    In , I bought a Karmann Ghia coupe. I decided to dismantle it in order to restore it in the appropriate manner. It was at this stage whilst I was researching as much information on Karmann Ghia on the website that I stumbled across a reference to Karmann Ghia Company of Australia www.

    The proprietor of this company is Jerry Heldt, who I am proud to say has now become a good friend. Jerry was more than liberal with his knowledge on Karmann Ghias and I found him to be easy to talk to and always helpful.

    After discovering that his reproduction parts were second to none world wide, I realised that it would make more sense to get Jerry to restore my vehicle. So a week wouldn't pass without a phone call from me. In my weekly phone conversation with Jerry I happened to mention that I was looking at purchasing this Cabriolet. Upon sending Jerry photos of the car and its relevant numbers, Jerry confirmed that it was a genuine and that he would buy it if I didn't. After buying the vehicle it made me the 2nd person in Australia to own a Karmann Ghia Cabriolet, Jerry being the only other person in Australia.

    The vehicle required a lot of work. It was mainly just the body with some metal missing and some rust. It had incorrect floor pan, no motor, no gearbox, no interior, no glass and no hood mechanism. After purchasing the vehicle in February , I sent the body to Perth to be restored by Jerry Heldt. Although Jerry and his staff repaired, restored and rebuilt the vehicle, I researched worldwide for parts and correct detail information to help Jerry in the restoration process.

    The restoration process took approximately 3 years to complete, in which time I visited Jerry in Perth twice. The first time being also the first time I met Jerry in person. The restored car was returned to me in Adelaide in early According to the vehicles birth certificate issued by Volkswagen Stiftung AutoMuseum in Germany, my Karmann Ghia was built in , model number , 30 bhp 1. The car has been restored to the original specifications except for the color which I chose L , metallic graphite silver which was an original Karman Ghia color.

    Some of the original and often difficult to source features on the vehicle are the Firestone white wall crossply tyres; Sapphire 1 Bendix Radio; correct steering wheel and horn ring; original optional tacho and owners manual. During the restoration process I have gained a lot of knowledge on early "low light" Karmann Ghia's. The restoration process was a true collaborative effort to the point where I was able to help Jerry reproduce correct early convertible door glass, chrome hood trim, and Lack Kontrol stickers etc.

    My Karmann Ghia Cabriolet is recognised worldwide as one of the finest example of that model. Also Kevin Ferguson at Trimtec Restoration Co, for his great work in upholstery and trimming work and my good friend Tony Barnett for his encouragement and attention to detail in the area of graphics in relation to the reproduction of factory stickers, signs and artwork for the Sekurit logos on the glass.
