Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is pleased to digitally present a
classic and rare 1973 Volkswagen Thing. This is the first year the
utilitarian Volkswagen was imported into the United States.
Originally developed for the West German army in 1968, the
Volkswagen Type 181 as it was known, became a favorite of
adventure-minded consumers. Our Thing has been owned by the seller
for the last 20 years, and has had the floor pans replaced with OEM
pieces. It's powered by a 1.5L air-cooled 4-cylinder engine and
4-speed manual transmission. It has a gas heater for colder
climates. Clad in white with a black vinyl interior, this example
of an iconic German design shows it's been thoroughly used and
enjoyed. To view this 1973 Volkswagen Thing in greater detail,
including HD pictures and video, find us online at
