Righty ho, time for me to be selling my Ghia.....

The car

1969 left hand drive San Francisco Imported Karmann Ghia.
Built in Osnabruck 2 Sept 1969
Left factory for San Francisco on 5 Sept 1969.

I have a Birth Cert that will go with the car giving all her details and M codes.

LOCATION

The ol girl is located in Dufftown,Morayshire Scotland.AB554AZ
i am approx 50 miles from Aberdeen Airport and 60 odd from Inverness airport.

When i the ol girl arrived at my place she had been a dry stored project for approx 10 yrs......

This linky............ 1969..US import Karmann Ghia resto - VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales will take you to my resto thread.......make a cuppa and sit in a comfy seat !!!!!

The following is a mixture of what was already done by the previous owner and what ive done myself.

CHASSIS/FLOORPAN

totally shot blasted and powder coated
undersealed several times
new hard and soft lines front to rear.
adjustable rear springplates fitted (from coolair)
floorpan is totally solid.

BODY/SHELL/DOORS/ENGINE LID/BONNET

all totally bare metalled by hand by myself.
Shell had new metal welded into the spare wheel well,lower front quarter panels
REAR LEFT QUARTER PANEL...this was replaced in the past with a complete genuine panel.
FRONT quarter panels..new metal in the lowers just in front of doors.
HEATER CHANNELS.2 or 3 small patches welded in. totally solid channels.
OG bumpers.
ALL metal was bought in Germany by myself and not the usual cheap shit panels.

ALL metalwork etch primered followed by several coats of primer and then 3 coats of her og colour,CHERRY RED.

PLEASE NOTE.......I did the bodywork and paint myself, i am NOT a pro painter by any means.....if i had to score it out of 10 i would give it a 6........

FRONT END/BEAM

4 inch narrowed Slamwerks beam WITH adjusters.
OG spindles
Brand new discs pads/brake lines
Brand new dual master clyinder
Brand new shocks

BACK END
gearbox powder coated
brand new brakes/lines
adjustable spring plates
brand new shocks

ENGINE

1641 on twin 36 dell's
I can NOT confirm engine size as i have no paperwork.
Dell's i would suggest need setting up correctly as one spits now n then....i know nothing about these type of carbs so have set them up best i can.
Engine was stripped cleaned and rebuilt by myself last year and runs great.
Brand new (yesterday) alternator fitted.

INSIDE/INTERIOR

Totally re-furbed.
insulated
Brand new NEWTON COMMERCIAL carpet set.
seats professionally re-upholstered.
dash refurbed.
OG clocks
15 inch wooden motolite steering wheel.
Brand new headliner (fitted by myself and NOT perfect)

WHEELS

5 x GENUINE Porsche Pedrini wheels,stripped and powder coated.all with brand new rubber on them.

Seals replaced where needed and brand new headlights,ive used the OG rear RED lenses using GREEN BULBS for indicators(this flashes orange and IS legal)

MOT/ROADTAX(free)

MOT is June THIS year, i have no fears about her passing the next one...if i still have the car 4 weeks before MOT date,i will renew it.

ROADTAX...obviously free but due in JUNE......again i will re-tax if i still have her.

All in all a very solid and usable Ghia which ive sunk a lot of time and effort into and not to forget a lot of money too. Ive hardly put any miles on her since completion,mainly due to the fact the alternator died on the way back from Action last year and i lost interest.

I have a lot of bits n bobs that will come with the car and an old engine that came with the car(engine WILL need re-furbed)

The car is here to sell and i wont be hard to deal with.....

no sob story,no bullshit.....im done with vee dubs so im selling up and moving onto other things now.

NO deal is done till the cash is in my hand......ive been pissed about in the past with folk saying they will have something and then come up with a bullshit excuse........so please only get in touch if you are serious.......

PRICE

£9,000 ONO.

I AM negotiable and prepared to haggle/argue what have you...as ive said the ol girl is here to sell......so dont be shy, i can only type NO.

PART-EX................NOPE,NO,NADA,NIET,NEIN.........

UNLESS

you have a V8 American hotrod or pre 1955 pickup.....project or on road.......if you have then i could be prepared to deal.

I am a shift worker so please be patient when waiting for me to reply to any questions or PM's...........i WILL get back to you....

and feel free to ask for any specific pics......i will be doing more tomorrow,to add to the 20 or 30 odd that will follow........

ALL pics taken TODAY right after i'd washed her.....she is still wet...
