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.
Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 2 - Headliner
A step by step of how I installed the custom tweed headliner from Mike at
House of Ghia (made by TMI) in my 1974 VW Karmann Ghia. Thanks to Vince
(Ghiaaddict) on thesamba for his step by step tutorial. I would not have
even attempted this without his help and guidance.

Convertible Top Installation: 1969 - 1970 Cougar / Mustang
In this episode, we tackle the daunting task of installing a convertible
top on a 1969 Mercury Cougar. Instead of stumbling through it ourselves,
we watch a professional do the installation and take note of some of the
details and tricks involved in the process. Javier was there to help and
translate, and the end result was a great looking black convertible top.
Parts we used in the video can be found in the convertible top section of

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.

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.

Karmann Ghia - Sound Insulation Install
I was planning to install carpet today, started by installing the
insulation and was suckered into completing the heating system... Bad
news, no carpet got installed, good news, the duct work is complete and a
few oddball items have been checked off the punch list.
