10k: Syncro de Mayo: 1990 Volkswagen Type 2 (T3) Syncro Doka

Welcome to Daily Turismo’s Syncro de Mayo, our May 5th celebration of all Volkswagen’s four wheel drive system known as Syncro.  Up first is a fantastic combination of VW’s Syncro system in a factory El Caminoized double cab (Doka, which comes from the German word for double cab– Doppelkabine) Volkswagen Type 2 (T3).  Find this 1990 Volkswagen Type 2 (T3) Syncro Doka  offered for $10,000 in Saginaw, MI via craigslist.  Tip from Andy L. 

The seller indicates that this is Doka is now powered by a Subaru powerplant (probably a flat-4 from a Legacy) and the original Wasserboxer engine is long gone.  The diamond plate bumper, sun visor, truck exhaust and bed rails are home-made pieces. 

 It is unfortunate that the original folding truck bed sides are gone but finding a Sycro Doka in any shape is a rare treat.  See another Syncro for less? tips@dailyturismo.com
