1979 Volkswagen Thing

This beautiful Volkswagen Type 181 (AKA “Thing”) has been fully restored with amazing attention to detail. The classic baby blue paint adds to this car’s charm and turns heads. It’s clean, complete, tuned-up in early 2022 and ready for worry free driving. Take it outdoors on a trail, to the beach or simply to cruise around the neighborhood. This “Thing” is fun and dependable and waiting for its next adventure.

Equipment includes a new black convertible top with side curtains, fog lights, the classic VW color-matched hubcap inserts, matched mats, a fold-down windshield, removable doors, and an aftermarket stereo system. Front disk brakes were added for increased security.

Driving a VW Thing is a unique experience to be passed down to generations to come. Many cars will come and go and their names will be forgotten. Owning a VW Thing is an opportunity to preserve the past and share the history in great car building. The solid engineering reputation is there; make this one yours before there are no more Things to share.
