Volkswagen Typ 34 Karman Ghia 1500 S — 1965

Here’s a super nice and non-renovated rare “razor edge type-3 Ghia”. It’s been an exhibition car since 1977 and it’s in the best untouched collector's condition with only 60,000km on the clock.

"Haven’t seen this model in such a good condition before, all the detailing is fine and the body is in a top condition. Some surfaces may be repainted, but it is difficult to determine."


The car was only driven during the summer months for 12 years up until 1977 and then became an enthusiast car. In 1984 the car was bought by the owner of Arvika Car Museum and has been displayed in their collections ever since. Our mechanic has start up the car and driven it, the engine and gearbox runs well but the brakes are bad (handbrake is ok) and the tires are dry and cracked (original tires).
The body work and interior is in a great condition, the seats have fitted seat covers and underneath the original seat fabric is perfect.

Facts about the model

I mars 1962 började Karmann bygga en lite större USA-inspirerad Ghia coupé som inte liknade den ursprungliga. Såldes dock aldrig som ny i USA.

Den byggde på typ 3 chassit och var betydligt vassare i linjerna (därav smeknamnet "razoredge"). 1962 och 1963 hette den VW Ghia 1500, och mellan 1963 och 1965 – 1500S. Från 1965 till 1969 var beteckningen 1600L. Denna blev betydligt dyrare än och mer exklusiv än första Karman Ghia modellen men byggdes trots allt i 42 000 exemplar.

Typ 34 byggdes mellan 1962-1969 och bara som coupé, men några specialbyggen och prototyper togs fram i cabrioletversion.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
  • ATTENTION: Many of these cars are sold without valid Swedish registration documents, as spare parts.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
