1973 Volkswagen Thing

Thanks for looking.
Im probably only going to list this once, o bid if you're interested.
Ive owned this Thing since 2007. It is a driver and it is inspected, egistered and insured in Texas, drive it weekly at least.
It has rust in both rockers around an earlier bondo repair jobs and a dent here and there. it is missing a rear fender. It also has a repair where someone had mounted Gas cans on the sides. The top is complete and functions but not restored. There are some repairs on the pans but no active rust. all windows are there and functional but need restoration.
The good. The engine was rebuilt by qualitat but i dont know when, he front end was rebuilt with type 181 ball joints in 2009. It has So Cal front disks with new master cylinder just installed last year with wide five pattern. Tires are BFG mud terrain new in 2010, he fronts just just radials bought earlier this year. CV boots look good.
Im selling because I use it to drive around the Texas hill country and its killing this poor thing, need to get a mule or gator.
