Seller Comments

This exemplary 1974 VW Thing (with perfect powertrain and chrome rims) is the ultimate go-anywhere and look good while you are doing it automobile! This car underwent a comprehensive restoration in 2007 which involved a complete strip down of the car and repaint in its original orange. The restoration also involved the replacement of the front pan halves, the installation of a new interior and all new rubber body components, a new top and top frame (from the leading supplier in the US) and the fitting of chrome rims with new Dunlop 205/65/R15 tires. The paint has a unique satin finish which gives it the benefit of modern rust inhibition while retaining the patina of a vintage automobile. Following the installation of the new pan halves, the car's underside was sealed (top and bottom) with fresh undercoating. The engine was removed from the car and resealed and the engine tin was painted with a stainless steel paint designed to prevent any issues with rust. The brake system was also refurbished during this rehabilitation and it works perfectly. The interior of the car was also restored with new seat covers being installed front and rear, sound suppression material installed front and rear and the installation of a new carpet set. Finally, the car was outfitted with an Alpine AM/FM/CD/USB/MP3 receiver, 2 new 4X6 speakers in front kick panels, 2 new rear 6X9 speakers in speaker boxes and a new bass tube which really makes the car's stereo go THUMP! The car's odometer current reads 26,580 miles and, while it cannot be verified, the mileage is believe to be correct. All in all, over $12,000 was spent on the 2007 restoration and the results are obvious - an exemplary Thing in pristine condition. Currently, the car needs nothing and is ready to cruise around town or hit the beach for some top down summer fun! If you are interested in owning this exemplary vehicle the please call Mark .
