Vehicle Details

1973 VW Type 181 Thing

1600cc dual port engine.

New carb and fuel pump. Engine leaks oil like most old VWs. While it is running and driving good, I think it would be a good time for a good tune up with adjusting valves, replacing plugs, etc.

Runs, drives, and stops good. Transaxle has no grinds or pop outs.

YouTube video of walk around of it:

New mud terrain tires.

Custom built roll bar

Custom removable bikini top.

This is setup to be a sunny day car. It does not have the windows or windshield wipers.

Fresh desert sand rhino liner paint.

Seats are all in good shape with no tears.

It does have some rust here and there. Worst spot I’ve seen is below battery.

Overall a pretty solid, good running/driving Thing.

I have tried to list it the best that I can, but I am sure that there are things that I have forgotten/missed. Please understand that this is an almost 50 year old car and is not perfect.

Fuel gauge and speedometer are not currently working.

Please feel free to ask any questions. I am happy to take any additional pictures/videos that you would like. If you are local, you are welcome to setup coming to look at it in person.

Car is sold as is where is in Loganville, GA. I am happy to work with a shipper as long as they were coming at a time when I am not at work.

Seller's NotesNon-refundable deposit due through PayPal within 24 hours. Remaining balance must be via cash in person or bank wire transfer only. I will not accept PayPal for the entire transaction, only the deposit.
