1974 Volkswagen Thing

This Thing is almost completely original. I am the 3rd owner and when I bought it, the only part that was not original is the outside of the car, which has been repainted in a Creamy Yellow color, not the same color as the factory yellow paint. There is no major damage to the body and the paint looks decent, but is not perfect. There are a few small chips and/or scrapes.

The inside of the car is still the original white color. Since I have owned it I have switched the generator for an alternator, put a paper air filter on, and replaced the coil. I still have all the original parts. While the car does have surface rust in places, I cannot find any rot or holes. There may be a small spot in the battery tray, but otherwise, the pans are completely solid.

Engine runs great, it does hesitate a bit in between gears when cold (some people refer to it as the Volkswagen cough). Should be easily fixable with some carburetor fine tuning (not my specialty). It also has a shimmy around 50 mph. It could probably use new tires and an alignment. The speedometer quit less than 100 miles ago, and shows 3,222 miles. I believe it has only rolled over once. According to the 2nd owner, the original owner pulled it behind an RV for more than 30,000 miles.

I have many extra parts, including High Back Seats from a 1972 bug, that will slide right into the same track. I have used frames that need to be cleaned up, but brand new foam and seat covers to go on them. Just haven’t found the time to put them together. Additionally, I have retractable shoulder belts to go with them.

Fun to drive, get lots of comments and waves. Selling because I no longer have the time to put into it. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.$11,950 Almost completely original (unmolested) 99% rust free Volkswagen Thing. No Low Ballers!
