VOLKSWAGEN KARMANN GHIA 1600 Cabriolet 1971 - Modest test drive - Engine sound | SCC TV
Recently we came across this beautiful Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1600
Cabriolet 1971 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. We took the car
for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free

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.

This super solid, clean classic VW Karmann Ghia in beautiful shape. The
body looks very nice and the new paint has a deep shine. Trim and chrome in
excellent shape with lots of new rubber, crisp, clear windshield, excellent
tires and brakes. Engine in excellent condition, rebuilt less than 10k
miles ago with dual carburetors and runs like a champ. Shifting is tight
and smooth as well. The interior still has some original patina'd areas
like the original square weave rugs, giving it a nice vintage feel.
Otherwise the front seats and panels have been replaced along with the
headliner and newer cloth top and boot cover. The floors and rockers are
super solid. Everything is in great working order. We are currently
replacing the fuel sender so that will be completed at time of shipping.
Important to note that 1967 is a low production year making it pretty rare
since only 4,100 were built.

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

This short video shows the work that Last Chance Auto Restore.com
performed (so far) on this 1973 Karmann Ghia Convertible.
It begins with the disassembly, lifting the body from the chassis and
removing the engine. The body is braced and the fabrication begins.....
