Interior Highlights

The interior of this vehicle is in excellent condition as can be seen in the pictures. The interior features very sharp black vinyl bucket seats, that are in excellent shape and are very comfortable. The rear bench seat is also black vinyl and excellent. The Thing has an excellent top that is in great condition with a clear rear window and like new side plastic removable windows. The entire interior is in great shape including the instrument panel, dash, and all interior hardware. The dash includes the speedometer and an auxillary tachometer. The interior floorpan is in excellent shape and painted black. The storage area is neat, and very clean and solid. This is truly a Thing you can get in and enjoy from day one.

Exterior Highlights

The exterior of the car is stunning with the top on or off. The Thing is finished in Clemson orange paint that is in great shape but does show some shade variation due to touch ups, the Thing script on the bottom of this Thing really sets it off. The removable black top really sets the vehicle off or take it off for a different look and feel completely. The body on this vehicle is excellent, the body fit is about as good as it gets. The doors on the Thing open and close with ease. The exterior hardware is all in excellent shape and is fully functional. The vehicle has new tires mounted on steel wheels with shiny moon VW hubcaps. The rear tail lights and front fog lights are excellent. This Thing has awesome curb appeal and gets attention everywhere it goes.

Mechanical Highlights

Mechanically this is a turn-key purchase. The vehicle is equipped with it’s air cooled 4 Cylinder engine. The engine compartment is in great shape and is neat and clean. The vehicle is fitted with it’s original 4 speed manual transmission that shifts smoothly. The vehicle starts, runs, drives, and stops as it should.

The odometer on this thing reads 66,835, the title reads non-actual.

These Things have always been a rare find in a quality condition and those that are left are appreciating in value, this is a fine example of a very solid and cool Thing in a condition that is very difficult to come by. This is truly an opportunity to INVEST in something you have always wanted
