Nice build . Ok , a repaint (Earl Schieb ; "Any Car , any color" [as long as it was their excuse for paint {IMHO}] . The tires had to be leftovers from prior to 1962 when the thin whiote walls came out and made the W/W's obsolete and extinct as Dodo Birds . Just right for a Penny Pincher of the day ! Well done model . Thanx ..

What was your source for the whitewalls you used?

Parts box... have a bunch of different sized whitewalls and those matched the diameter of the stock tires....think they may have come out of an old 56 or 57 chevy kit

This came out excellent. The color looks like a 60's custom!

Makes me regret not getting one when they were in produstion.

Thanks! That is a super nice Ghia for sure. I am a total VW freak.

Great work! Love the Ghia's. Looking for the kit at shows myself. Recently came across a real one on a trip back east, it had a small block in it and a little bigger tires and wheels. Primed an other than that, very cool looking. That's what I would like to build.
