1973 Thing, One of a Kind custom build.   Price: $18950
A total ‘one of a kind’ with a great story! It once was a custom street Thing that was cruzing the streets and shows of Pennsylvania. After a weekend cruz, it was parked in a garage that unfortunately had a faulty garage door opener and caught fire. The house, garage and thing were burnt to a crisp. Unable to bring ourselves to scrap the burnt Thing, it was stored – the Thing sat in a couple backyards for 10 plus years, then one night of “bench racing” and beers; a friend came up with a concept of what to do! With a game plan, the Thing was brought to AZ where it received a pan-off restoration. All suspension components, brakes, wiring where gone through.

Here is a slideshow of it

The pan received a custom metal flake paint job, narrowed and adjustable front beam from Bugzilla, fresh; mild built 1835cc engine, chrome Raider wheels with Diamond back Redline tires, a ‘one-off’ custom top and interior was stitched up with marine grade material (over $1k in material alone) and custom pin stripping/lettering by Gary Krisp. This ‘Thing’ is a dependable, head turning cruiser. ALSO logos can be removed, and or your logos added (please contact us for details)
