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.

Driving my Karmann Ghia
The 1956 Karmann Ghia I own does get driven from time to time. I have friends who claim I 'never' drive it. This video shows that isn't the case.





VW Karmann Ghia 1974
From Wikipedia 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,[8] 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.





VW Karmann Ghia - FIRST DRIVE!!!!
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!!!

1972 VW Karmann Ghia
1972 Karmann Ghia Convertible. Great little California car, same owner for the last 8 years. Solid, straight body and very comfortable interior. Car appears to have had a couple of color changes, it was originally yellow. The body is very nice with very little filler and no rust. The passenger floor shows some rust and will need to be replaced eventually if the car is to be driven in the weather. Otherwise, drivers side is fine. The black cloth top is in nice condition as is the rear glass window. The interior is also pretty nice though the door panels are warped. The car starts and runs well. It shifts nicely and drives straight. The brakes are responsive and the suspension functions properly with good handling. Car shows 6K miles, the actual miles are unknown. Owning a classic VW is a great feeling! You'll get thumbs-up every where you go, and you'll soon realize these cars have a personality all their own. If you've ever considered buying a Ghia, or if you've had a classic VW in the past and want to rekindle that joyous, nostalgic feeling that can only come from a classic Volkswagen, then this is the car for you. Not to mention the extremely low cost of ownership, great gas mileage and the fact that these cars are only appreciating in value.
