Listing Description Back to top 
Volkswagen Thing at a real decent price. It's not a $25k fully restored thing. Pictures always look better than in person. If you are looking for a good little Thing to drive around and get lots of looks-- here it is. It is an original white VW Thing, that has been painted at one time or another well before I have owned it. There are scratches and paint chips here and there throughout. You are welcome to come look at the car prior to bidding. The car is also for sale locally. I have posted over 100 more photos in the link below, along with a video of the engine running.
In the past two years the Thing has had:

-New Clutch

-New Pressure Plate

-New Throwout Bearing

-New Brake Shoes (all around)

-New Brake Lines

Side curtain (windows) have been redone, they are very nice!

Convertible top is in very good shape, no holes.

The decals are a dealer option and they show beautifully.

Floors have been patched by the battery tray.

Gas heater was tested by the owner before me and was told it was a working unit. I have not tried (I am not the biggest fan of them.)

Engine is a strong running 1600cc Dual Port, it's a original matching numbers Engine (#AM010966) It does not smoke or use any oil.

Transmission shifts smoothly. No issues.

All lights work properly (including the glove box light!)

No known accidents.
