I’m not a big VW guy, but the oddly-named Things are so unique as to be lovable. The seller describes the body as being fair, but I don’t see anything objectionable in the photos and it looks like the top works. In addition to being slower than dirt, VWs are known for rust, so it would behoove any potential purchaser to inspect it closely. The interior is a little worn, but I don’t know what looked like originally – it might have never had door panels or carpeting. Regardless, three grand or less for a fun convertible is a pretty good deal if it’s solid and you don’t mind using an hourglass to measure the 0-60 time.
