    To answer the above question about Karmann Ghias....


    1955-1969 = Small round turn signals
    1970-1974 = Big ugly turn signals
    1955-1960 = Lowlight Ghia ,much more $$$ ,rare , healights are lower then the later models ,small tailights
    1966 = Lots of "one year" only parts , tough to restore correctly
    1969= Very desirable , first year for the 1600 dual port engine and independent rear suspension but it still has the round turn signals.

    Ive had my 69 for a couple of years and they are a blast....but do yourself a favor and find one with a rust free body in good shape. Check the rockers , wheel well , battery are and inside nose panel (in the trunk) for signs of damage or rust. These are hand made one piece body cars and are very prone to rust. Id rather have one with a good body and no motor rather then a rusty one with a top of the line 2400 cc turbo motor.....

    ^ and don't forget to check the floor pans for rust aswell. Everywhere I've been it has been super hard to find anything without rust at a decent price

    Thanks a lot guys. That's way more information than I expected to get back.

    I'll just have to keep an eye out for a clean body deal!

    Mine might as well be included on this action...


    check it out, I had to move the fenders up and cut 4" off of the bottom to clear the earth... the front sheet metal is still touching the pavement... sweet...



    I had to lift it some to drive it, but it still has an evil stance


    the chevelle hiding in back is in the progress of getting a redo that should gel nicely here as well.

    This was the bug posted to FB. Photoshopped, but cool nonetheless.

    I don't have any info on that Commer, but I've gotta thank you for resurrecting this thread, I probably wouldn't have seen it otherwise. This stuff is epic.
