GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this unique 1992 Volkswagen T3 Syncro Doka Transporter, a remarkable vehicle with a history as a former fire truck from Skien, Norway. After serving its community with distinction until 2015, it joined a private collection in Germany before being imported to the United States in early 2024. This distinctive Doka Syncro is now ready for its next adventure with a clean green Michigan title and all duties and customs paid.

Under the hood, you’ll find the robust 2.1L 4-cylinder engine producing 112 horsepower, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission featuring a super low crawler gear. The Syncro 4-wheel drive system ensures this Volkswagen is ready to tackle any terrain, making it an excellent choice for off-road enthusiasts. The 15-inch wheels are wrapped in BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires, providing excellent traction and stability on both paved roads and rugged trails.

The exterior of this Doka Syncro is painted in its original red and white, a nod to its days as a fire truck. The cloth interior offers comfortable seating for five, making it practical for both work and leisure. The vehicle features fold-down bed walls that transform it into a flatbed, enhancing its versatility. Additionally, the wood slats in the cargo bed add a touch of classic style, while the “treasure chest” under-bed storage compartment provides convenient extra space for tools or gear.

The Volkswagen Doka, short for Doppelkabine, is a rare and versatile variant of the iconic VW Transporter. Originally designed for commercial and utility purposes, the Doka gained popularity for its robust construction and practical design. The Syncro version, introduced in the mid-1980s, added a 4-wheel drive system, significantly improving its off-road capabilities. Over the years, the Doka Syncro has become a sought-after model among collectors and enthusiasts, prized for its unique combination of functionality and classic VW charm. This particular vehicle, with its firefighting heritage and impeccable condition, stands as a testament to the durability and timeless appeal of the Volkswagen brand.

Beyond its firefighting past, the Doka Syncro’s design has proven highly adaptable for a variety of uses. Its dual-cab configuration offers additional passenger space compared to traditional single-cab pickups, making it ideal for both family adventures and work crews. The flatbed conversion capability, along with the robust 4WD system, allows it to handle everything from transporting goods across challenging terrains to serving as a reliable overlanding vehicle. Its compact form, combined with impressive load-carrying capacity and versatile functionality, makes the Doka Syncro a beloved choice for those seeking a vehicle that truly does it all.
