Volkswagen Thing Parts


The Volkswagen Thing

The Volkswagen Thing, for American owners, is listed as being produced in 1973 and 1974. However the VW Thing, also referred to as Volkswagen Type 181 was manufactured from 1968 to 1983, primarily for the German military ! Many VW Thing parts are in common with the Volkswagen Beetle. The term "Volkswagen Thing" or "VW Thing" is really an American name applied only in the States. The German Volkswagen 'Thing' was referred to there as the "Kbelwagen."

Appeal of The VW Thing

As the Thing is a four door convertible and as importing The Thing into America was limited, and maybe mainly because it is such a unique looking car, it is considered a collector car. It is our duty to point out a few caveats for the VW Thing buyer or owner. First the Thing handles and brakes quite poorly. Safety features are about nil ! It is a major reason that the Volkswagen Thing came to a halt as an imported car. On the other hand Thing owners will never part with it. There is a love for the VW Thing that keeps its owners hopping to keep it going.
