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, becoming the car most
imported into the U.S. American industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague
included the Type 14 in his list of the world's most beautifully designed
More than 445,000 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.
1969 Karmann Ghia Convertible Test Drive
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1969-karmann-ghia-convertible/ to
see this classic 1969 Karmann Ghia Convertible for sale from Left Coast
Classics in Sonoma California.
Join us on a test drive to the Valley of the Moon Winery in this cool
classic 1969 Karmann Ghia convertible. Stored inside family warehouse since
1987. Prior to entering it's 26 year rest it had been repainted and a new
top was installed. I believe that the 93k miles showing are likely correct
yet cannot be sure. All mechanical systems recently gone through to make
the car a reliable, long-distance or daily driver. New tires also
installed. Strong compression, excellent shifting and acceleration; brakes,
steering all in full working order. Original equipment in correct working
order including the clock. Original Sapphire X radio does not turn on but
we will see if this can be remedied prior to sale. Original white interior
was discolored after 45 years so we replaced the front and rear seat covers
and door panels. Carpet is original. This is a good driver-quality, mostly
original California car with plenty of appeal and room to improve if
someone so desires. Or just enjoy exactly as-is.

Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 4 - Outer Canvas
It been a long time since the last video on the install (September 2012 to
be exact). The top arrived from TMI by way of HOG and this video shows the
installation of the canvas top onto the headlined and padded frame. I will
have one more video in this series showing the finishing touches and adding
all the necessary seals around the windows.
