Rare for Over Here: 1984 Volkswagen Transporter DOKA Pickup
Found here on eBay is a 1984 Volkswagen Double Cab Transporter. This Doka started life in Europe but was brought over by a previous owner to roam the roads of the Southeast. The Doka has recently been repainted in its original Brilliant Orange color. The paint shines very well and there is zero rust anywhere on the truck. The bed, fold down inners and lower ¼ sections have all been sprayed with bed liner to guard against stone chips. The 1.9l Wasserboxer runs well and breathes through an original Solex carburetor. The exhaust will need replacing as it has a couple holes however it does not leak oil or coolant. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly into all gears.
Inside, things are in nice shape for a utilitarian truck. The original front seats have a couple of cracks as does the rear bench. The floors, rubber mats and door cards are all in good shape. The Doka shows 86k kilometers (still metric) though the odometer may have rolled once putting the mileage more likely at 111k miles.
Up top, a custom Yakima roof rack will give you plenty of room to stash anything needed for a weekend camping trip leaving the bed open for bikes, boats, etc. The Doka is sitting on 17” five star alloy wheels with 215/50 tires that have plenty of life left in them.
Load up this rare piece of German iron and hit the road for your next adventure.
The Transporter has a clear Georgia title and is located in Athens, GA. Feel free to email with questions.
