This V8 Powered Ghia Looks Like A 911 Turbo Stung By Bees

It hasn't been confirmed on the CDC website, but rumor has it there is some sort of virus going around that makes people put their favorite classic car body on top of a V8 powered tube frame. The thrice painted BMW 2002 Cobra featured last month has a competitor for the "what is hiding under that sheet metal" trophy.

Find this 1967 Volkswagen Karmann Gia Type 14 with Covette Suspension & Ford 5.0 V8 for sale. It looks like a seriously tubbed/flared Karmann Ghia and retains little of the original Volkswagen parts and is riding on some kind of tube frame chassis and a C4 Corvette suspension. DT Commenter Mark Geoffriau made the astute comment: Looks like a 911 Turbo that got stung by several hundred wasps.

Power comes from a Ford 5.0 liter V8 mounted up front and probably putting out around 300-325 horsepower. Power gets put to the Vette rear end via a Borg-Warner T-5 manual transmission.

The passenger compartment has little in relation to a normal Ghia because just about every part needs to be custom fabricated when dealing with something this insane - and the inside bears a striking resemblance to the BMW 2002 Cobra.
