OH YEAH!!! After 18 years of cutting, grinding, welding, filling, sanding, sanding, sanding, priming, painting, buffing, fixing, wiring, trimming, sweating, cussing, smiling, crying, talking, screaming, farting and everything else it takes to dismantle and restore a car, the Karmann Ghia moved again for the first under it's own power. The feeling? AWESOME!!!

Very Original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for Sale
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1960-vw-karmann-ghia/ to see this
fantastic original 1960 VW Karmann Ghia for sale by Sunset Classics in
This unique example has only 20k original miles and it still retains the
original factory tires from 1960! The interior is original with the
exception of new carpet, and the little Karmann Ghia still sports its
original 36 hpr engine.
Stepping into this Karmann Ghia is like stepping into a time machine. The
ivory knobs and the ornamental chrome trim is straight out of the '50s (and
1960 of course). The "whirr" of the engine paints a smile on anyone's face
who is lucky enough to hear it. You can be proud driving this beauty no
matter what your destination.
The paint is not original but the paprika red and white color scheme is.
The floor pans look to be original and they are in good shape. At some
point there was some body work done to the panels just before the rear
wheels. The trunk is nice and the rear quarter panels look to be original
and they are in great shape. As you can see from the photos there is some
rust around the headlights and in front of the passenger side rear wheel.
But the paint and car look great overall, and these areas could be touched
up if desired.
The story history of this cute little car is both interesting and
extraordinary - check out the full story at the link above as well as
detailed photo gallery and more video. Then give me a call to claim her for

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
Karmann Ghia - Upholstering the VW Visors
How I rebuilt and recoverd my sun visors. Most VW visors are built
similarly. I coated the fiberboard with fiberglass resin, then covered
them using some 1/8" landau foam, and tweed fabric to match the headliner
that will be used in the car.

Coast Classics in Sonoma California.
Join us for a little test drive in this super solid, clean vintage Karmann
Ghia in excellent shape. Body looks great and the new paint has a nice,
deep shine. Excellent trim and chrome with lots of new rubber, crisp, clear
windshield, excellent tires and brakes. Engine in excellent condition,
rebuilt less than 10k miles ago with dual carburetors and runs like a
champ. Shifting is tight and smooth as well. The interior still has some
original patina'd areas like the original square weave rugs, giving it a
nice vintage feel. Otherwise the front seats and panels have been replaced
along with the headliner and newer cloth top and boot cover. The floors and
rockers are super solid. Everything is in great working order. We are
currently replacing the fuel sender so that will be completed at time of
shipping. Important to note that 1967 is a low production year making it
pretty rare since only 4,100 were built.
