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
This car was garaged about 44 years ago. It hasn't run since then, so it is a bit of a time capsule. Most of the rust is cosmetic. Front end being notoriously the worst rot zone of these lovely cars. Chase appears to be solid still, as do the wheel arches. But a hammer test is in need for this. It still rolls, but the breaks are binding a little. The engine hasn't been turned over in all this time, so it will be seized no doubt. It has a 6volt electrical system. The original license plate is still mounted on the front and rear. Video was taken with an iPhone and is wobbling for some reason. A selection of photos are included in the clip which give further view.
