Thank you to everyone who commented on the vehicle photo on the HVA website and the HVA’s Facebook page.
The vehicle in the photo is a 1964 Volkswagen Type 34 Ghia.
Additional information about the vehicle: The models between 1962-1964 were the only years you could have a color combination of ruby red exterior, black top and silver/silver beige interior. The type 34 was not imported for the US market. VW had concerns that the Karmann production facility would not be able to keep pace with American demand.
And the winner of the contest – Ash Good from Wilmington, N.C.!
For guessing correctly Ash Good will receive a free HVA ballcap. This is the same cap available here, in the online store.
Here is Ash Good and his family next to their 1974 Volkswagen Type 1 Ghia. The photo was taken at the 2011 Wheels of Landfall Car Show. For more information on the car show and to see an interview with Ash Good and his vehicle click here to view the video.
Hope everyone enjoyed our first contest.
