For Sale: 1974 Volkswagen Thing in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars is pleased to offer this loveable 1974 Volkswagen Thing (Type 181) for sale at our Scottsdale showroom, located in North Phoenix. This two-wheel-drive, four-door convertible was manufactured by Volkswagen from 1968-1983 and was very adaptable thanks to a folding windshield and removable doors. This VW Thing comes in vibrant Turquoise paint with a tan vinyl interior that is utilitarian for wherever you plan on taking this fun-filled classic. The 1835cc 4-cylinder, rear-mounted engine is 'numbers-matching' according to the seller and was rebuilt professionally just 3,000 miles ago. When you peek in the engine bay that work is clearly visible, and the result is a presentable and well-running motor. A 4-speed manual transmission accompanies this peppy air-cooled engine and is the only way to enjoy a true Volkswagen! Inside the Thing you'll see that the owner installed a CD Player/Radio unit so you can blast your favorites loud enough to hear over the wind is running through your hair. The back seats can be folded away for additional storage and yes, that is a surfboard in the back seat included with the sale... Owned in Arizona as far back as we have documentation on, this VW Thing is an attractive prospect to a classic car buyer as it's clear that rust is not an issue when you check out the floor pans or the undercarriage. Just think of how many puns or "Dad jokes" you can pull off on your friends and family owning a Volkswagen Thing?!
