Sorry for the late reply. No WiFi in my flat as yet, moving in problems....

I've been over and looked at the floors. I will change them. It looks OK on the top but the underside shows it for what it is. Looks a bit like a patched quilt.

Lots to come soon....!

Are you on Facebook? I always find it easier to reach him that way....if not, I can send him a message to contact you via email. Your call…..or I can give you his phone # and you can just call him if you like.

Is Dooder still active on the forum?  I seem to recall his proper name was Dean Wilhite? 

I would like to have an idea if he is active before sending a PM via the forum to see if he knows the car or might be willing to check on it for me.

Kind of lining up my ducks before contacting the seller to verify the car is still available.

When it's a checkbook restore then anything is possible.

Yeah, no question some of the prices on some of the cars sold on BaT defy logic...…

80 Large spent on restoration? How? Was there a 50 large rebate left in the glovebox?

If you read some of these descriptions, where someone has spent $10K tp $15K on a service that included an oil change, brake flush and a "tune up" it makes you wonder......

I must be missing something. 

A couple of days ago a Karmann Ghia sold on BaT for …. $43K.    :-[     Mind you, this was said to be a nice Karmann Ghia - one in which $80K (!) was spent to restore it.   :-\


Hey I like KGs.  When I was in high school a friend of mine had one, and his brother had another.  I think they are very elegantly styled and I love the thin-pillar roof line on the hardtops.  I remember fondly a 800 mile trip with 4 other teenagers all of us stuffed into one Karman Ghia - the car fighting a losing battle in trying to maintain highway speed as we drove into strong head winds in rural Iowa.

But WTF?!   Forty-three fricken large on a later model KG?!  (and it's one with the big bumpers, too!)

The pedal box for a sedan may be the same for either side. I know that moke ones differ for each side.
