1974 Volkswagen



The Volkswagen Type 181 “The Thing” was an updated version of the German military's Type 82 Kubelwagen and was a two-wheel drive, four-door, convertible, manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen from 1968 to 1983. . Rather than using the Type 82's mechanical setup, however, the Thing rode on a combination of a Beetle driveline and a Type II Transporter suspension. Like the rest of the VW lineup, the Type 181 placed the air-cooled, 1585cc engine in the rear and use the motor's 46hp to drive the rear wheels. This VW has been in Texas nearly it's entire life and is very solid. There are no rust issues or rot, just surface scaling. An electric fuel pump has been installed along with new wheel cylinders and newer radial tires. www.kuyothbody.com Email kuyothent@gmail.com or call 715-687-4522
