VW T25 T3 Syncro Doka for sale *DEPOSIT TAKEN*

1990 Left hand drive VW T3/T25/Vanagon double cab Syncro (DOKA) , 1.6 Turbo Diesel 14”

 

The owner says, 

“It’s with a heavy heart that the decision to sell this syncro  has been made, I use it as my daily driver but on occasions my wife has to use it as well, this just isn’t a vehicle for my wife to use regularly, so we have bought a new defender. When I started to look for a Syncro Doka I wanted something original that hadn’t been messed around with, I looked far and wide until I found this little gem, owned from new by a farmer in the arctic circle!! Its been very well looked after and serviced by the supplying dealer all its life with all the service stamps and original books to show! The Doka starts and drives absolutely faultless, in fact I encourage any potential buyer to go and test drive some other I have had many many VW’s including T3’s and this is by very far the best I have driven. I bought this Syncro with the intention of keeping it for a long time, absolutely nothing has been done half heartedly everything I have had done or bought for this truck has been nothing short of the best available.”

The truck was first registered on the 14th of December 1990, its running its original 1.6td JX engine, its got full service history by the supplying dealer until 2009 when it was taken off the road due to clutch failure. The condition of the syncro I would describe as genuine and original, its got its fair share of bumps and grinds but its 25 years old and all original, to me I would rather see this than a restoration hiding all sorts, the under side of the truck is absolutely solid, no corrosion etc just the original paint and remains of some under seal, its got nothing to hide. The locker is spotless inside, the interior is spotless without any damage to the trims etc, rear bed is boarded to the drop downs from new, and chequer plated over the bed, again no corrosion at all.

Specification,

EVERY SINGLE new part that’s gone into this is less than 1 year old and have seen nothing more than 500 miles.

VW T4 Syncro 2.4 Diesel, LWB, LHD – FOR SALE

 

The owner says,

 

Up for a very reluctant sale is my Vw LWB LHD Syncro which I’ve own for 2 seasons. I am the third owner. The first was Fred Emery the spy who wrote the Watergate saga who had it built for taking him and his wife to Switzerland to attend ballroom dancing events. It was converted in Germany, straight from the factory and from what I’m told was fitted out by a coach builder who worked with Reimo. The interior is dated but the build quality is immense. Grey is not everybody’s cup of tea but it certainly is functional interior. Whenever anything has needed to be replaced it has been done and I have a mountain of service history to prove so. The van has an LEZ exemption certificate which was sorted out by Fred. This exemption is with the current private number plate M2 FAE so will be staying on the van. Quite handy. It has been a great van and has never let me down and only this weekend done a run from West Wales to dubfreeze in Stafford. My partner and I have had many great trips away in it, featured it in VW T4 T5 bus mag and its even been used as a hire vehicle for site based film recordings.

Its no show and shine van and has a few very small dents and marks but nothing major. After all its a Syncro and made for an adventure not for looking at!

I think this van is an ideal base for an Overlander and ready to take you wherever you set your sights on.
I will be very sorry to see it go but needs must and the funds will be financing a step on the property ladder!”

VW T5 4Motion 4×4 aurora hunter Camper Van – NOW SOLD

 

 

The owner says,

 “I built my camper van primarily to chase the Northern Lights and have so far managed to see them twice in the UK so it’s completely met my goals. Although I hoped to see the lights in the UK, I actually built it for a trip to Norway so it is based on a T5 130 4Motion, an honest, fully serviced ex-Orange mobile van with air con and the electric pack, I’ve fitted loads of insulation and an Eberspacher D2 diesel heater, so it’s been equally competent at Aviemore for snowboarding or a hot summer in Newquay for surfing.”

Toyota Landcruiser LC4 Turbo Diesel (manual) Overland Vehicle ready to go.

The owner says,

“This Landcruiser has been fully prepared to a high standard for extreme off-roading in remote environments. It has been built to reflect it’s role as a support vehicle accompanying motorbike expeditions in the Sahara amongst other places in N.Africa.

No expense has been spared in kitting out and maintaining the vehicle, only original parts and the best aftermarket parts used. We purchased the vehicle to be our family’s main mode of transport when we emigrated to Southern Africa however due to economic reasons we decided to come back after 6 months and luckily decided to delay shipping the vehicle. Now we’re back it’s time that it moved on and is used for the purpose it was built for.

The Landcruiser drives really well, benefitting from a Dastek 30HP chip which increases power and delivers an extra 43Lbft of torque enabling it to do a bit more than just keeping up with traffic even when fully loaded. Even though the vehicle is significantly higher than a standard LC4 due to the 30mm spacers the vehicle feels nicely planted on the road even in windy conditions and when off road there is no lurching from side to side on uneven ground when travelling at speed.

There are no dents or scratches to any body panel and overall condition is excellent.” Continue reading

1986 VR6 powered Galvanised Syncro for sale. £18000 NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

The owner says,

“This unique van is the only one I know of that has taken a galvanising bath before paint. There are no rust problems anywhere and the paint was refreshed last year. The van drives very nicely with 190bhp, poly bushes and power steering. It is a left hand drive originally coming from a VW engineer from the Hanover factory but don’t let that put you off. I have very recently replaced the suspension with powder coated items and at the same time replaced all the wheel bearings, ball joints and all bushes with poly bushes. It rides superbly with very little roll. I am selling because I just don’t use it any more. The kids are teenagers now and won’t come camping so it just sits in the garage forlornly. I am currently building a T4 syncro as well which will replace this and my daily driver so despite what my heart tells me the beast needs to go. ” Continue reading

VW T3/T25/Vanagon Syncro 2.1dj petrol (lpg) RHD NOW SOLD.

The owner says,

” My wife and I are changing our set up a bit which means I will be around for the kids a bit more as well as going part time self employed. Unfortunately the company car will go so my current ‘leisure vehicle’ will become my daily driver. As I will be doing quite a few motorway miles for work and to visit family up country, it doesn’t make sense to be pushing the Syncro up and down the M5, so I am going to have to get something that is a bit more modern and that I am bit less precious about. So for sale is my pride and joy…..” Continue reading
