CAREFREE CRUSIER, AIR COOLED 1600 CC MOTOR, 4-SPEED MANUAL, SOFT TOP, THING!!

This 1974 Volkswagen Thing is quite an affordable rare treat. So if you like cool and classic VW culture, this is just The Thing.

Volkswagen's Type 181 really took the Beetle's rugged persona to the max. The panels are ribbed for strength; there's a higher off-road ground clearance; and the removable doors are interchangeable front and rear for the ultimate in utility. The windshield even folds down like a Jeep. In fact, while its full history goes back to VW's initial German roots, the look of the Thing is as fun and functional as a Willys Jeepster. This example has some fun style with the white paint and tastefully contrasting black rocker stripe. And the black convertible top and side curtains coordinate for an almost two-tone style. The presentation is quite complete but not perfect... because we never expect these to be. The Thing was built for fun, and so we expect them to look like adventurous driver quality cars. And they are also part of the VW culture where the affordable price and parts availability allow you to add your own personal flair. That's why this one is already wearing an upgraded set of 15-inch alloys.

Just like the exterior, the interior is about rugged ... Please ask for the full description.

CAREFREE CRUSIER, AIR COOLED 1600 CC MOTOR, 4-SPEED MANUAL, SOFT TOP, THING!!

This 1974 Volkswagen Thing is quite an affordable rare treat. So if you like cool and classic VW culture, this is just The Thing.

And they are also part of the VW culture where the affordable price and parts availability allow you to add your own personal flair. That's why this one is already wearing an upgraded set of 15-inch alloys.

Just like the exterior, the interior is about rugged utility, and so it's easy to have a carefree day while open to the world. As many components as possible were shared with the Beetle, which means the essentials are hardy and plentiful. This one also has some nice upgrades like a sports steering wheel, cup holders, and newer rubber floor mats. So it makes for a cool and easy cruiser.

The real heart of the go anywhere at any time feeling comes from the familiar 1600cc air-cooled VW motor. It's no surprise that the Thing shares many components with the Beetle so it has a similar reputation for a rugged drivetrain and easy maintenance. You'll even spot some nice upgrades to keep this a strong runner, like the full MSD ignition system. This motor is linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which gives you firm control of the powerhouse. It feels airy and nimble on the road. You even have upgraded front disc brakes and modern cruising tires afforded by the wheel upgrade. But this is truly built to be capable when the pavement ends, too. The Thing's higher ground clearance works nicely in conjunction with the ideal traction from the rear-mounted engine, so there is true function within the unique form.

Volkswagen only sold these to the USA for only a few years. So this is a rare opportunity at a strong-running and highly authentic example of a very cool VW. Call today!!!
