1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia & 1966 Volkswagen bug Drag Racing Racelegal.com 3-23-2012

Friday night at racelegal.com drag racing a 1973 volkswagen karmann ghia with a 2352 and a 1966 volkswagen beetle with a 2187 air cooled engine. The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is a 2+2 coupe and convertible marketed from 1955 to 1974 by Volkswagen -- combining the chassis and mechanicals of the Type 1 (Beetle), styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia, and hand-built bodywork by 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 selected the Type 14 for his list of the world's most beautifully designed products.[6] Over 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. The Volkswagen Beetle, officially called the Volkswagen Type 1 (or informally the Volkswagen Bug), is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured[6] in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world.

1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is temporary.

Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück. 50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of Osnabrück in northern Germany. This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official video off the anniversary.

VW Karmann Ghia - Dual Carb Decklid Spring FIX
This is how you solve the age old problem of decklid springs hitting the aircleaners on your dual Kadron carborators in your Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Buy a couple K&N E-3220 filters. They are about $30 each, and yes that is expensive, but they are the last two airclearners you will ever have to buy for your ghia. I am using the EMPI intake manifolds, so this is the WORST CASE SCENERIO and it works. The stock Kadron aircleaners are 3-1/2" tall. The K&N filters are 2" tall.





A Stunning UK VW Karmann Beetle 1500 Cabriolet with Just One Former Keeper. SOLD!
SORRY NOW SOLD - SIMILAR WANTED A stunning UK VW Karmann Beetle 1500 Cabriolet with just one former keeper. EQUIPMENT Chrome window trim, chrome bumpers, chrome headlamp rings, bright belt line and bonnet strip, ashtrays front and rear, chrome door handles and escutcheons, running boards, Karmann badges, hood cover, hazard lights, interior light, headlight flasher, fresh air vents, sill vents, glove box, driver and passenger door pocket, grab handle, twin sunvisors, MW/LW radio. Optional extras; chrome full wheel covers. EXTERIOR The unmodified and original nature of this delightful UK RHD Karmann Beetle poses as a huge testament to the cherished ownership this example has enjoyed. Finished in Volkswagen Pastel White (code L90D) the gleaming paintwork boasts a bright pure shine and is guaranteed to please onlookers. The vehicle is structurally excellent with no evidence of weld repairs, and the beautifully fitting panels are straight and free from corrosion or damage. All chrome bumpers and trim pieces are pristine and aid the appeal of this car immensely. A quality recent replacement hood is in perfect order and the matching hood cover with white piping completes the outfit. A motoring icon through and through with added open top fun in abundance. INTERIOR The black leatherette interior having had a retrim is in excellent order with surprising comfort on offer! The factory fitted thin steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest and horn bar is remarkably well preserved. All matching door cards and black rubber floor mats are intact but are the original 44 year old items so do show signs of wear. The sunvisors have discoloured over time. Original features such as the dashboard ashtray with gear shift diagram and the working factory fitted radio are a delight to see. A humble, pleasant and functional classic interior, hugely reminiscent of a simpler motoring era. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The original air-cooled rear mounted engine is housed in a beautifully clean engine bay with an emphasis on originality and meticulous maintenance clearly evident. A power output of 53bhp and 78.1ib.ft of torque from its 1493cc displacement delivers a top speed of 78mph and 32mpg, whilst the unmistakable VW Beetle engine note is delightfully pronounced but completely unobtrusive. The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox is positive, light and smooth having benefitted from a brand new clutch in October 2014. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The original pressed steel wheels are dressed in brilliant optional chrome full wheel covers and shod in matching quality 165/80 R15 tyres with excellent tread remaining. Only very superficial and minor age related markings are evident upon close inspection. Dual circuit drum brakes front and rear operate freely, offering modest stopping power when compared to modern vehicles, exactly as they were made! HISTORY FILE Registered new on 20th August 1970 this example was supplied by Volkswagen Main Dealer Tom England and Sons Ltd of Liverpool to original owner Mr Henry Barton. The original sales invoice details a purchase price of £1,025.83 including optional extra wheel trims at £5.00 and road tax at £20.83. A supplying dealer tax disc holder remains in the screen and is a delightfully original touch. Incredibly Mr Barton remained the vehicles only owner throughout its lifetime, initially using the car as his everyday vehicle and in later years just for family holidays and weekend trips. Upon his passing this year the vehicle was left to his daughter Victoria Barton-Jones, none of this however before his pride and joy was used as transport for her wedding! Perhaps even more amazing is the registration to Victoria took place on 20th August 2014, exactly 44 years to the day after it was first registered! The history file further consists of the original VW Service Record displaying many stamps, warranty card and vehicle data cards as well as a huge collection of previous MOT’s, a stack of old tax discs and a collection of receipts and invoices. Having covered a fully verified 86,432 miles from new, this cherished example has wanted for nothing and is ready to become the next lucky owner’s new pride and joy. Tax exempt, MOT August 2015, HPI Clear, Approved Used Car Check Certificate.
