Wow! A VW Karmann Ghia Type 34! Matchbox must like Volkswagen's Karmann Ghia and its history.
The VW Karmann Ghia Type 14 is the car that is easily recognizable and it was built from 1955 to 1974.
Its chassis is shared from the VW Beetle.
The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Type 34 was built from 1961 to 1974 and was never offered to the US.
Many came to the US from Canada. It was built on a T3 chassis (the same used on the 1500/1600 Notchbacks, Variants (Squareback), and Fastbacks).
In 1974 the Karmann Ghia Type 14 and the Type 34 production was stopped and the VW Karmann Ghia Type 34's replacement was the Porsche 914.

I look forward to adding this car to my expanding VW collection. Thanks Pete!
