For all those who are not profound connoisseurs of the classic Volkswagen models, the naming convention of the different models can be confusing. In the specific case, here we are facing a Type 34.
This model was joined to the “classic” Karmann Ghia that we all know to provide customers with a more powerful and spacious model and, why not, with a sportier look. The design was the work of Sergio Sartorelli who also designed a spider version of which only 17 prototypes were produced. Paradoxically, this model was never officially distributed in the largest market in the world for VW: the USA.
The car of this article was sold new in Germany and then imported into the USA (it still has the original German plates), the seller says that its bodywork is in fair condition (relative to its age) as well as the interior: clearly see live a car is another thing compared to seeing it only in photos, however it also seems to us that this is an excellent candidate for a restoration with few headaches. Find it for sale here in Owosso, MI, with bidding at $10,100 and reserve met.

No doubt Roma is in Italy, Roma A20948 license should have been released in early 1967, probably January, while the 1000 Miglia poster refers to 1988 event.

Hello Giuseppe, which car are you referring to?
Hi, I just had a look at the ad on ebay, there are two Roma license plates amongst the pictures…
Understood, thank you for the tip!
