1973 Volkswagen ThingThis has been my daily driver since 2001 in the San Francisco bay area (see rust). And it still is my daily driver until I sell it.
It's got some rust spots that will need work. Its got a little bondo up front and in the back.
I have extra fenders, extra heater set, miscellaneous non specific Thing parts and miscellaneous Thing specific parts, extra set of window frames.
Currently its got a vinyl top and glass windows from the Thing shop, almost 10 years old though. New tires. Rims powder-coated about 5 years ago. Windshield has a crack.
I've brought it to a local VW specialist in Colma, CA whenever I had issues. Heater not installed but I two full BN4 heater sets ready to be assembled and installed.
No hardtop or rollbar.
Very stock engine with the exception of the 009 distributor. I have the dual vacuum distributor included as well.
It has the high-back and safer, Beetle seats. The original low back seats are long gone. It needs a new hood pull cable, new engine to body seal.
It leaks a bit of oil probably from the dog house oil cooler seals.
Muffler is shot but one will be included. I've got the rear bumper but its beat up. Front is fairly beat up as well.
It has a lot of little things that add up to a lot! It's ready to be stripped and off body restored!
