Classic Car Overview

The Thing variant was specifically designed for two legendary, high-end resorts in Acapulco, a popular resort city in Mexico and destination du jour for Hollywood A-list celebrities in the 1960s and 1970s. As the Thing was assembled in Puebla, Mexico, the oceanfront hotels used the boxy beach cruiser to shuttle wealthy vacationers from the airport and the citys sun-kissed shoreline. The Acapulco Things popularity among the hotels ritzy, jet-setting clientele led Volkswagen to produce a limited run of the resort cruiser about 400 cars in total from May to July of 1974. This 1974 Volkswagen Thing Acapulco Edition is one of approximately 400 examples produced by Volkswagen Mexico for the US market in 1974. The Acapulco is distinguished from other Things by its striped soft top and upholstery, as well as the blue-painted hood, dash panel, rocker panels, and bumpers. Power comes from a 1.6-liter flat-four mated with a 4-speed manual transaxle. 38,000 original milesplease call john at 419-277-9584
