hello, i have a 1971 ghia coup that i am restoring. my dad bought this back in the early 90s but never did anything with it because of other projects so he gave it to me. i am 17 years old and a sophomore in high school. i have done most of everything by myself with the help of my dad occasionally. i started in may of 2011. here is what i have done: both heater channels, rockers, lower 1/4s, left headlight section, left floor support, left fresh air vent, both pan halves, under nose section, center and left engine compartment, left rear corner, and i have started bondo and primer.

Finally got a new camera so i took some pics. last few days i got the top primed and started bondo on the left fender and nose. the nose is in good shape never been hit. only had to replace the panel under neath and the left headlight ring. the engine is a 76X94 with 42X37.5 big valve heads, and a 130 cam. the pan has all been painted in por 15 black. i have a stock length select a drop front beam. and lowered about a .5 of a in in the back.

looking good Cool

i have a 71 coupe that i've owned since i was 14 years old.
i certainly didn't need to put the amount of work into it that you have, but i do remember how much cool factor that car had (and still has) when i was a youngster.

keep the pics coming Smile

I'm kinda jealous that it seams you have surpassed me bodywise. Then again I assume since your 17 you live at home. I'm 31 and my car is at my parents 30 miles away and I work 10 hour days so I only get to work 2 days a week. All my bodywork is done for the most part. Just need to sandblast the interior, going to POR-15 most of the interior panels since I am covering most of the panels with sound deadening material.

But great progress, I wish I had a sweet ghia when I was 17-18 trust me it is a hit with the ladies. My 70 rust bucket when I bought it was a hit with the college girls, so a smooth one would of been too much to handle.
