive it. This video shows that isn't the case.





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

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.





(HD) SCC: Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1600 Cabriolet 1971 - Prueba de manejo - Test Drive
We make these videos because we love cars. Please help us keep making them by liking our videos. Thank you very much! Recently we came across this beautiful Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1600 Cabriolet 1971 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one! The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a sports car marketed in both 2+2 coupe (1955--1974) and convertible (1957--1974) body styles by Volkswagen. The Karmann Ghia combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle) with styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia and hand-built bodywork by the German coach-builder Karmann. The Karmann Ghia was internally designated the Type 14. Volkswagen later introduced a variant in 1961, the Type 34, featuring angular bodywork and based on the newly introduced Type 3 platform. Production doubled soon after its introduction,[5] becoming the car most imported into the U.S.[5] American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed products.[6] More than 445,000[3] Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's production life -- not including the Type 34 variant. Karmann Brazil produced 41,600 cars locally for South America between 1962 and 1975.
