1971 Volkswagen Karmann

number 1412098645 — 10/1970, Osnabrück, Germany

I the car back in June, but this is still here just for the of it (and to let me show off pictures of the old dog to who cares).

The car is in good overall what problems it does are mostly due to having sat in storage for a due to my own lack of spare time is also why the car is for sale).

The paint looks like but it’s actually a Nissan/Infiniti called Black Jade Metallic. I chose this during the original restoration in If I had it to do again I would pick a original color, but at the time it matter much (the shop said they seven coats of paint on the including the original (?) forest which you can see in the interior.

Except for some replacement the interior is mostly original. The dash pad is also new, and the grotty plastic woodgrain off, I simply painted the metal with wrinkle paint, rather than something else and risk it up. I added a VDO tachometer in place of the and the stereo hole was widened to fit a DIN unit. Unfortunately there are speaker holes in the rear (cut by the previous owner, you).

The engine is in very good order. It’s a 1600cc even though 1971 was the year for the dual-port heads. is because the car was an autostick from the and when the original engine out, the previous owner in an engine and manual transmission a 1970 Beetle.

Unflattering low-angle shot of the rear floor pan and rocker, some rust which has only recently. When I the car it had much more serious problems in the lower body, and of this was replaced with new parts. This part of the pan was not during the previous restoration; the are holding up okay.

The car looks nice, but it still needs work to be returned to daily-driver (I do know that the brakes need some attention, and are a few wiring issues that sorting out before it will likely pass inspection). let the car go for a very reasonable price to that I think will it the TLC it deserves, and if you have the time and that I can’t spare now, you’ll wind up a really nice car.
