Daniel, we might twist your question around and ask "If VW (Wolfsburg) were so proud of the T34, why didn't they sell it in the U.S.?" :)
A very appropriate question actually. I get the impression that the Type 34 was a bit of a marketing fiasco for VW. They didn't really know what to do do with it or how to sell it. It was too expensive, and it was competing against the other Karmann Ghia. Most of its external competitors of a similar price had far better performance.
