Classic Car Overview

This is a 1972, not a 1973 or 1974. Made for France only, imported

Proudto offer this stunning, very original, very rare, true 1972 Volkswagen THINGthat was a single-family owned vehicle since new. The car was imported from France.It still bares the European taillights, the French VW Club Emblem and theFrench License Plates. THING has a no-frills interior with a KW speedometer. ThisVW THING is a ton of fun to drive! Lay that manual convertible top down, laythat front window down, lift out the 4 side windows, and truly enjoy the road. Powereda RECENTLY REBUILT 1600-cc air-cooled VW engine (HAVE RECEIPTS). Also new are, topand side windows, new clutch kit, starter, Intake and exhaust gasket, tailoredresistor ignition wire set, contact set, distributor rotor, distributor cap, condenser,spark plugs, mechanical fuel pump and brakes. The carburetor has been rebuilt. TheTHING was built to last and called the Trekker in France. It is in the original,believed to be the color Pastel White paint, “not” restored but the “originalpaint”, and the age gives this THING a cool classic look and makes it that muchmore rare. The motor is an air-cooled 4-cylinder power plant located in therear. She comes with a 4-speed manual transmission, the only way they wereoffered, that is ready to be driven around the country side or to car shows. Thetop is brand new along with the side windows. This THING, has vinyl bucket seats with a bench inthe back. The odometer is showing 80,178 miles that we believe to be the miles.Options and features that come with this 1974 Volkswagen THING are little tonone. The car has manual convertible top, 4 like-new tires that are wrapped aroundpatina steel wheels with the chrome VW hub caps. This THING is a real 1972THING and extremely rare. We investigated a re-paint but was told that becausethis THING is so original, that it has a greater value left as original as yousee it. We have a copy of the owner’s manual, in French. The VW THING was only soldin the United States in 1973 and 1974. Since this car is from France and a 1972,it is highly collectable. This THING is a time capsule and a very rare car.
