1974 Volkswagen Thing
About This Volkswagen

|Drivetrain||Rear Wheel Drive|
Vehicle OverviewRecently invested more money on significant upgrades for my Thing which are listed near the bottom of this AD description. It's now almost fully restored and like having a brand new and improved Thing! I reinstalled an original Factory Hard Top and the Sliding Glass Side Curtain Windows from The Thing Shop. I've installed many VW Factory/VW approved Dealer Options on my Thing. Also, it's been professionally rust proofed! I'll consider all offers including trades.
If you want a plain stock looking under powered VW Thing then this one is not for you. However, if you want an exhilarating, fun to drive, high performance, safe to drive, slightly, but, tastefully modified VW Thing then this is the one for you! What I have for sale is a new and improved low mileage VW Thing with about 62,000 original miles, and is not a rust bucket nor a Bondo Buggy. It's one of the nicest Things you'll find anywhere and definitely one of the best you'll find east of the Mississippi River. The engine has a high performance camshaft and crankshaft which makes it have about twice as much power as a stock VW Thing's Type 1 Engine! Also, the Engine Block is the best Type 1 Engine Block and is a late 1970's Super Beetle Fuel Injected Engine Block. My Thing starts, runs and drives very well.
Actually, my Thing is extremely rare because the original color is Avacado Green and a very small number of Thing's with this color were imported into the USA for one year - 1974. Who ever buys my Thing might want to consider repainting it back to its original Avacado Green color. However, the current color is actually a very unique custom, but, pleasing to look at Maroon/Grape color. I've only seen one other Thing with a Maroon color so my car definitely stands out!
It's been well maintained by a certified VW Mechanic who knows VW air cooled engines. I've had a lot of work done to my Thing since I purchased it and have bought many parts for it;...
