1971 Karmann Ghia Walk Around and Drive

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 John Snell 612-805-2428 Please give her a thumbs up and subscribe for more classic car videos! http://youtu.be/YkRpOpxWcls

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.

VOLKSWAGEN KARMANN GHIA 1600 Cabriolet 1971 - Modest test drive - Engine sound | SCC TV
Recently we came across this beautiful Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1600 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,[5] becoming the car most imported into the U.S.[5] American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed products.[6] More than 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.

1962 VW Beetle for Sale in Nice Original Condition
Visit http://www.vintagevwcars.com/1962-vw-beetle/ to see details and photo gallery about this 1962 VW Beetle for sale from Vintage VW Cars. Originally from California this 6 volt Bug is very original except for what looks to be two repaints. The car was originally black with a red interior -- a great color combination if you're looking for a car to restore. This is a pretty classic year as it still has many of the features of '50s cars. It has ice pick inner door handles, straight up and down vent windows, crank knob for the heater and other fun, older ornamental items. It has been about three years since it has been driven regularly but it seems to be excited to get back on the road. Enjoy the test drive around the neighborhood and listen to the 40 hp engine which runs great. It recently had the carburetor rebuilt and it starts, runs and idles nicely. The body is very solid for an original, unrestored car. This bug lived in California until it came here in 2001 so the body and floor pan are way above average. I sell cars sight unseen on a regular basis and I can help with shipping to your driveway. Check out the link above for more information and detailed photo gallery then make me an offer!

1967 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible for Sale
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-dodge-coronet-500/ to see my 1967 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis MN. I have owned this classic Mopar since 2008. It's a great-looking and perfect running example of a rare Coronet Convertible. Dodge did not make many Coronet convertibles, and based on the very few examples I have seen for sale over the years (mostly restoration projects), this example in such good condition is quite the find. Since I bought this Dodge Coronet back in 2008 I've had all the brakes redone (including new lines, hoses, shoes, cylinders, drums turned, etc). I also had the gas tank restored, a brand new full Exhaust fitted and installed, and lots of other work done to get this car running and driving great. The sound coming out the duel Exhaust is enough to get anyones adrenaline pumping. You'll have to check out the video below to hear the roar of the big block V8 coming out of the duel tail pipes. Take a little walk around the interior and exterior. Then click the link in the description for more information and see to the 2 detailed photo galleries - make me an offer to make this classic Coronet 500 yours!
