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.
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
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
My four classic Karmann Ghias: '73 Ghia Vert for Sale
My four classic Karmann Ghias, as you might guess the Karmann Ghia and
especially the Ghia Convertible is my favorite car. Here we have a 1962
Ghia Convertible (restoration in progress), a very original 1960 Ghia
coupe, and 2 1973 Ghia Convertibles. The Orange '73 Ghia convertible is for
This beautiful orange '73 Ghia Convertible has been with the same owner for
the past 24 years. The owner only put 3000 miles on it during the entire
time he has had it! The interior is original and in very good condition for
being original. The top even looks original and if it is original it is in
remarkable condition for its age.
The windshield still has the original VW logo and the condition of the
original interior leads me to believe that is probably the original mileage
at just over 61k.

1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Restoration
This is a 1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia I recently did the finish body work
and paint on. The sheetmetal replacement was performed by Kelly "Metwiz"
Brown. Color is Porsche Guards Red. The car is going back to the owner for
re-assembly. Music by The Wind-Ups.
Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt?
Took 45 years to bury it and almost 2 days to dig it out. Have a look.
Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the
foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging
condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since
1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free
given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for
45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE
US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one
you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053
