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.

SCC: Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1600 Cabriolet 1971 - Prueba de manejo - Test Drive
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.

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. Donn Dabney 707-332-8331 Thanks for watching our Karmann Ghia test drive video - please leave a nice big thumbs up and a like on this very cool classic Ghia!
