For Sale: 1974 Volkswagen Thing in Port St Lucie, Florida

Vehicle Description

True ACAPULCO Thing!  Ultra Rare!  This is one of only 400 made for USA markets.  It has been verified to be a REAL Acapulco Thing, not just a tribute car.  It runs and drives, with only 33k miles showing on the speedometer.  Transmission and clutch are tight and motor starts right up.  Clear Florida title in hand (VIN:  1842624775).  This one came with a hardtop (shown), which was an available option at the time.  

It needs restoration but once complete, it will be worth big money (one sold last year for over 60k, and there are many examples of Acapulco's selling for serious money).  There is some rust (picture shown) and needs some body work (picture shown).  The bumpers, floor pans and front seats are not original.  I  have a ton of pictures and some video to share.

If you know Things, and specifically the value of an Acapulco Thing, then you understand what you are looking at.
