The car currently has a gearbox with four-stud drums and (too) long rear axels...I found out that the cheapest and easiest way to fix this, was to buy a complete new gearbox....
This 'box turned up not far from home, a '64 box from a beetle - and will fit right in. Sandblasted and primed, it will be a nice piece to restore as well =)

The car's original heater channels are completely rusted away.....so new had to be purchased. New channels at a fair price was sourced at the CSP shop in Germany. Fresh metal always looks good, now it is just a matter of time and patience to weld them in..

Not much is happening to the car these days....another project has to be finished first. But could not resist the chance when a friend called from a local "vintage shop". The guy at the shop did not have carparts in general, but he had these headlights he said was for a vw beetle. It was of course not for a beetle, but could it really be for a Ghia? It was impossible to tell over the phone, even with a few MMS, but I asked my friend to give him an offer, which the accepted. And what do you know....they fit! =)
Was happy to have these, they were missing when I bought the car.
A lot of potential....and a lot of work....! =)
