1973 VW Thing Excellent Condition Sea Hawks Type 181
This is a beautiful, turn key, ready to drive, 1973 VW Thing that has been restored and is in excellent condition. Comes with the hard top and soft top. Both in new condition. All side curtain windows are glass, not plastic. The front driver and passenger have sliding windows. All doors can be removed and the front windshield folds down for open beach riding. It has a great aux. heater unit under the front hood that provides plenty of heat in the passenger compartment to keep you super warm on cold days.
There are approximately 12,000 miles on a completely overhauled motor. 1600cc with new carb and performance exhaust. All new tires, less than 100 miles on them. New cv joints and brakes with new master cylinder. Wheel bearing just packed, new oil cooler just installed, etc. Maintenance records included. This is a very nice, super reliable, well maintained VW Thing.
It has a single owner from 1973 until 2012 and one owner since then. It has the Sea Hawks football team theme colors, green & black, with a Sea Hawks black tape along the bottom sides that can easily be removed if desired. The interior is in excellent condition, no rust, the floor boards are solid. The transmission and clutch are smooth and shift like new. The radio, windshield wipers and fire extinguisher operate fine. I just installed new roll bar padding last week, see photos.
The engine does not smoke, It starts, stops and runs beautifully. This is a super nice 1973 Type 181 Volkswagen Thing that everyone loves and waves at when you are cruising down the road.
Serious buyers, please look at all of the photos and call with any questions [REDACTED] PST.
Clear title and current Washington Collectors plate and registration.
