Good for a summer fun driver   Price: $6500
Good 1973 Thing for Sale

I bought it in Seattle in 2001. Drove it cross country. Since then it has only been used for short runs in the summer. It has been garaged every winter. Hate to get rid of it, but we have moved, and I really do not have space to store it. Also have two small children and a third on the way, we won't be able to use it for a few years, and would rather see someone get some enjoyment out of it, than keep it in a garage.

Pros
good runner
64000 miles
just had the brakes done by Burlington Imports (classic VW specialist)
New Tires, new battery (the only miles on this work are the distance from the shop back to my house)

Have user manual, wiring guide, heater manual, service manual, has heater and washer resevoir, also have extra set of curtain cores

Cons
curtains a little worse for wear

when I had bought it the owner said the wiring harness had melted and he had done some creative wiring. The next project for me would have been a new wiring harness. Right now the right turn signal is sluggish hand would have to be fixed before it could be considered a daily driver again.

some rust by the passenger rear door, and front windshield. There is an area that had been bondo-d by the gas cap.

There was a crack on the canopy frame. it is patched with some strapping now, but I would weld it if I had access to equipment.

Price is negotiable. I would like to sell before winter comes. Not interested in trades
