Suraj’s 66 Karmann Ghia Coupe with RHD conversion
This 66 Karmann Ghia Coupe was bought from us by Suraj and as usual the body was stripped and blasted to show all the areas needing attention. It has had a new nose, new heater channels and the most of the bottom 6” replaced all around the car. We have replaced all the sections of the bodywork with fresh metal and also carried out one of our RHD dash conversions
this car won a Top 20 award at the 2019 Volksworld show
The chassis has had 2 new floorpan halves and also a rhd conversion, we have replaced all brake lines and coated the chassis in 2 pack gloss black paint .
The car utilises it’s original swing axle gearbox which has been refurbished to factory specifications for a 1600 gearbox and powdercoated black along with the axle tubes and brake backing plates.
The standard engine has been upgraded to a1600cc unit which has been detailed in the factory style of the original unit with fresh powdercoated tinware and ancillaries.
The interior is being trimmed in a standard style but with charcoal carpets and two tone seat covers and door cards of course the one year only 66 dash trim!
