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.

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

even attempted this without his help and guidance.

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

We love the rare and unusual, be it production automobiles, motorcycles,
kit cars or home builts. With our 1957 La Dawrie Q.T./Karman Ghia with a
'50s customized body and unusual hydraulics, rare is hardly the right word.
One-off, one of one might be a better description. We have included a brief
history of the La Dawrie custom bodies below. Here are a few choice details
about this car. Perhaps most importantly, it runs and drives very well! The
warmed over VW engine moves this lightweight car down the road, with good
handling and braking. The La Dawrie Q.T. body has been cleverly customized,
with a 1955 Packard Clipper the inspiration for the rear tailfins (with
actual '55 Clipper Taillamp lens), and the unique, 1957 Packard Hawk design
clearly visible in the nose and even the rear end treatment. I can see a
little early Corvette rear end and Devin or Ferrari 250 GTO in the front
end. In the true spirit of custom car builders of this era, the car has
unique, electric motor actuated front suspension/ride height, hood and rear
engine lid, the later utilizing '50s passenger car convertible top motors!
The quality of the fiberglass custom work is done to a very high standard,
the the La Dawrie body is in excellent condition, with little cracking or
flaws. The chassis and drivetrain are tried and true VW Karmann Ghia. The
car is titled as a 1957 Karmann Ghia. This car was recently purchased by
Giordano's Vintage Motors, after comming out of storage since the 1980s. We
are discussing the completion of the interior, dash and light paint
restoration as needed. This car runs and drives very well, is incredicbly
rare, and is for sale. La Dawri History: The LaDawri Q.T. Custom & larger,
Conquest was designed and built by Les A. Dawes of British Columbia, Canada
and is recognized as Canada's first fiberglass sports car. The Conquest was
first shown at the Pacific International Exhibition at Vancouver Canada in
1956 as the Cavalier. Original plans were to create a complete sports car
for sale and distribution throughout the United States and Canada. The body
itself is fiberglass and was designed to take a wheelbase of 100 to 104
inches and a tread of 56 to 58 inches. This covered Corvettes,
Thunderbirds, and the like of the day. However, within a year, the car,
family, and company moved to Long Beach California where production began
and the car debuted on the front cover of Road &Track in July 1957. From
this point forward, the car was known as the "Conquest". Soon, Dawes
expanded both the number of designs available and the sizes of each design
as well. New models included Quest Q.T., Daytona, Sebring, and Del Mar.
