This Thing is a ton of fun!

This Thing is a ton of fun to drive and is always up to having some fun anywhere any time! Topless, doors off and if you really want to experience the fresh air blowing through your hair, then fold the windshield down too! So simple and stress free to use. Originally designed by the Germans for World War II, then later became available to the public for 2 short years. Produced in 1973 and 74 only. Designed for all terrain, has a high ground clearance for off road and beach use. EXTERIOR: One of the best looking Things I have seen. Great color and the black bumpers and stripes look great. Bumpers were powder coated. The custom 2 piece 15" Baja steel wheels and chrome center caps with brand new oversized tires give it that rugged off road look. Solid body with nice paint. There are some insignificant nicks and scratches that come from use but otherwise it looks great. The sheet metal is straight, the doors fit well too. The windshield easily folds down, doors easily remove. Complete set of side curtains with steel frames (hard to come by) and a brand new convertible top. INTERIOR: Very versatile interior. Black vinyl bucket seats up front and a bench in back. The rear seats fold down for hauling whatever. It a 5-seater so you can take the whole family and believe me the kids will be begging for rides. There are actually drain holes in the floor and a new marine radio if you did get rained on. There are custom speakers up front and a set of removable speakers in the rear. A new carpet kit and console where added modernize the interior. Who doesn't want a cup holder in a four speed.ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The air-cooled 1600 cc motor runs and drives great. It has a fresh tune up, new fuel system with new carburetor. New EMPI exhaust. This is same engine you find in a Bug, Bus,and Karmann Ghia. Parts are readily available, upgrades are easy and cheap. They are known for practically running forever with very little maintenance.The 4-speed manual transmission shifts smooth with the EMPI short throw shifter. UNDERSIDE: The floor pans are in very good shape.The suspension is also from the Bug and Karmann Ghia, so there are a lot of upgrades and parts available. The brakes have been redone with new shoes, hardware, wheel cylinder and hoses.This Thing is smooth going down the road at highway speeds. The speedo is even accurate. You can drive it to the beach, to the campsite, or down the toll road on your next road trip. I have driven everything from the Batmobile to Duesenbergs and 800 hp muscle cars. The Thing is as fun as any of those. My daughter begs me to go for rides. People's reaction is great. You will get more thumbs up and smiles then with any other car. The best part is- it isn't $100,000. 20% chance of rain, so what. Gravel road, so what. Get a nick- touch it up. No worries, just enjoy it!
