Description
In what might be one of the most love-it-or-hate-it cars ever made, it's hard not to admire the fervent excitement VW lovers seek out a car like this 1973 Volkswagen Thing. Having only been imported into the U.S. for two short years, they are a rare sight to behold, especially one with 32,730 believed actual miles on the odometer. And it's hard to miss this one in its bright yellow respray, white convertible top, and black trim. Inside, this Thing displays a minimalist interior that would make .....
Tesla blush. The black vinyl seats at both front and rear complement the single-gauge dashboard and four-spoke steering wheel.

The rear-mounted 1600 CC four-cylinder engine is stamped AE 691778, which indicates a 50-hp motor from 1970 or '71. A one-barrel carburetor feeds the engine, while a stock manifold does away with exhaust gases. A four-speed manual transmission keeps the driver engaged with a torsion bar front, and an independent rear suspension keeps this Thing riding high. A set of two-piece wheel covers sporting the Wolfsburg crest (as opposed to the traditional VW) sit shod in 195/75R-14 rubber at all four corners. Classic drums at both front and rear handle braking to give the Thing an authentic driving experience.

Highlights:

*32,730 Believed Original Miles

*Eye Catching Yellow

*White Convertible Top

*1600 CC Four Cylinder

*4 Speed Manual

*Black Vinyl

*Independent Rear Suspension

*Two Piece Wolfsburg Wheels

*Only Imported To US For Two Years

This 1973 Volkswagen Thing is such a unique piece of automotive history that owning one almost guarantees you will have random people stopping to ask you about it anywhere it goes. Classic VWs are idolized by those who genuinely appreciate them. There aren't many of these Things in good condition, and certainly not with such low (believed) mileage. Don't miss your chance to get on one before it sells. Call today!
