Classic Car Overview

Theres nothing else quite like the 1974 Volkswagen Type 181 Thing out there, and so they are instantly recognizable. And since they were only officially imported to the USA for two years, they are exceptionally rare. But nearly a half-century later, not all of these are presented equally. This one is a cut-above with a comprehensive restoration that was completed in 2022 with over $23k invested. This includes rebuilding the motor, rebuilding the transaxle, and a respray of the unique Acapulco Edition color theme. And as you look through the full package, even the detailed components look fresh, including the Hella fog lights, clear fender lights, running board rubber, and full convertible top with side curtains. The result is one of the most impressive ways to make sure your rare VW gets the admiration it deserves. HIGHLIGHTS Comprehensive two-tone blue and white Acapulco Thing color theme Full respray looking fresh and clean Excellent convertible top with side curtains Hella fog lights Upholstery follows the two-tone color theme Upgraded sports steering wheel Hardy VW Beetle 1600cc air-cooled flat-four German Motor Works engine rebuild June 2022 (over $3k invested) Four-speed manual transmission Transaxle assembly rebuilt with the new clutch in June 2022 KYB shocks Exceptionally fresh suspension components and undercarriage for real driving confidence We love how this is a stunner, and yet, still a proper driver. Some things have changed from an original Acapulco Thing, like utilizing a full soft top and side curtains, which makes this feel a lot more practical. But they kept many items inside looking stock. It gives character to the wood slats in the floors, and it makes the full package feel more user-friendly. And the largest variation from stock youll likely recognize is the steering wheel. This leather-wrapped sports unit gives you a terrific grip - another sign that this Thing was made for driving. So you have a rare car that was originally built for fun, and a restoration that ensures you get to have it on day one. Its why you need this bright two-tone Acapulco Thing in your life right now.
