Restored to perfection w upgrades: disc brakes, Alpine sound system, LED lights

This 1974 Volkswagen Thing Acapulco Edition is believed to be one of approximately 400 examples produced by Volkswagen Mexico for the US market in 1974 because the VIN number falls in the range of the 400. The Acapulco is distinguished from other Things by its striped soft top and upholstery, as well as the blue-painted hood, dash panel, and rocker panels. Power comes from a 1.6-liter flat-four mated with a 4-speed manual transaxle.
This particular example has been updated with front disc brakes, Porsche style alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and a LED light system under the soft top!
Recent work includes rebuilt transmission, new alternator, new voltage regulator, tune up, new master brake cylinder, new turn signal switch, new speedometer, new fuel gauge, new electric wiper motor, new upper and lower ball joints, H4 headlights, and new Alpine CD/USB receiver with Bluetooth.
