1973 Volkswagen Thing 4 Door Convertible

We double Dog Dare you to be different. If you're tired of the same old cars at cruise night or the Show and Shine at the Park try out something that is truly unique. This 1973 model is made even more unique by its remarkable condition. The sheetmetal is straight and solid. The Cream paint is also in great condition, as is the black top. The 1.6L engine is strong and smooth. This one won't win many drag races but is a proven and reliable setup found throughout the world. The clutch and 4-speed transaxle operate smoothly and make for an easy drive. The brakes, steering, and suspension are all in great condition as well. The interior is pretty Germanic basic, but in very good condition. The seats have been recovered and the interior repainted along with the exterior. The rear flip-down seats work smoothly and allow extra storage space. This Thing is just a fun ride waiting to happen and you will come home with more friends than you left with for sure. Whether you simply want to cruise around town or would rather flip open the top and head down to the beach, you will not go unnoticed in this one.
