What do you know about the history of the car from new?
This VW BAY WINDOW DOKA 1973 is a perfect example of a survivor thanks to the loving care of the previous owner. Manufactured in Germany and sold new on the Island of La Palma, in Spain in December of 1973. This Doka has always been used by a woman to transport vegetables, from her husband's cultivated fields to the island markets. In 2015 he was parked in a barn until our find.
This CREW CAB preserves the original gray paint (code L 345) and the beige interioris. Some parts were later retouched with L345 paint such as the driver's door.This DOKA is sold with the original rims and also with the 17 "Fuchs Rims both with tires. Power is from the believed numbers-matching 1.6-liter air-cooled flat four mated to a 4-speed manual transaxle routing power to the rear wheels. After the purchase, in order to make this "commercial" vehicle more attractive, we applied SERVICE PORSHE stickers on both ports and Fuchs 17 "rims with 215/40 / R17 lowered tires. This Doka is now in Santa Cruz De La Palme, Spain with valid technical inspection, with Spanish documents in the name of my company.
