Do your own "THING!" Rare, One-Owner VW Thing with Two Tops.

Man, this THING is cool - a real head turner!

Purchased new here in Tennessee by a local doctor, this one-owner THING comes with the original window sticker, title, owner's manual, and receipt for license plate tags from 1973. It also retains the original pop-in side windows in their factory storage pouch.

This rust-free THING has been treated to one repaint in its correct color and is in excellent condition. According to the original owner, the car has actually been driven only a fraction of the miles showing. The majority of its miles were accumulated behind the family's RV while traveling the countryside.

One special and extremely rare option included with this car is the factory "Surrey Top" in blue/white stripes. This was purchased from the dealer when new.

This Volkswagen THING, Type -181, is a special car in Volkswagon's history. Cars of this quality are extremely rare and are becoming more sought-after daily.
