It is our pleasure to present this classic Volkswagen for consideration. The Thing was only in production for four years (1972-1975) and was only imported into the U.S. in 1973 and 1974. It was presented as ultra-versatile convertible, which this example clearly embodies. The vehicle has been completely gone through and has been restored with no expense spared.

Known as the Type 181, this German manufactured automobile is powered by a period correct 1600cc dual port flat 4-cylinder rear-mounted engine mated to a 4-speed floor shifted manual transmission. This 1973 Volkswagen Thing came to us out of a long stay in a private collection in California. It has a hard top and side curtains. The white paint shows well over a black interior with vinyl seats. The Thing also comes with a factory heater. The Thing runs and drives as it should and gets smiles for miles.

If you're in the market for a unique yet reliable vehicle, look no further than “The Thing.” Its SUV curb appeal with added convertible features truly sets the car apart. It starts on command and remains a pleasure to drive/shift on the open road. These vehicles will continue to appreciate as examples this clean are harder and harder to come by. A great opportunity at the price point offered here. Call or e-mail today.
