One of a kind
Photo of the week #43 – The Type 34 ‘Razor Edge’ is a rare Volkswagen. From the 45,505 made (the Razor was curiously never sold in America), only 1252 are known to survive, and are known to suffer badly from rust. So a Type 34 in superb condition is a rare machine indeed.
This Ghia, photographed in Lavenham this year, has only had three owners and has covered just 10,948 miles from new! The first owner, Mrs Dixon of Leamington Spa kept the car from new until 1990 when it had covered just 8,589 miles. The second, a Mr Vijay Solanki, owned the car until 2011, covering just 43 miles in his 21 years of ownership. Finally it fell into the hands of well-known Volkswagen collector, Wayne McCarthy who has brought the car up to show-winning standard.
That is a cool, rare T34. Nice!
I never saw this one before. I wish you had shown front and side views as well. The line across the engine lid and the distinctive tail lights are great.
Hi Joe, There is a picture of the front of the same car in my pictures from the Lavenham VW Show:
Thanks for pointing to it for me. I thought that was the car but never having seen it from all sides, I couldn’t put it together.

Thanks Jelani. 🙂
No problem. 😀
That thing just oozes sexiness! (Sorry to be so blunt, but there is really no other way to put it!) Oh, and as usual, a great shot!
There have been quite a few of these rare cars popping up at UK shows this year which has made a nice change.
The red one above is for sale at the moment with an asking price of £30K.
Great Shot & What Fond Memories Of Lavenham !
