Description

Lot #634 - Volkswagen Thing with full body-off restoration. Thing Shop parts used exclusively if new old stock parts were not available. Great attention to detail to maintain the original look and appearance as delivered in 1973. Restoration started off with a very dry original Arizona car from new, then restored to factory specifications. The convertible top and frame is the best Thing Shop top available on the market. Every minor detail was carefully maintained as to not over restore the car, keeping every detail unique to the original build quality. Car is represented here in its original colors as it was delivered in 1973. Even the smallest detail was focused on during the restoration, leaving details often missed in many quality restorations.
