For Sale: 1973 Volkswagen Thing in Rowlett, Texas

Vehicle Description

Wow, you will love this THING!

Up for sale is a very cool 1973 VW THING. It’s a rare THING indeed, a four door convertible! You don't see THINGS like that every day. The THING about THINGS is they are so ugly they are cute, sort of.

This THING has a strong 1600cc motor, it shifts nicely through all four gears and doesn't pop out of reverse like so many of these THINGS. This THING cruises without straining too much on the highway and the THING tracks straight and handles true, some THING you might not expect of a THING. And another THING, the rear mounted engine gives this THING excellent off road traction, if that's your THING.

The paint on this THING is shiny but it has its shares of dings and scratches. But there isn't any rust on it and that makes this THING a better THING than any THING that is all rusted. The interior on the THING is in great shape and most of the gauges and all of the lights work as they should on the THING.

This THING has a folding soft top and some side curtains that have seen better days. The THING to consider about the top and windows is that I have owned half a dozen of these darned THINGS and have never driven one yet in the rain on purpose. The THING is a four door convertible for Pete's sake (who is Pete?); wind in the hair, sun in your face, everyone waving and giving thumbs up to you in your THING.

If you don't like attention, then don't even THING about buying this THING

So finally, here is the THING; I have had my fun in the THING and am ready for the next guy or gal to experience what this THING is all about. Another THING, these THINGS are becoming very desirable to stuck up snobby collectors who are willing to pay a lot of dough for these silly THINGS. So, if you buy the THING, it’s like an investment. You can probably read about that in that book “THING and Grow Rich”.

This THING is located in Rowlett, Texas and is offered as is where is. If the ad is up this THING is for sale. Please no low ball offers or scammers because I really don't like those THINGS. Call, text or reply if you want to talk about this THING.
