Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 2 - Headliner
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
(Ghiaaddict) on thesamba for his step by step tutorial. I would not have
even attempted this without his help and guidance.

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.

Another test run...at 12psi. both of the little runs in the vid are
slightly uphill with some short shifts (I'm no racer) but you get the
picture. speedo marks are at the 20,40,60,80,100mph.

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
Lowering the rear of a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia suspension
This video takes a more comprehensive look and demonstrates the lowering
and fine-tuning of the swing axle rear suspensions. Simply put, if your car
is either lowered or raised and you are not driving on Drop Plates or Raise
Plates then you are settling for an inferior and potentially dangerous
ride! Lower or raise the rear of both Swing Axle and IRS Volkswagens and
Buggies without changing the factory spring plate travel or torsion in the
system and achieve a superior ride! Atomwerk Drop/Raise Plates will restore
the factory "feel"! We did not seat-of-the-pants design our Drop Plates to
lower your vehicle, we ENGINEERED them so that your car will not lose its
ride quality after it has been lowered. Bottom line is that Drop Plates are
the only way to have a comfortable ride when your rear end is lowered. See
our tech page for greater understanding of this:
Lower your VW the right way!

Patrick McCullagh's Peugeot 106 "Retrospectrum"
Cezeli Productions brings you this funky little Peugeot 106 that was
nicknamed "Retrospectrum" after it was built. "Retrospectrum" was created
by John Peden of Peden Conceptz which is based in Lurgan, Northern Ireland.
Peden Conceptz is well known and highly regarded in the UK for some of the
best modified cars and John is always pushing the envelope as can be seen
when looking at the "Retrospectrum". The car has been featured in FastCar,
Modigied Motors and most recently in the Dail Mirror.
The 106 has Rayvern Hydraulic Suspension and sits on 13" Revolution
Minators and John designed and produced the funky RubixCube centre caps.
The amazing airbrushing was carried out by Esther Marshall aka Grafittigirl
(email@example.com). Her work included not only the bonnet
but the airbrushed seats!
Initially the car was running a diesel engine that John converted for fuel
economy. Current owner, Patrick, decided he wanted more "00mph" and Geddis
Redman done a great job of converting back to petrol, this time in the
guise of the 1600 8v engine. Patrick felt the 16v would have been a waste
in a car that is designed for show and not for go! The 100bhp is a vast
improvement over the 57bhp 1.5 diesel.
The video was shot over a series of 3 days. Two days where filmed in
Downings, Co. Donegal and the last day around Omagh, Co. Tyrone. The lovely
lady in the video is Elaine Maguire from Castlederg, Co. Tyrone. Elaine
does alot of promotional work and can be found at all the large car shows
where she has worked for Modified Motors. A final mention is for "The
Randomers" whom we met whilst shooting footage in Omagh. They loved the car
so much we had to take two different runs around the town so we had to
include them in the video :)
