Ghia in Avondale...

Postby BobNorman » Jul 4th, 2013, 11:55 am

I recall hearing about this one being spotted out there about 10 years ago. Does anyone know if it's still there or how to reach the owner? The body was completely rotted as I recall, but I'm going to need a parts car for my 66 and there may be some things of use to me.

Bob get in touch with Steve Higdon. I think he was the last person I heard of that looked at that car when it was advertised for sale. There's a Ghia on Bell Island as well. Dubnut vogn member can get you more info on that one. A few months ago a guy posted a picture of a Ghia on the west coast rotting away as well. He posted it on the Debris Automotive FB page. I'm not sure if you are on that group or not. If you aren't I can add you.

i found the pictures. Maybe you can id a location from the background. Note the house in background.
The pictures were taged as '66 ghia, guess its a '66. Keys are in it, drive it away. :)

I saw this car with Steve and Gerry in Oct '02. Looks like these are their pics, Steve's honda is in the bg.
I know where it was at that time.
I don't think it was there last time I looked last year..

At the time you could look in the right front wheel well and see the tread on the left rear tire.

Yeah, knowing these cars, I figured it'd actually be worse that it looks in the pictures, ie: toast. I'm just looking for a parts car for mine.

I could use the gearbox side axles, bearing covers etc. to narrow my notch, if you find it.

Yeah, I've been talking to him. He sent me pics. I don't believe it to be worth the $500 that he is firm on. I may contact him again later on. Really the only usable bit for me would be the dash trim if it's still there... Thanks for letting me know though.
