1SICGHIA intro

Post by 1SICGHIA on Thu Aug 15, 2013 2:47 pm

Hey All,

I've been in ATL about 2 years now and had my car shipped here about a year ago. Looking to finally get it done.


My Ghia is a 65 wild custom that I started as a 15 year old. I haven't had much time to work on it over the past 7 years, but hope to get it road ready soon.

About the Ghia:
Chopped 3 1/2 inches
Rear window from a 57 bug
suicide doors
bug headlights
Frenched 59 caddy tail lights
RHD
shaved everything
Air Bagged
Tubbed with 3 inch shortened axles in the rear
1.9 litre run either turbo or dual carbed
4 wheel disc brakes
Porsche cookie cutter rims
Frenched license plate

I am sure there is much more to list that I can't quite remember. I did all the work either by myself or with help from friends back in California. I love to do body and paint (not so much mechanical).

Look forward to meeting you all and finding out about shows and get togethers.

Hey anyone want to help me get the ghia back on the road? I am looking for someone who is mechanically inclined who may want to put in one or two days helping me get the ghia road ready in exchange for me helping you with body/fabrication/paint/etc work for one or two days.

I live near Dunwoody and would be willing to head to your place or do it at mine to help you on the body work side (I have most of the body work tools and welder at my place). The ghia is not mobile so you would have to come to my place to help me with it.

I need to bleed brakes and hydraulic clutch, tune motor, button up the air ride suspension, little bit of electrical, and some other misc stuff.

Any help appreciated
