1973 Volkswagen Thing

HERE IS A VERY SPECIAL 1973 VOLKSWAGEN THING WHICH IS NOT ONLY AN ICONIC AUTOMOBILE, UT A VERY COLLECTIBLE WORK OF ART AS WELL. THIS 1973 TYPE 181 THING HAS TRAVELLED 86,671 MILES SINCE NEW AND WAS ORIGINALLY FINISHED WITH A YELLOW EXTERIOR AND BLACK INTERIOR. IT HAS AN ICONIC 4 CYLINDER AIR COOLED ENGINE ALONG WITH A 4-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION. IT HAS JUST BEEN SERVICED AND IT RUNS AND DRIVES VERY WELL.
IN EARLY 2013, HIS 1973 VOLKSWAGEN TYPE 181 THING WAS COMMISSIONED TO BE PAINTED BY THE LEGENDARY STREET ARTIST KNOWN AS ALEC MONOPOLY. THE VEHICLE WAS SHIPPED TO HIS WORK STUDIO IN CALIFORNIA WHERE HE CREATED "THE MONEY THING". THERE ARE SEVERAL IMAGES ONLINE OF ALEC MONOPOLY CREATING THIS MOVING WORK OF ART AS WELL AS PICTURES OF HIM DRIVING IT IN CALIFORNIA. FOR THIS PARTICULAR PIECE, E USED HIS "MONOPOLY MAN" THEME THROUGHOUT THE EXTERIOR OF THE CAR. ALEC MONOPOLY DREW INSPIRATION FOR "MONOPOLY MAN" AFTER THE 2008 FINANCIAL MARKET CRISIS AND BERNIE MADOFF IN PARTICULAR.
"THE MONEY THING" WAS PAINTED IN ALEC MONOPOLY'S SIGNATURE STYLE OF STREET ART AND IT IS VERY DETAILED THROUGHOUT. IT IS ACTUALLY SEVERAL DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE CREATIONS COMBINED INTO ONE VERY SPECIAL AND COLLECTIBLE AUTOMOBILE. THIS WORK OR ART WOULD BEST BE SERVED IN A COLLECTION OR MUSEUM WHERE IT WOULD BE VIEWED AND APPRECIATED BY MANY!!!
THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE MOST COLLECTIBLE AND VALUABLE TYPE 181 THING ON THE PLANET. NOT ONLY DID ALEC MONOPOLY PAINT ALMOST THE ENTIRE EXTERIOR OF THE "MONEY THING", UT HE SIGNED THE INTERIOR IN SEVERAL PLACES AS WELL. I HAVE A COMPLETE PHOTO LOG OF ALEC MONOPOLY PAINTING THIS CAR AS WELL AS THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING DOCUMENTS BOTH TO AND FROM HIS STUDIO IN CALIFORNIA. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL ME (MATT 516-658-4048) WITH ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
THIS IS ONE OF ONLY A FEW ART CARS THAT ALEC MONOPOLY HAS DONE AND IT IS SURE TO APPRECIATE WITH HIS WORKS SELLING FOR MORE AND MORE WITH EACH PASSING DAY. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!! GOOD LUCK!!!
