A true classic - Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Wulf Henrichs is a passionate collector of classic cars. He decided to take
a risky venture and bought an old classic over the internet for 17,000
euros without even taking a look at it. It's a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and
spent most of its life in the United States.

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
My 1974 Karmann Ghia
This is my 1974 Ghia. It was a hunk of junk when I first purchased it. Five
years later after taking it compleatly apart it's now my favorite toy. 87mm
pistons too. The gauges on the dash are VDO, but I purchased three "BUS"
fuel gauges from junkyards. I removed the chromes rings and installed them
on the new VDOs. Now they match the originals on the dash.

and paint on. The sheetmetal replacement was performed by Kelly "Metwiz"
Brown. Color is Porsche Guards Red. The car is going back to the owner for
re-assembly. Music by The Wind-Ups.
vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.

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
Thanks for watching - please drop a big 'ol thumbs up and a Like on this
mighty cool original Ghia for sale.
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. See it at
