Model information

Type 34 Karmann Ghia


“This is my 1969 Type 34 Karmann Ghia. It was registered in September 1969 VW Distributors on the Long Mile Road. It was then sold to Dr M O’Gorman in Monaghan in October 1970 before being transferred to his daughter Pauline in May 1983. I bought the Ghia in June 2019 and I am now only the 4th registered owner since 1969. The Karmann Ghia was last taxed in May 1986. It is currently in France with me and the restoration has started.” Thanks Brian for the information and for submitting your rare Irish registered Type 34 Karmann Ghia to the Census. The doctor Brian refers to above was the owner of two VWs on the Census; JBI 141 a 1970 Karmann Ghia and KBI 666 a 1973 Beetle. We’re looking forward to seeing Brian’s Karmann Ghia when the restoration is finished. Having seen Brian’s previous classic cars, we know the Ghia will be restored to a fantastic level.
