Volkswagen made this sweet 1968 Karmann Ghia for fun road trips. The 1.6L aircooled 4 cylinder motor and 4 speed manual transmission. A custom burgundy paint job with old school pinstripe will make this car stand out in any parking lot. A tan interior is the perfect accent color for this car. The AM/FM/CD radio lets the tunes play while you cruise down the road. Custom wheels and radial tires give this Karmann Ghia exactly what it needs.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
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!!!

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.

We love the rare and unusual, be it production automobiles, motorcycles,
kit cars or home builts. With our 1957 La Dawrie Q.T./Karman Ghia with a
'50s customized body and unusual hydraulics, rare is hardly the right word.
One-off, one of one might be a better description. We have included a brief
history of the La Dawrie custom bodies below. Here are a few choice details
about this car. Perhaps most importantly, it runs and drives very well! The
warmed over VW engine moves this lightweight car down the road, with good
handling and braking. The La Dawrie Q.T. body has been cleverly customized,
with a 1955 Packard Clipper the inspiration for the rear tailfins (with
actual '55 Clipper Taillamp lens), and the unique, 1957 Packard Hawk design
clearly visible in the nose and even the rear end treatment. I can see a
little early Corvette rear end and Devin or Ferrari 250 GTO in the front
end. In the true spirit of custom car builders of this era, the car has
unique, electric motor actuated front suspension/ride height, hood and rear
engine lid, the later utilizing '50s passenger car convertible top motors!
The quality of the fiberglass custom work is done to a very high standard,
the the La Dawrie body is in excellent condition, with little cracking or
flaws. The chassis and drivetrain are tried and true VW Karmann Ghia. The
car is titled as a 1957 Karmann Ghia. This car was recently purchased by
Giordano's Vintage Motors, after comming out of storage since the 1980s. We
are discussing the completion of the interior, dash and light paint
restoration as needed. This car runs and drives very well, is incredicbly
rare, and is for sale. La Dawri History: The LaDawri Q.T. Custom & larger,
Conquest was designed and built by Les A. Dawes of British Columbia, Canada
and is recognized as Canada's first fiberglass sports car. The Conquest was
first shown at the Pacific International Exhibition at Vancouver Canada in
1956 as the Cavalier. Original plans were to create a complete sports car
for sale and distribution throughout the United States and Canada. The body
itself is fiberglass and was designed to take a wheelbase of 100 to 104
inches and a tread of 56 to 58 inches. This covered Corvettes,
Thunderbirds, and the like of the day. However, within a year, the car,
family, and company moved to Long Beach California where production began
and the car debuted on the front cover of Road &Track in July 1957. From
this point forward, the car was known as the "Conquest". Soon, Dawes
expanded both the number of designs available and the sizes of each design
as well. New models included Quest Q.T., Daytona, Sebring, and Del Mar.

BackyardBuild Summer 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of
the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy
primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW
beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior,
but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the
3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The
last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...

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.
