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.

1967 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible Test Drive in Sonoma CA
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1967-vw-karmann-ghia-convertible/ to see this cool classic 1967 VW Karmann Ghia convertible for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California. Join us for a little test drive in this super solid, clean vintage Karmann Ghia in excellent shape. Body looks great and the new paint has a nice, deep shine. Excellent trim and chrome with lots of new rubber, crisp, clear windshield, excellent tires and brakes. Engine in excellent condition, rebuilt less than 10k miles ago with dual carburetors and runs like a champ. Shifting is tight and smooth as well. The interior still has some original patina'd areas like the original square weave rugs, giving it a nice vintage feel. Otherwise the front seats and panels have been replaced along with the headliner and newer cloth top and boot cover. The floors and rockers are super solid. Everything is in great working order. We are currently replacing the fuel sender so that will be completed at time of shipping. Important to note that 1967 is a low production year making it pretty rare since only 4,100 were built. Check out the link above for full details, pricing info and detailed photo gallery. Then give me a call with your best offer.

1969 Karmann Ghia Convertible Test Drive
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1969-karmann-ghia-convertible/ to see this classic 1969 Karmann Ghia Convertible for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California. Join us on a test drive to the Valley of the Moon Winery in this cool classic 1969 Karmann Ghia convertible. Stored inside family warehouse since 1987. Prior to entering it's 26 year rest it had been repainted and a new top was installed. I believe that the 93k miles showing are likely correct yet cannot be sure. All mechanical systems recently gone through to make the car a reliable, long-distance or daily driver. New tires also installed. Strong compression, excellent shifting and acceleration; brakes, steering all in full working order. Original equipment in correct working order including the clock. Original Sapphire X radio does not turn on but we will see if this can be remedied prior to sale. Original white interior was discolored after 45 years so we replaced the front and rear seat covers and door panels. Carpet is original. This is a good driver-quality, mostly original California car with plenty of appeal and room to improve if someone so desires. Or just enjoy exactly as-is.
