The engines and trans in air cooled were like mopeds or lawn mowers, stupid simple, just remember to adjust the valves, especially cyl 3, that one gets hot...the body's on the Ghia were leaded from the factory, a true work of art, but a BITCH to repair if hit, especially the nose. :/ But such a sexy car, unfortunately rust never sleeps, and they all went away here. You had the elegant bumpers.....that car makes me drool. :) Happy you got to own it. Kudos to Karmen Coach works, thank you for all you did, I had a '71 super convert, of all the 70 odd cars I have owned, that one was and will always be my favorite, simple, beautiful and so much of a joy to drive. Nothing like the computerized monstrosities that pass for cars today. It was not fast it was semi reliable, but I could always fix it, leaked oil like a sieve, my dad nicknamed it the Exxon Valdez, but it always ran, top down wind in the hair, cheap stereo, I was never happier with a car. I even soft seized it, the oil cooler seals went, locked up so tight it skidded the rear wheels, 'till I got the clutch in, let it cool added oil and went home to tear it apart. It had been an auto stick, what an abomination, but when swapped the clutch cable tube was welded into the tunnel, but they never added the rubber grommets on the ends, so I went through a cable a year until I learned that...new cars are "better" but no where near as fun, what with neutral safety switches, fuel injection, heaters, all the modern bs, but nowhere near as much fun as a manual stearing stick shifting ancient ride. If I lived in a dry state where they did not dump rock salt on the roads to combat the ice storms, I would daily a '70's air cooled bug. :) :) Seeing your's made me very happy.
