Oh i dunno...Ghias are horrible to work on as you can't get the wings off without resort to an angle grinder.
Probably the same as your Kabrio come to think of it. :-D

It's got the lowlight front and the facelift rear. Quite easy to change the rear light apertures to the smaller lowlight versions. What year does the vin number reveal Rob? Looks like it has remnants of a dash pad which would indicate a '59.
