https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1987-volkswagen-single-cab-syncro/

This 1987 Volkswagen Transporter Syncro is a single-cab pickup powered by a 1.6L turbodiesel inline-four paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and Steyr-Puch designed all-wheel drive system. The truck reportedly received an engine rebuild to stock specifications, a repaint and new bed floor in 2016 before its acquisition in Belgium by the selling dealer in 2018. A set of GoWesty 16″ wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires have since been installed. This Syncro is offered by the selling dealer with its removed wheels and tires, a tonneau cover, and a clean Georgia title.

The previous owner reportedly had the truck repainted in its present green and reapplied factory 4WD and Syncro graphics in 2016 as well as replacing the Bed load surface. Wooden panels coated with spray-on bedliner are installed on the vertical panel surfaces, and the truck also features a folding rear step on the tailgate. A soft tonneau cover and frame are included in the sale.

The 1.6L turbodiesel inline-four is paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle with a low-ratio Gelande first gear. The Syncro all-wheel drive system was designed and built by Steyr-Puch of Austria, and features a locking rear differential as well as a viscous center differential to send power to the front wheels. The exhaust system currently features an open turbocharger and no muffler, and the stock exhaust system will be included in the sale. The engine was rebuilt to stock specifications in 2016, and has reportedly covered just 5k kilometers since the rebuild. An oil and filter change was reportedly performed just before the seller’s acquisition and the seller has serviced the truck since his purchase.
