Kansas City to Daytona FL and back in a VW Karmann Ghia
2600 miles behind the wheel of my favorite Volkswagen. The detination was the Youtube Garage Gang Extravaganza in Daytona Florida. I was fortunate to meet and hang out with a lot of incredible Youtube Users in person. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event possible. Thanks to everyone who helped me, encouraged me and pushed me to complete my car. I could not have done it without you. This was a trip I'll remember until the day I die.





VW Karmann Ghia 1974
From Wikipedia The Type 14 debuted at the October 1953 Paris Auto Show as a styling concept created for Ghia by Luigi Segre. In the early 1950s, Volkswagen was producing its economy car, the Type 1 (Beetle). With an increase in post-war standards of living, executives at Volkswagen proposed adding a halo car to its model range, contracting with German coachbuilder Karmann for its manufacture. Karmann in turn contracted the Italian firm Ghia, who adapted styling themes previously explored for Chrysler and Studebaker to a Beetle floorpan widened by 12 in (300 mm). In contrast to the Beetle's machine welded-body with bolt-on fenders, the Karmann Ghia's body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped and smoothed with English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end manufacturers -- and resulting in the Karmann Ghia's higher price. The design and prototype were well received by Volkswagen executives, and in August 1955 the first Type 14 was manufactured in Osnabrück, Germany. Public reaction to the Type 14 exceeded expectations, with over 10,000 sold in the first year. VW Karmann Ghia Cabriolet The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14's engine displacement grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a displacement of 1584 cc, producing 60 hp (45 kW). In August 1957, Volkswagen introduced a convertible version of the Karmann Ghia. Exterior changes in 1961 included wider and finned front grilles, taller and more rounded rear taillights and headlights relocated to a higher position -- with previous models and their lower headlight placement called lowlights. The Italian designer Sergio Sartorelli,[8] designer of Type 34, oversaw the various restylings of Type 14. In 1970, larger taillights integrated the reversing lights and larger wrap-around turn signals. Still larger and wider taillights increased side visibility and at the same time large square-section bumpers replaced the smooth round originals. For the USA model only, 1973 modifications mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) included energy-absorbing bumpers. A carpeted package shelf replaced the rear seat.

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.

1965 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible for Sale
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1965-vw-karmann-ghia-convertible/ to see this great classic 1965 Karmann Ghia for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California. Nicely finished and in very good overall condition. Starts; runs and drives well with strong engine, smooth shifting, tight suspension and braking. Solid pans and no rust anywhere. Nose is nice and straight and the overall panel fitment is decent as well. There is no sign of previous damage that I can see (though after 48 years I wouldn't be surprised to find something). Looks to be an older repaint with a few flaws yet looks quite nice. Interior in excellent shape as well as the canvas top and headliner. All systems are fully operational except for the radio. I took extensive photos of the underside, nose and wheel well areas, rear inner quarters, bulkhead and all of the key areas of concern on these cars. All check out well and the car shows to be in quite superb condition for it's age - especially given the fact that it has never had a complete, rotisserie type of restoration. The bulkhead and data tag numbers match as does the title. Take a look at the link above for full details and detailed photo gallery - then give me a call with your best offer. Donn Dabney 707-332-8331 Thanks for watching this '65 Karmann Ghia walk around video - please leave a nice big thumbs up and a Like! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIHoz5b8ZIc
