RE: [T3] ebay Ghia


Ahhh that explains a lot....that must be a Type 14 then.  There was
another one that had the same engine pictured.  It sure looked like a
tight fit, that is why I thought it did not belong there...
Thanks for clearing that up!

SteveJ=> I thought Karmann Ghias had T-3 engines....

I wasn't able to view the link you sent, but: you may not know that 
there are two quite different Karmann Ghias,  the Type 14, introduced in

'55, and the Type 34, introduced with the rest of the  Type 3 line in 
'61. Karmann built ten times as many 14s as 34s, and the Type 14 is what

almost eveyone thinks of when you say 'Karmann Ghia.' 14s have Type 1 
engines, 34s are Type 3s through and through.

(It may be a testament to the recently more vocal style of Type 34 
drivers that this question came up, but I guess we may need to share 
more pictures.)
