1973 VW Thing - price reduced!   Price: $18000
**Price Reduced**
Fully restored Thing. More NOS parts than I should have bought. Hood, all doors, front quarter panel, rear engine cover, windshield frame, and all fenders. New top frame and side curtains from The Thing Shop as well as NOS wiring harness, wiper motor, and turn signal/wiper switch. Front seats are late Karmann Ghia. Upholstery is 1973 orange Westfalia plaid. All suspension restored with extended rear trailing arms to center the wheels in the fender wells. Pan is coated with spray-on Raptor bedliner - inner fenders are also coated and color matched to the body. Engine is original with new Mahle pistons and cylinders, new 34 carb, and new 1973 only stock exhaust. Wheels are BRM replicas with 205 75R15 General Grabbers. Also has 5 point roll bar, original front beam skid plate, original-style floor mats, and an original Empi EZR shifter. Only body modification is deletion of external fuel filler - replaced with earlier gas tank. 750 miles since completion. This project has taken several years to complete. You will not be disappointed. Ready to move on to the next project.
