Re: Puma help

Jim,
All South African build Pumas are based on shortened Beetle pans.
Karmann Ghias were never officially sold through VW in South Africa so the floorpans and associated parts were not available. Hence before Puma production started, the body was modified to fit readily available Beetle pans and also converted to a RH dash layout. The sills are a lot wider to fit on the narrower Beetle pans.
Regards Frank

Purring Pumas in the USA has manuals and parts.
Running gear and parts like shifter bushings are standard VW.
