The seller does not mention his motivation on the conversion, but does say it is a mish mash of various years Karmann Ghia parts and has many of them listed: 1958 bug headlights, 1965 Karmann Ghia taillights, louvred hood, new tires, new rubber front and rear glass, new radio, and a new exhaust. These details are still on the to do list include: door panels, blinkers need to be hooked up, some welding in the wheel wells, paint situation, and shocks/springs need replacing to fix bouncy ride due to cut springs.
The car has a Cabrio interior and gauges mounted in a Karmann Ghia dash. A fancy skull patterned material was used to cover the dash top and rear parcel shelf. This pattern probably wasn't in stock at the local Jo-Ann Fabric store. There is no mention if the rear engine compartment is functional as a trunk or what exactly is in that space.
Cory is nearly finished with his 1995 Mercedes E36 wagon and already starting in on a 1991 E36 coupe.
