1974 VW thing   Price: $4000
ive got a 1974 VW thing ive been meanign to get to for several years, but i have two buses and dont really have the time for it.

I can get you more pictures if interested, but (ok, the orange door is a halloween joke, i have the matching drivers door) its original paint for the most part (the passenger side was hit 20+ years ago), so the rocker has some primer/paint and a bad pull out job (i ve attached th eoriginal condition and the ppull out job before the paint).

Right now its a "roller" The engine is out (original with oil bath air cleaner, original carb and DVDA distributor and did turn by hand but the the valves might be tight from sitting, will need a new exhaust..i reccomend the vintage speed one,)

Car is originally from texas, only real rot on it is a few surface rust spots in a few random places, some holes in package tray from leaky top, and the passenger side floor pan.
Fenders: front driver is nice, rear driver is nice, but wrong color, passenger front is original paint, but needs work, passenger rear is the same.

Never been on new england roads.

its missing the top, but i have about 2/3 of a thing shop bikini top frame, and i have ALOT of spare parts for it, pretty much everything needed for a body off restoration, which id sell as part of the deal if you want those as a deal, cheaper than any retailer.

included in this price is a set of thick (correct 18 gauge) floorpans, and a klokkerholm rocker panel to repair the passenger side, as well as a set of beetle highback seats, and the thing shop bikini frame, plus a partial parcel tray and a few small sheet metal bits to help you repair it.

4,000 firm

but ive got pretty much all of the seals, top bead, channel seals, brake parts, axles, NOS front and rear bumpers, NOS front fenders, repainted Original german front fenders, etc.. available separately or as part of a package deal

Prefer local pickup but ill work with your car hauler to get it to you. Ill reinstall the engine and fit as much spare parts as you want/need to pay for
