VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

1973 VW Thing 4 speed with 1600 air cooled motor, runs good, mostly stock but here are the modifications.  New White Top replaced Black top within the last 2 years, the rear window of the top is clear.  Winch 4500 lbs capacity and bumper guard added with winch plate to original bumper.  The winch is not wired up at this time and has never been used.  It has some aftermarket driving lights and fog lights that are wired into a stock panel along with some other aux lighting and modifications.  It has another stock panel for the old Blaupunkt tape player stereo system.  Newer muffler that does not exit out the stock bumper holes in the rear.  New EMPI shifter put in to shorten the throw on the linkage and improve shifting.  New EMPI carb and cleaner with sea level jets, run's rich at altitude.  I just replaced the wiper motor with a stock rebuilt 2 speed motor along with the blades and cleaned up the wiring harness for the wiper motor.  It has a custom glove box cover that I have not installed yet. The ugly rust  and holes on the rear quarter panels is going to require some repair and welding work the rest of the body is relatively rust free, please refer to the pictures.
