I came across an original English manual for my 1971 Thing. If anyone wants a copy I can scan and post it.

Here are a couple of pics

cnd-eh...
Thanks very much for making that manual available.
Interesting to read.
I like the more spartan steering wheel, dashboard knobs; including the wiper switch, and the control for heat/defrost under the dash.
Check out the light colored sun visors and smaller grab handle on P22.
Thanks again, Mondshine

Thanks again, have you talked to the webmaster about putting a copy on the Samba site under tech docs? I am finishing the translation of another document, and I plan to do that.

I just saw this thread and this post today.

I grabbed this PDF for the Thing Owner's Manuals page on the site.

1972 VW Thing Owner's Manual

I also split it apart into the pages so people can link to each page or see each page, if needed.

I also re-created the PDF as the original PDF above had page 37 in there twice.

If anyone else has any other Thing Owner's Manuals they can provide for the site, please contact me directly.
