1991 Volkswagen DoKa Tristar Syncro

$_57 (1)

We’ve seen all sorts of DoKas here, from ex-military workers to high-dollar Tristar examples. The Tristar package brought nicer upholstery and full carpeting, creating a more comfortable environment than the typical metal-and-floor mats worktruck interior. This DoKa also has Syncro, adding a few more items to its long list of capabilities. You could take on just about any light-duty work or off-roading in this truck, but you might be hesitant to put it in harm’s way due to the amazing condition. 70k miles total miles would be low on its own, but this DoKa has a new engine, suspension, brakes, fuel system, and cooling system. The original exterior paint looks great and the repainted bed looks even better. Each extra word on this verbose model name adds serious value, and the seller claims it has been professionally appraised for almost $80k!

The red Tristar we saw earlier this year went for $38k and was in worse shape, had more miles, and lacked $yncro. Doubling that seems extreme, but as is typical with desirable oddities like this: find another one! As clean as could be with all of the right options, this is the top of the DoKa game. With a $65k starting bid, we’ll see if the person out there who wants the best DoKa out there (they exist, somewhere…) is ready to make the investment.
