Classic Car Overview

1974 Volkswagen Type 181 The Thing This vehicle has received a fresh restoration in a deep blue with color matched wheels. Upholstered in black vinyl with matching removable soft top. The engine is built on Type 1 EO 1300cc air cooled flat-four. Formally in the Gregorie Neck Collection The Volkswagen Type 181 The Thing was an updated version of the German militarys Type 82 Kubelwagen. Rather than using the Type 82s mechanical setup, however, the Thing rode on a combination of a Beetle driveline and a Type II Transporter suspension. Like the rest of the VW lineup, the Type 181 placed the air-cooled, 1300cc engine in the rear and use the motors horsepower to drive the rear wheels. Much like during its two-year production run, the Volkswagen Thing today is a quirky, eye-catching ride. Its bright and wild 1970s colors, combined with the convertibles boxiness make it stand out in a sea of uniform cars. Models from 1974 are slightly more desirable due to their horsepower, though condition and color tend to drive value more than model year.
