1967 Karmann Ghia Convertible | Dr. Anne's Ghia

1960 Volkswagen Panel Bus

Before

They say that patience is a virtue. Given that, Dr. Anne must be practically up for sainthood. Fifteen years into this restoration project, it was like it had been frozen in time… after some initial bodywork was complete (pretty good work, too!), it just sat there, silently wishing it could come to the Darkside to be finished and ready to drive.

She had some options. Know those pictures on Facebook of Beetles turned into chicken coops? With 100 chickens at home, technically, the might have worked. Of course, she could have scrapped it – like many folks suggested. But replacing this rare model with one that’s already restored? Good luck with that!

Maybe we’ll name it Rip Van Winkle? Sleeping Beauty?

After

This will be one gorgeous Ghia (aren’t they all?) – and one that’s well worth all the years of waiting. You can follow along with the build and watch this convertible come back to life.

Here are some of the juicy details planned for this restoration project:

  • 1776 cc engine
  • 3-way Flyer transmission
  • Front disc brakes
  • TMI interior (black)
