3k: 3 For 1: 1973/74 Volkswagen Things

If you are interested in starting your very own Volkswagen Thing junkyard, boy are you in luck today. The Type 181/182 started life as a military vehicle, originally designed to be a short term substitute for the Europa Jeep.  Good condition Things are starting to command significant dollar values, so getting three of them for cheap doesn’t seem bad at all.  Find these three 1973/74 Volkswagen Things for sale in Oakley, CA for $3,300 via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The Type 181 is a rugged looking, 4-door, rear-engine, rear-drive, convertible that was designed based on a military spec, not focus groups or a marketing department.  The result is a form-follows-function design that maximizes interior space, off-road capability, and serviceability – with little thought to style and fashion.
