Vehicle story

Offered here for all types of Island events is a cool “Thing” for your wedding, birthday, anniversary etc. This 1973 Volkswagen Thing also known as the Type 181- is rust-free thanks to having been completely restored inside and out. This unique vehicle is outfitted with a rebuilt 1.6L H4 rear-mounted, air-cooled engine, a 4-speed manual transmission, and rear-wheel drive. These fun vehicles have been climbing in collectability in recent years.

This example is finished in Dark Copper metallic with a Tan soft top and White vinyl seats. These vehicles are extremely versatile. Top comes off, windows come off, doors come off, back seats fold down, and the windshield folds down. Useful in a variety of situations, but in our minds this Thing is the perfect vehicle for a day at the beach. The exterior features chrome wheels, side brush bars, bonnet brush bar, tube frame bumpers front and rear, dual exhaust, and the usual angular body work. Overall the exterior is in very nice condition, we dare say it is close to being as clean as when it left the showroom. The car starts on command and drives great. Shifting, suspension, and handling are

The spartan interior features upgraded CD/radio deck, 3-spoke steering wheel, wooden floor grates, new upholstery on the seats, and the soft top is pristine. In the engine compartment is a rebuilt and very clean, 1600cc flat four engine mated to a 4 speed manual transmission.

This Thing starts on command and drives great; shifting and suspension/handling are all dialed in. This vehicle is a great collector car that you can enjoy on your way to the beach or the weekend car show. It will continue to appreciate over time if taken care of, and WILL get attention wherever driven and/or seen.
