FOR SALE 1964 RHD Karmann Ghia Type 34 Coupe

 
Karmann Ghia Type 34
RHD Manual
1600cc
Milage: 77,000
 

Blue-White Roof (L289) over Sea Blue (L360) with original Ice Blue Interior.
A well-known Type 34 and published on T34 World as a “Model Ambassador” https://www.t34world.org/1964 “These 1964 models are some of the best original restored T34s in the world today.  They have original interiors, stock height, original rims/wheels, and have been carefully preserved”.

The Type 34 was built from September 1961 to July 1969 during that 8 year period only 42,505 were built and of those it is estimated only 5,525 were RHD. There are thought to be only around 2,500 Type 34s left with only an estimated 200 RHDs left in the World this being one of them. None were officially exported to the USA.

The Type 34 was Volkswagen’s flagship model of the entire Volkswagen range of the ‘60’s. It was the most expensive VW available, the fastest, and the most luxurious. It was fitted with such standard equipment as a cigar lighter, an electric clock, locking steering column, front and rear vent windows, variable wiper controls and a luxurious interior. It was one of the first production cars that you could order with an electrically operated sliding sunroof. It also had the distinction of being the only VW fitted with built in fog lights.

Manufactured with a beautifully hand crafted body on a standard Type 3 chassis and running gear with the 1964 model year being the first year when the new more powerful 54hp “S” engine was fitted. It has dual carburettors, domed-topped pistons with a higher compression ratio and was capable of 100mph. The Type 34 Karmann Ghia was marketed and aimed at the luxury end of the market. 

This carefully preserved car is one of the best “original restored T34s in the World today” with “original interiors, stock height, original rims/wheels, and have been carefully preserved”.

The car comes with an extensive history file with MOT Certificates dating as far back as 1967 and receipts dating as far back as 1973 together with tax discs, some articles including a copy of VolksWorld magazine June 2007 when there was a 5 page feature “Look Sharp” with the car referred to on the front cover as “could this be the best Type 3 Ghia in the UK?” it also comes with some charming memorabilia including a pristine copy of the car’s English version of the original Sales Brochure as well as an English version of the Karmann Ghia Sales brochure from the era.

The car that has had several club members in it’s history was previously owned. Chris Wright restored the car around 2007 including having a replica 1600 engine block made and used all the original parts from the original car. The car was subject to a full respray with all the original parts being reinstalled.

Due to its rarity this car is an appreciating classic that is also sublime and having covered only 77,000 is a joy to drive and as well as being a very unusual and rare it’s an extremely usable and comfortable classic car.

FOR SALE 1970 LHD Karmann Ghia Type 14 Coupe

 
Karmann Ghia Coupe
LHD Semi Automatic
1600cc
MOT 13.11.19
Milage: 66832
 
Imported from California in the summer of 2019 – Registered here 1.10.19 with the help of Californian Classics St Leonards on Sea who carried out mainly cosmetic work, including new carpets, seals, radio etc.
 
There are some areas where some TLC would help her cosmetically.  She was resprayed to front and passenger side but not the boot or drivers side. She drives really well.  The only hiccup has been the fuse was blowing for the indicators, fuel gauge and lights.  This seems to have been rectified by putting a larger fuse in and not using the radio, albeit a new one.
 
She is this wonderful buttercup yellow and is a pleasure to drive. A bit of a head turner!
