1973 Volkswagen Thing Additional Info:

I have owned my type 181 Thing since 2012. I bought it for $5500. It needed the engine rebuilt and the brakes redone. I had my old timer mechanic do that work--he had rebuilt 3 of my engines beforehand. He was a great mechanic, but passed away in 2017. Anyway, car has needed a starter last summer--replaced it with a lifetime warranty unit at napa. I have had the oil and tune up parts replaced and had valves adjusted yearly. That is all the car has needed while owning it. It is a reliable, fun car that turns heads and it fun in the sun! Still have it's gas heater, that I have never used. I never even tried to reset the fuse. clear title in my name. please, if bidding, please make sure you want the car and are willing to pay promptly. I sold the car at the beginning of the year to a guy who never paid. non- refundable deposit of $1000 to be paid by 24 hours of auction end. full payment due within 3 days, bank wire or cash accepted. If you want to pay for the car in full with paypal, that is fine, but it'll cost 5% more of final price. delivery is not included. no foreign bidders unless you clear it with me. no bidders with feedback under 10 or new members unless you clear it with me as your bid will be cancelled. car is for sale locally and I can pull auction anytime. questions BEFORE bidding PLEASE and BEFORE AUCTION ENDS. About Seller: I have been on ebay since 1999. I have sold to a lot of happy customers, mostly car parts and collectible stuff. I have owned aircooled vw's since 1997. I write for the vintage vw club magazine every month and own a large collection of vw's. This is my only running and driving VW thing and I am thinning the herd to put money toward another Porsche (I am porsche club member, too). ps comes with four hubcaps.
