1969 Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
It came with an 1835 cc motor, I replaced the dual carbs with dual Weber IDF 40's, added a crankcase breather. The compression check came out good. Otherwise motor is how I bought it.
Now for the good stuff:
I replaced the entire brake system from top to bottom: master cylinder, wheel cylinders, brake lines etc.
New wheel bearings
Rebuilt transmission ordered from rancho, 1971 version to accommodate the better clutch/wheel combo which was also replaced with a kennedy clutch (180mm I believe)
New shocks all the way around.
New Pro-built adjustable front beam with drop spindles from airkewld.com
Aftermarket oil cooler
Brand new rims and tires
Weather stripping is in pretty good shape.
Paint is good but not show quality, very little rust.
The not so good: main engine seal has a VERY slow leak. The steering has a sticky point but that might be fixed before sale. Could be an alignment issue. The car is LOW and may need to have the drop spindles replaced with regulars.
Im sure I'm forgetting something. I have more into this car then I am asking. Selling because I am too busy to drive it and work on it, and I'd rather have the money for farm projects. It has always been garaged and I just had it detailed. Please no low ballers, all reasonable offers considered. Im not in a hurry to sell.
