Ghia Owners Roll Call...

Post by ASBug on Tue Dec 17, 2013 1:21 pm

OK,
I have seen more Ghias on this site in the past 6 months than ever before so I think we need a Ghia specific place to post up about our cars...
I have owned 3 ghias and have only driven 1 of them, so my knowledge here is limited.
I think we should put:
-City in which you live.
-What Ghia(s) you own.
-Any special things about your Ghia (i.e. lifted with 33's under it with a Merc. unimog frame... Shocked )
-Any thing else you want to put.
-Photos make people smile.

There are a lot of little unique parts and techniques when working on a Ghia that we all could benefit from sharing.

Anyway, let see if this gets any traction... I'll let other's post before I put in mine so it doesn't look like a commercial for my vert... LOL.

John Albrycht - Gray, GA

61 vert Ghia under restoration - will have a remove-able hard top, 14 inch smoothies, dropped a couple of inches, mostly original. Trying to decide between blue and red.

72 Ghia under restoration - excellent body will be mostly stock

63 Ghia Will probably part out due to major rust issues

Have a couple of ghia parts cars if anyone needs parts

2 - 70 Ghia Verts - massive rear end damage to one. Trying to take two and make 1

Will post pictures later

Nice, I wish the 69 had wide 5, but I do like the disk brakes...

I like the stance. What did you do to get it to sit like that?

Darrell
Bugs4Christ Member
Warner Robins, GA
70 Ghia.
Painted Hot Rod Black with red rally stripe between the chrome.  Wing on the rear deck lid, but I just took it off to give to one of our teenagers who's rebuilding a Ghia also...he loved the wing more than me, so I gave it to him.

About to change the red stripe to Blue to match the new rims I just got for it, and the blue 70 tag, and the blue VW courtesy light when you open the doors.
