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. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.


Classic Car Overview

1973 Volkswagen VW Thing has 68xxx miles, but TMU. It is very solid and appears to not have any rust at all. I would speculate that this has been a southern car all its life. The floor pans are solid, the headlights are solid and the wheel wells all show clean. Floor of the trunk is original and also does not have any material rust issues (see pic). The carpet is meant for the Things and when I pull it up, the floor is solid and paint fresh. There isnt any appreciable overspray, so I assume they took it apart when it was painted. Was told that it was painted 2 owners ago. It isnt perfect or show quality but looks good and appears to be original color. The heater is there, and I am told works. The gauges and lights all work as intended. The gaskets are fresh and all there. The seat covers appear original and the seat padding is probably likewise. The back seats fold easily and the hardware to do so and support them is there and functions as expected. Doors open and close well the drivers door sticks slightly. The key works both the ignition and the door locks. The side windows are all removable and are plexiglass. Engine may or may not be original, and starts and runs nicely. It does not smoke, but prefers to be warm. Drives straight and true and will do 70 on the highway without any complaining. Some needed things: rebuilt the carb, replaced the tie rods, balanced the tires (also good) and replaced the gas tank with a brand new one and all new rubber to go with it. New 3 year battery and a weather proof car cover are both new as well. It has seatbelts in a box that will go with the car.
