Car Feature: Home Build 1967 Karmann Ghia Sunroof

Home Build Show Stopper

Some say that, these days, Top20-winning VWs are always built by high-end restoration shops.
Well, they are proven wrong with Michel Jansens’ home-built sunroof Karmann Ghia!

> It all started when Michel joined a friend
   on his trip to EBI in Chimay...

> His father said... “If you go to that show,
   you’ll end up wanting a VW of your own!”

> Michel stripped the dash of its
   factory fake plastic wood cover
   giving the interior an older look.

> He restored the car himself and it’s
   been gathering trophy’s since day 1!

> The Golde Sunroof is not a very
   common option on a Karmann Ghia!

> Michel’s Ghia rides ultra low thanks
   to its narrowed front beam fitted with
   lowered spindles and air shocks!
