Meet Gidget ~ A 1966 Karmann Ghia

This is Marie & Avi Jerchower's 1966 Ghia, Gidget. They have owned this gem for 9 months now. Marie & Avi traded their 68 notch for her. Gidget still sports her original 1300 heart. The engine has been rebuilt to stock with just a few tweaks such as , electronic ignition, glasspak exhaust and a super cool, cold air induction. The interior is a work in progress. The interior is original. They have added new carpets while still retaining the OG floor mats. They have also added a vintage Superior green metalflake steering wheel, bamboo tray and super neat o vintage Japanese tach. Gidget sports about 50% of her original paint. Marie & Avi added the gold metalflake roof as well. The suspension is a 6" narrowed and adjustable beam with dropped spindles. The rear has been dropped about 2 clicks. NO AIR RIDE HERE!!
