FS: 1990 factory 16” Syncro Doka (double cab pick-up) with 1.8T

SOLD. $54,900 obo; located in Jackson, WY

This is a beautiful example of a very hard to get vehicle. Estimates are 300 were made and maybe there are a dozen in the U.S. The factory 16" package compared to the standard 14" means longer rear trailing arms, bigger fender wells and lips, larger CV joints, skid plate, larger brakes, B column is stiffer reinforced steel, reinforced shock absorber flanges and, of course, 16" wheels.

Complete turn-key camping set-up. Drives well, the 1.8T makes it much more useful than the original. Lots of bells and whistles. Fly into Jackson Hole, buy the truck, tour Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone and then drive it home!

Approx. 103,300 miles – When importing this, a MPH speedo was required to be put in but as there were no Speedos for 16” in MPH it has a 14” speedo and odometer so the miles are not exact.
