For Sale: 1974 Volkswagen Thing in Atlanta, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1974 Volkswagen Type 181 Thing. The Thing was only sold in the US for two model years - 1973 and 1974; despite its relatively high price at the time, it was quite popular and retains a loyal following.

This example is straight and solid with a good quality repaint in Atlas White (cream) with appropriate "The Thing" side stripes. The interior is no frills but offers nicely upholstered seats and a roll bar along with Cocoa mats. A full soft top is fitted with removable side curtains. Newer tires are on factory wheels with chrome hubcaps.

Power comes from VW's 1.6 liter flat four that is shared with the Beetle - it starts easily and runs well, and of course parts availability is excellent. Recent service has included four new shocks, timing and carburetor adjustment, rebuilt pedal assembly, tie rods, wheels bearings, oil cooler and rear main seal, clutch and cable, front brakes, steering coupler, speedo cable and more.

It doesn't get much more fun than driving a Thing with the top down. Recent service records and a reproduction owners manual are included. For more information about this 1974 Volkswagen Thing for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
