1973 Volkswagen Thing Project Car
Work priorities and a toddler have made me put my project VW Thing up for sale
1973 with clean title and on non op status
It is not running and will have to be towed
I bought it as a project and have slowly over the last few years worked on it.
I was focused on the mechanicals first and was going to leave it a little rat rod style with patina at first.
Body is rough but a good foundation and spend a lot of money on new parts. My loss your gain.
Very little rust. Some superficial in rockers.

Has dents, cracks, serious patina and sections where someone added bondo. The right rear was hit hard enough it needs to be pulled out at some point. (was leaving bodywork for last)
