Description for Volkswagen Thing 1975


This beautiful 1975 VW Thing is one of the very few ‘75’s that made it into the US, and is ready to enjoy for the summer!

Sporting new paint, new interior, and a rebuilt engine, this Thing is ready to enjoy summer drives to the beach with the top down! The repaint is in excellent condition, and the bullet proof air cooled rear engine that VW is so famous for runs as it should. Things aren’t known for their performance, but this car will cruise down the highway without difficulty. The 4 speed manual transmission shifts great without issues or noises. All of the lights, horn, gauges, and windshield wipers are in working order, and the convertible top and frame are also in great condition. The car also comes with a complete set of drop in windows that are in excellent condition. The front windows even feature roll down vents- a rare option! The four doors lift off smoothly, and the windshield folds down without issue.

This Thing was moved to NY six months ago, but lived the rest of its life in sunny Southern California. That being sad, there are no rust issues- no holes, bubbles, etc.

Recent upgrades include a new battery, new carburetor, four new tires, and new chrome hub caps.

The only flaws to point out are:

- A rock chip in the windshield

- The rear window vinyl needs to be replaced

As a classic car enthusiast, I have owned many different cars, but this VW is my absolute favorite. Here are a few reasons why you would also love to own this one:

-It is incredibly easy to maintain, since it has the same powertrain as the Super Beetle, and parts are readily available.

-Being a four door convertible, it is our go-to car to bring the whole family to the beach or car show.

-It uses much less fuel when compared to other vehicles from this era.

-It draws a crowd. Whether we are at the beach, at a car cruise, or just grabbing dinner, we are constantly being waved down, getting thumbs up, or explaining to a crowd what exactly this “Thing” is.

Don’t miss your chance on owning this low production VW collectible. If you’re looking for an affordable convertible that fits the whole family, easy to maintain, and fun to drive- then this is your car!
