'75 Type 181 California Car   Price: $18500

This beautiful 1975 VW Thing is one of the very few '75's that made it into the US, and is ready to enjoy for the summer!

Sporting new paint, new interior, and a rebuilt engine, this Thing is ready to enjoy summer drives to the beach with the top down! The repaint is in excellent condition, and the bullet proof air cooled rear engine that VW is so famous for runs as it should. We all know Things aren't known for their performance, but this car will cruise down the highway without difficulty. The 4 speed manual transmission shifts great without issues or noises. All of the lights, horn, gauges, and windshield wipers are in working order, and the convertible top and frame are also in great condition. The car also comes with a complete set of drop in windows that are in excellent condition. The four doors lift off smoothly, and the windshield folds down without issue.

This Thing was moved to NY six months ago, but lived the rest of its life in sunny Southern California. That being sad, there are no rust issues- no holes, bubbles, etc.

Recent upgrades include a new battery, new carburetor, four new tires, and new chrome hub caps.

The only flaws to point out are:

- A rock chip in the windshield

- The rear window vinyl needs to be replaced

Don't miss your chance on owning this low production VW collectible. If you're looking for an affordable convertible that fits the whole family, easy to maintain, and fun to drive- then this is your car!

Asking $18,500 obo. Clean CA title in hand. Payment accepted in cash or cashier's check. Vehicle being sold as-is
