1978 Volkswagen Thing

Gateway Classic Cars of Las Vegas is pleased to present this 1978 Volkswagen Thing. The type 81 has been in production basically the same from 1968 - 1983. Originally built as a military vehicle it transitions into a four-door cabriolet with a loyal following since inception. Covered in a sporty Red exterior with black vinyl interior. The black convertible retracks down easily. The rear-view window is nice and clear, the top and frame are in good working order. Inside is a Dual head unit with a Bluetooth capability unit along with a Sound-Pex Sound box in the rear behind the seats for quality volume music for the road. There are headlight guards and rear step on the back bumper. Wheels are capped with Dish hub caps. Power is put down by a 1600cc 4spd manual transmission just the way a VW should be equipped for the period. The mileage is showing at 42,807 undocumented. This is a vehicle that's meant to be outside and driven no matter the weather. A fuel-efficient engine mated to utilitarian body and a bullet proof design makes for a enjoyable car.
