Hey VW fans let's take a late fall drive in my new '71 Karmann Ghia Convertible. This is a beauty found recently after 24 years stored in a barn - she was taken good care of though the owner would take her out each summer to clean her up. Take a look at the full description and photo and video shoot I took of this classic 1971 Karmann Ghia Convertible here: http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1971-karmann-ghia-convertible/
Give me a call if you want to take her home. Happy V-dubbin
Please give her a thumbs up and subscribe for more classic car videos!
Classic VW Karmann Ghia Convertible,1973
This short video shows the work that Last Chance Auto Restore.com
performed (so far) on this 1973 Karmann Ghia Convertible.
It begins with the disassembly, lifting the body from the chassis and
removing the engine. The body is braced and the fabrication begins.....
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

VW Karmann Ghia 1974
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, 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.

Cabriolet 1971 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. 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, becoming the car most
imported into the U.S. American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague
included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed
More than 445,000 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.

Wulf Henrichs is a passionate collector of classic cars. He decided to take
a risky venture and bought an old classic over the internet for 17,000
euros without even taking a look at it. It's a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and
