This VW "Thing" is the perfect "Every Day Driver" "Beach Cruiser" "Surfer Style" vehicle or maybe in its "Urban Roadster" configuration without the doors and windshield down is the set up for you to enjoy...with the wind in your hair all year long. The reliable strong running 4 cylinder 1600cc bulletproof air cooled VW power-plant purrs like a kitten and is mated to 4 speed manual transmission. Clutch is good. The traction advantage of the engine being over the rear driving wheels makes it a very nimble and able vehicle, and it's very fun to drive. It can go places others can't. This "Thing" brakes well and handles great. The exterior is recently professionally painted "Thing Orange" and it has a very nice finish and a nice shine. The interior is black with comfortable high back front bucket seats and black loop carpeting. The JVC stereo system is really nice witha removable faceplate for safe keeping.2 stereo speakers are professionally installed in the foot wells up front. The rear seats fold down for more storage. This is a very unique, fun and versatile vehicle. Why buy a $60,000.00+ Jeep (that you see everywhere) when you can have this cool collectible classic. Jump in and cruise this VW "Thing" down the road and you will see why this is the perfect vehicle for a fun beach day, camping or anything outdoors. Super fun and affordable to own and operate. Volkswagen only sold these in the USA for two years ('73 & '74) so it is very collectable.Losing my storage area so it must go.Minor issues worth noting: Horn andemergency flashersnot presently working (bulbs/ fuse/ loose wire?), reverse lights not working (bulbs /loose wire?) Has the factory VW gas heater intact but untested / un-used (In Florida so never tried it or needed it), and It had some common rust in the battery area but it was repair welded it also had some rust in the windshield frame but was repaired. This is a very nice, solid and reliable "Thing".
THIS "THING" IS PERFECT FOR: * The Ultimate "Surfer Safari" Ride...just grab the keys and hit the beach.* Everyday "Super Cool" Daily Driver* A Family Beach Outing / Off Roading* Weekend Getaways / Camping* Business Promotion (Perfect For Surf Shop? Dive Shop? Urban Outfitter?)* Any Business That Wants Maximum Attention* A Sport Ute You Can Enjoy....Street / Sand / Mud / Off Road* Ultimate Grocery Getter (for the surfer or off roader in you!)* Seeing The Country / Outdoor Excursion or a RV tow behind vehicle? * Car Shows / Tour Vehicle / Novelty Vehicle / Wine Country Tours* Automotive Investment / Auto Museum* A gift for the someone that has everything!* Income Producing (Specialty UBER Type / Valet / Shuttle Business?)* Family Fun...The Toy You Always Wanted!
