Please visit for additional photos, information and a video. If Germany made a Jeep, it would be the Volkswagen Thing! These are tough and rugged SUVs with removable doors, fold down windshield and easily removable top provides for a full open driving experience. VW Things are easy to work on and cheap to maintain, making them fun to own. This example has over $22,000 spent on the restoration and about 6,000 miles since the engine was rebuilt. The body was media blasted to bare metal and repainted in a cool Sand Beige color. Match that with a black interior and black top, and you’ve got a real head turner. The inside of the tub has been done in bedliner, so it is easy to clean after a day at the beach. It comes with a lot of extra parts if you’d like to take some things back to stock, or have extras just in case. This Thing has a new clutch, new battery, new e-brake, locking glovebox door, custom weatherproof sound system, and a cool canvas bimini top! The rear seat has been replaced with a custom rear seat that turns into a bed, but the stock seat comes with it as well. It has a roll cage that looks great, helps keep the top tight and provides some extra insurance should you decide to take this baby down some trails! The engine is a 1973-1974 VW 1,600 CC mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. A custom exhaust system gives this Things a very sporty sound and looks great.
