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.





Karmann Ghia vs. Porsche 944 s2 Public Race days Hockenheim 2011
Dieser Karmann Ghia entstand in einer Nacht und Nebel Aktion. Eigentlich war der Motor für ein anderes Fahrzeug gedacht. Wie man sieht verleiht dieser Motor auch dem Karmann excellente Fahrleistungen. Die 1/4 Meile wird in 15.8 sec. gefahren.





Karmann Ghia Project
My Ghia project. Nothing like a slammed Karmann Ghia.





1969 Karmann Ghia Convertible Orng NSmyr101312
This is a really beautiful example! The engine would be the 1500 c.c. flat four with overhead valves and solid lifters...same engine that powered the venerable Beetle. True independent rear suspension this year. A closed coupe version was also available. It added Volkswagen dependability to a work of art from Karmann-Ghia!





Karmann Ghia - Shock Issues
Trying to figure out if the shocks are crap. I took them out of the system and the front end seems to work properly. Is there a break in period for shocks?





vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still, when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this stylish milestone of automotive history.
