1973 Volkswagen Thing1973 VW THING from Huntington Beach, California in Wilmette Il for sale. This car was flat bedded to Illinois and was restored and is my daily driving car when it is not raining. She is garage kept and doesn't like wet or cold weather because she is a CA girl.
She does however have a rare gas powered heater that is currently not hocked up.
She is being sold because I own 2 other vw's (the 74 vw bus gets the other garage spot). I love this car and will sell her if I get my price, which is firm! If you are not a serious buyer please don't call.
Repairs since I have owned her.
New top & frame
Master cylinder replaced
New fuel lines
Valve adjustment & tune up
New wipers /repair to wiper motor
Electrical work done
New air filter assembly
Back seat reupholstered
Painted inside doors
Carpet and new door trim
wooden glove box cover.
Had windows made/she didn't have any living in California
If I keep her I will fix the speedometer. It is working but the needle is caught behind the peg and needs to be freed. The previous owner fixed the floor pan but a proper repair is next on the list if I keep her.
Last recorded mileage is 12,658
Since may 2016 I have repaired the ball joints/ tie rods in the front end.She needs a front end alignment since the new front end repair.
