That was Arno personal syncro, I've seen it at andreno when I went to visit last year January. I'm surprised he is selling it or sold it

What did you think of the Vehicle?
I imagine that the engine will put quite a bit of strain on the gearbox, I went for a spin in Arno's green Doka Syncro and that was very cool, it had a waterboxer flat four 2.6.

Apparently that thing ate gearboxes every 5-10 000km, and a Lexus is a kak motor anyway,

IMHo stay away, unless you pull the motor and put something smaller in, rest of the truck is nice

First off it is not a 1996 modle but an early air cooled body. Pre 1982. There are also far better engines out there than the Lexus.
There are also far far nicer syncros out there for this money.
