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.
Seen here on The Samba.
Up for sale is a very original, good running ’85 Vanagon GL. Recent mechanical work includes a tune-up with new distributor cap and rotor, new plugs and air filter, oil and filter change, new battery, new thermostat and water pump, cooling system flush and a new clutch slave cylinder. Inside the original rear carpet was replaced and the middle seat removed for more storage. The middle seat will come with the sale. The bus runs well and starts every time. It still wears its original Dove Blue Metallic paint color although its showing its age. There is no rust underneath and the typical rear passenger side corner dent is small. The only rust on the bus is on the driver’s side nose above the headlight grill (see pictures). The rest of the seams are in great shape.

Imagine picking the kids up from school in this Vanagon. Up for sale on The Samba is a 1980 Transporter (Vanagon to us) Ambulance imported from Germany.
