Coming from what appears to be the same New Jersey importer/seller as yesterday’s Golf Country is another Syncro special, the beloved Transporter DoKa. This one eschews common add-ons like lights, bullbars, and bumpers for a unique aluminum rolltop utility body over the bed. The rest is just clean, straight, and like-new. Bucket seats up front give a slightly more comfortable look to the interior than the common work-truck bench seen in DoKas, and from the roof to the undercarriage and the under-bed storage bin in between. One thing I can’t figure out is the zippers in the headliner; any ideas, readers?
Overall, it’s as nice as T3 VWs come without too many frills but plenty of capability. With no-reserve, we should get an interesting look at how hot the market is getting for the now easily-importable DoKa Syncros.

The fact that this seller is putting these cars up with no reserve blows my mind. We’ve featured a couple of comparable Doka Syncros here recently, priced at $55k and $65k respectively. Neither has sold at that mark, perhaps indicating that the newly-removed importation restrictions are undercutting these seller’s hopes of huge profits. With no reserve on this unique example, we should get a look at what the eBay market thinks is a fair price. Wherever it lands, I think we can mark it as a baseline value for a nearly perfect, like-new DoKa Syncro.
