1974 VW Thing   Price: 9995
We are selling our VW Thing. I got this back on the road back in 2014 after it had been sitting outside for over 14 years, it was in very rough shape and needed almost everything. The body and pan were separated and I took the body to sandblast then sprayed it in a sealer primer, then shot it with a industrial single stage yellow paint. Then I cut out the major cancer and did some patch work. The pan was not salvageable so I bought a clean titled 73 pan and used that. So that being said it is titled and registered as a 1974 but has a 1973 pan under it which I have the title for.

Here is the list of everything we replaced and or is new and all have less than 3000 miles on them or less

* rebuilt 1641cc motor (have receipts for the Parts)
* new transmission Built by German Trans Axle (have receipt)
* new stereo with 2- 6" and 2-6x9 speakers
* complete new wiring from headlights to taillights
* new headlights
* new taillights
* switched from generator to alternator
* new 27" General Grabber AT2 tires
* new brake hardware and shoes and soft lines
* new Battery that has been kept on tender every winter
* new starter
* new fuel tank new sending unit and new fuel gauge
* New coilover shocks front and rear
* New carburetor
* New tie rod ends inner and outer ( last week)

The car is serviced every spring at a local Young's Ole Volks here in Bend every spring. It does not have a full top but I did have a custom bikini top made for it that fits o the factory roll bar. The body definitely is not perfect...... far from it, but i can guarantee that there is no rust. I am not a body and paint guy so do not claim it to be even close to perfect but it is in very usable and presentable condition.
This is a turn key car. It runs great and has been my wife's summer toy for the past 3 summers. We are selling it only to finish some other projects. We are asking $9995 obo. please call or text Adam with any questions 503-931-9091
