1974 Volkswagen Thing – Type 181
1600 DP Engine (less than 1000 miles on build)
4 speed Manual
New Paint, Engine, pretty much everything on this Thing has been upgraded and replaced. Pan up restoration before I got it.
Newer 6 way adjustable seats
This THING is ready to drive and have FUN!
If you have never seen a VW Thing, they are great, they have 4 doors that come off like a Jeep, the Windshield folds down, soft top, they are actually quite rare (Only imported in the US for 2 years). They can haul 4-5 people, or you can fold the back seat down to make a large cargo area.
They are perfect to be a TOAD (RV / Motorhome Tow vehicle) to pull behind your RV. They are as useful as a side by side (RZR, razor, Mule, gator, ect…). Use them at the Lake, Farm, Hunting Fishing, or Cruise them to Classic Car shows. They get a ton of attention and lots of smiles and waves.
The restoration on this Thing has less than 1000 miles on it. These are hard to find in good shape. We just have too many toys (right now 2 Things, 2 Bugs, and 2 buses).
Asking $12,500 OBO – willing to look at partial trades + cash.
