Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34 Reserved Parking Fridge Magnet
Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34 1962 – 1969 Aluminum Parking Fridge Magnet
In 1961, Volkswagen introduced the VW 1500 Karmann Ghia, or Type 34, featuring Volkswagen's new flat 1500cc engine design, and styling by Italian engineer Sergio Sartorelli. Due to model confusion with the Type 14, the Type 34 was known variously as the "Der Große Karmann" ("the big Karmann") in Germany, "Razor Edge Ghia" in the United Kingdom, or "European Ghia" (or "Type 3 Ghia" among enthusiasts) in the United States. Today the name Type 34 is recognized as the worldwide naming convention. The styling offered more interior and cargo room than the original Karmann Ghia. It featured an electric clock, three luggage spaces, built-in fog lights, round tail lights, upper and lower dash pads, door pads, and long padded armrests. It was the fastest production VW model of its day. It was also the most expensive and luxurious passenger car VW manufactured in the 1960s – back then a Type 34 cost as much as two basic Beetles in many markets. The comparatively high price meant it never generated high demand, and only 42,505 (plus 17 convertibles) were built over the car's entire production life between 1962 and 1969. Although the Type 34 was available in most countries, it was not offered officially in the U.S. – VW's largest and most important export market – another reason for its low sales numbers. Many still made their way to the USA (most via Canada).
Perfect for all car enthusiasts that want to show their passion for their Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34. Make room on the fridge and make it clear: Your Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34 deserves a reserved parking spot in the middle of the other magnets.
