1975 Thing   Price: $4700 obo
1975 Thing Mexican version
I bought this car as my first Thing. I found out the lift kit and the tall tires made it hard for the wife to get in and out. So I bought a 74 orange thing (see other ad). The car was originally a Mexico only Blue but it was repainted Viper yellow. The cousin of the guy owned the car said it was a hotel car in Cabo.
It is a nice car and with a little work, a fun driver. Has 4 bolt wheels which was standard for Mexico version.

The good
It has all the doors and the body is good. It has two early yellow and white seats. Has real potential for being a fun off road car. Has 6 point cage. Trans is installed.
Steering wheel shown was broken and replaced with stock wheel. I will include used top frame that came with car.

The bad
Prior owner had a started to rewire the car. Its neatly done and nearly finished. It has a long block that turns over nicely. has fan shroud, intake, sheet metal and other misc. parts. The top frame ears are cut off but are avail from Thing Shop.
Brakes need to completed and long brake line is included. Floor has sheet metal covers over some holes. E brake handle assembly needs to be replaced.
