History Of The VW Karmann Ghia
The 1967 model year didn’t really see any major changes, but 1968 brought along a completely new Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) setup. The hardtop model received an electrically heated rear window, and the convertible model had a glass rear screen fitted. In the interests of security, the Ghia now had a locking steering column. 1969 Brought new rear lights with reversing lights built in, and a 1600cc single port motor.
In 1970 the single port 1600 was replaced by a 1600cc twin port, a few other detail changes were made including a thermostatically operated inlet pre-heater. In 1971 VW introduced the chunkier blade bumpers, and the 4 spoke collapsible steering wheel. The rest of the interior was brought up to date with dashboard and door cappings finished in a black textured plastic, the new dashboard necessitated a redesigned instrument binnacle featuring two hooded dials displaying time, speed and fuel. The heater controls were moved, new inertia seatbelts were installed and the rear lights were changed to Type 3 units. .
