  1. Hi ya'll,

    I thought i would show my new ride off in there as it is still, well sort of a late bay! its a 1979 Gypsy Safari Karmann Ghia !

    Brazilian coach built beauties (in my eyes anyway) they started production with number 100 up to 550 as you can see mine is badged as number 196 so 96 of the line, theses early ones came with a type 3 1600 motor until 82 when they changed them to a type 1 motor! they are funny mix with splitty steering column and type 3 brakes, have a contact with one in Brazil who informs me there are only around 120 units left (Known) but would love to know if anyone else has one! i know there are a few of the Gypsy touring module in uk (without the bed over the cab)

    anyway see what you think!

    Also have a look at the OG brochure i have with it! awesome

    cheers jai.

    Love it! A mate of mine has a Jurgens. Think I'm growing a bit of a soft spot for the coachbuilt vans.

    I like that, although if I should show it to Ms.T I know I'll be told I don't.
