Background Story of this 1973 Volkswagen Thing

Overview of 1973 Volkswagen Thing For Sale by Owner

The Volkswagen Beetle was not just the “people's car” but was a symbol of peace, love, and good times, The Beetle’s platform was used to launch many exciting cars but very few matched up to the Volkswagen 181 Thing. The Volkswagen 181 or better known as the “thing” over in the US was Volkswagen’s attempt to recreate the legendary dune bug of the 60s. With an open-top design driving, one meant total freedom and standing out from the crowd in the quirkiest way possible. Looking to spice up your weekend drive and experience open-top driving like never before? This 1973 Volkswagen 181 Thing is what you are looking for. With a reported 73,000 miles on the clock, this classic Volkswagen is reportedly up for sale by its third owner.

Exterior and Interior

The Volkswagen Thing was a mishmash of multiple cars from the Volkswagen lineup. While the design was unique, the floor pans were borrowed from the legendary Karman Ghia; the design allowed for all four doors to be removable, the windshield to fold flat and the convertible roof to be removed so that you and your passengers could experience a unique driving experience. This 1973 Volkswagen Thing is finished off with a yellow exterior and sports a black “the thing” sticker running on the side of the car. The body and paint are in great condition with the Seller reporting the car have been repainted at some point. The convertible roof is finished off in black and in terms of shoes, this classic Volkswagen sports its factory wheels and hubcaps. The barebone interior on this 1973 Volkswagen Thing sports a black and yellow theme and shares features like the Wolfsburg steering wheel and meter cluster from the Volkswagen Beetle. The interior is all factory with the exception of an aftermarket JVC sound system providing tunes.

Engine

Scoot over to the back and pop the hood and you will find the legendary Volkswagen air-cooled engine in this 1973 Volkswagen Thing. The 4-cylinder air-cooled powertrain on this car sports a twin carburetor set up for added power. The rear-engined setup sends power to the car's rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.
