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.

1963 Volkswagen Ghia Project "The Cartoon Car" as Savanna calls it.
We took this little Ghia in on trade towards a 1969 VW Highroof Camper that we just sold. It is a very rust free little car but has been resprayed a non original color. Plan is to get it running and driving and then see what happens. We have a couple people interested in this car and it should be for sale soon. Thanks for watching.
