Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Brakes

The brake system on your classic Karmann Ghia may be straightforward compared to those on modern cars, but it’s no less important, and care should be taken at all times to keep it in the best condition possible. That includes periodically checking it over and replacing your VW Karmann Ghia brake fluid every couple of years. Though classic Karmann Ghia brake parts can basically be broken down into drum brakes and disc brakes, there is a lot of variety in the VW Karmann Ghia parts that were fitted over the years, and with so many cars having been modified it is important you know exactly what is fitted to your car before ordering any replacement parts. If in any doubt as to what sort of brake system you have, consult one of our knowledgeable sales staff who will be happy to guide you in the right direction.

Heritage Parts Centre offer a huge range of VW Karmann Ghia brakes for every age and model, as well as a comprehensive range of brake upgrade parts and performance items. We stock everything from standard Karmann Ghia drum brake parts to high performance disc brake conversions from CSP, CB Performance and EMPI in a variety of stud patterns to suit all requirements. We not only sell our products online but our expert team can provide free advice on compatibility, fitting and the different options available. Browse and buy the parts you need from our links above, or read on for further information about our air-cooled VW brake systems.

Looking to buy VW Karmann Ghia brakes?

Prior to 1967 all air-cooled VWs had five-bolt wheels and Karmann Ghias were fitted with drum brakes all round. In 1967 front disc brakes and vented four-bolt wheels were introduced at the front (Beetle rear disc brake kits were never fitted from the factory). If you have a later model Karmann Ghia, always check which types of front brakes are fitted before ordering brakes and parts.

Naturally, we here at Heritage Parts Centre stock a complete range of service and replacement parts for both disc brake and air cooled drum brake systems, including brake shoes, calipers, pads, brake backing plates, wheel cylinders, hoses and drum brake fitting kits, plus a wide selection of Volkswagen Karmann Ghia drums and discs in different bolt patterns depending on the wheels you want to use.

We also supply a large selection of aftermarket brake parts and upgraded performance Karmann Ghia disc brake conversions, included Goodridge hoses, EMPI, Tarox, CSP and CB Performance VW disc brake conversion kits, and a wide range of classic VW discs and drums with different wheel bolt or stud patterns, making this the simplest way to undertake VW to Porsche / Chevy / Jag wheel conversions. Add in stock and performance brake master cylinders, replacement brake fluid reservoirs and, while we’re on the subject of brakes, don’t forget we also hold stock of everything you could need to overhaul your classic air-cooled Karmann Ghia handbrake system.
