1974 Volkswagen Thing Rust Free California VW Thing selling with NO RESERVE Additional Info:


What a great car! I bought this Thing off a buddy of mine who got it from the original owner afew yearsago. We had big plans to tow it behind the RV and travel across the country this summer. Life has other plans for us now so, we have sold the RV and here goes the Thing.

This Thing has no rust. It is a solid California raised car with no issues. The engine and transmission were rebuilt about 3000 miles ago. The top and sidewindoware new Thing Shop style upgraded versions. A few other upgrades have been made from original. The fenders were replaced with the largerones to accept bigger tires and they really do well in the mud and sand. The exhaust system was upgraded for better performance. Plus, I think it looks better without the rear bumper on. Agood sound system was added with a better and hidden antennaand the front seats were replaced with bigger and softer leather kind ones. Both of these make driving the Thing much more enjoyable.

I have the original style fenders, seats, rear bumper, and a box of other misc parts, papers, and related books that will go with the car.

This is not a Barrett-Jackson concourse show car. There are minor bumps and bruises and touched up scratchesbut nothing major. It is a very reliable, solid, well maintained, quality vehicle that you will be very proud to own. The odometer shows 75905 andI believe it to be correct. The title shows miles exempt. I have a clear and clean CA title that is in my name and I am sellingit as-is. Being a 1974, this Thing is SMOG exempt in CA. Please contact me through eBay if you have questions or would like to make arrangements to check the Thing out.

If you are looking for a fun car that is reliable, cheap to operate, and gets a ton of attention, come check out this Thing. You will be happy you did.
