Detail by Owner
This is Volkswagen’s Thing
1974 Well cared for and garaged most of it’s entire life. I’m only the 3rd owner of it and have plenty off original paperwork about it’s care. Truly hate to part with it. We named him Bob…… He’s been in AZ for his first 3 years of life then purchased by the man whom I bought him from. That owner towed him all around behind his RV on hunting trips out side nice and dry Brownsville TX for 20+years. He was even painted a two tone brown ( same color as the RV ) when I got him, and had a snap canvas cover , Left the snaps on the car when I had him taken back to his orange…….I chose a Maserati orange with a pearl essence top coat. He’s a show stopper. Very well loved. There’s a great set of built in speakers in the front ( sounds great ) and a nice removable face radio. He currently has a boot cover over this roof. It was purchased from The Thing Shop. His bones are terrific. Not a lick of bad rust for a car of his age. It’s a true find. I searched for years. Not many in this original shape. Call or text any questions. I will be in LA this weekend to show him 8/29-9/1
