Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this right-hand
drive 1974 Volkswagen Thing. The Thing is widely considered to be
easy to repair and indestructible. While the memories of the Thing
in Germany are more related to the armed forces or community
service, the angular convertible with the tent roof has always been
the practical alternative to the buggy for the Americans. Like the
Bug, the VW Thing had the engine mounted in the rear, so the
primary function of the front end of the car, besides carrying the
spare tire and the gas tank, was serving as a trunk. On top of
mounting the same 46 HP four-cylinder as the Bug, this car of
military roots shared other elements such as the transmission,
suspension, and chassis. Although it was not a four-wheel-drive
vehicle or classified as a buggy, its personality led to it being
classified as an off-road vehicle. It's easy to take off all four
doors in minutes, throw back the PVC convertible top, fold down the
front windshield, and have an instant Dune Buggy on your hands.
Finished in Sunshine Yellow with a Brown and Black Interior. if

in the back, don't hesitate to call and add this Thing to your
