1973 VW Thing   Price: 11500
I am parting ways with my '73 Thing to take on other projects. It has been garage kept by me for almost three years and the previous Owner was also a garage kept person. I will list all work done to it below. It runs great, pretty sure it's original paint as I was told that from previous Owner and upon any investigations it seems legit. Gas heater is still intact, just not hooked up for safety reasons. Rims are obviously not stock but give it some flare. Engine area is pretty clean and not a whole lot of rust on this vehicle, which is shocking for it's age. Signs of body work from over the years but only noticeable upon very close inspection. There is also a new tinted windshield. It runs great and has been my weekend ride for cruising around and such. Firm on price but will entertain offers if they are reasonable. Top is under five years old and fits great over the original frame.

Recent Work Done:
New tie rods installed, CV boots replaced, rear brakes adjusted, fuel line to canister replaced, oil changes regularly as needed, wiring for dash cluster repaired/replaced to illuminate all gauges, new distributor/cap, valves adjusted, door latch assembly rebuilt on passenger rear side, headlight switch fixed, there was a leak with the fuel solenoid shutoff causing high idle that was fixed, brake supply hoses replaced and flushed rear system, replace evaporated lines, new front brake pads, fuel line replaced, fuel filter replaced, spark plugs replaced, fairly new carb installed a few years ago, it had stock exhaust put on in 2012, new generator pulley and a couple of other things done I can provide all work orders for work done dated back as far as 2011 which is all provided by previous owner.

It also has (2) 6" marine speakers installed with AMP under hood and an AUX input in glove box for iPods. All fairly new seats that are super comfortable as well.

Serious offers only and no test drives for fun or tire kickers please.
