For Sale: 1973 Volkswagen Thing in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

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.
