1973 Volkswagen Thing for sale
1973 VW Thing!!!!!!!!!!
Be the only one in your city to own a rare classic like this. Everyone looks at this car everywhere I take it. hardly anyone even knows what it is. The VW THING was only imported to the United States for 2 years …1973 and 1974 and that's it!
I have had this car for a little over a year and the clear Texas Title is in my name. All the gears work on the transmission and the Odometer is showing 63K miles. The steering is tight and the car rides smoothly on 4 new tires. The engine is a 1600 dual port that was rebuilt by previous and since then has had lots of new parts installed.
This car starts very easily. runs. drives and stops. with great responce and pep for a VW. The entire Brake system was replaced. Interior is entirely new with new seat covers on all seats and new padding in front seats. Wheels are the hard to find. correct 14 inch wide five smoothies with the correct offset that have been sanded and painted factory silver and have brand new tires on them and brand new hubcaps. The typical floor rust was in two spots in the battery tray and under the rear seat that have been cut out and been replaced with 20 gauge steel welded in.
This car will be a great daily driver. The horn. wipers. turn signals. hazards. brake lights. bright and dim headlights lights all work like they should. Oil pressure. brake warning and alternator light all work and shut off when the car is started.
Here is a list of the new parts.
