An original 1989 Syncro T25/T3 ? with factory high top turned into a capable off-grid camper by the current owners.
Here is an authentic swamper ? bus with everything needed for cross-continental adventures.
I bought it ten years ago in excellent and original condition, low mileage, just two previous owners, original engine and above all with zero rust. I’ve spent eight years turning it into a capable and reliable overland rig with the focus on reliability and avoiding fancy stuff. I first refurbished the whole suspension with PU bushes, Fox monotube shocks, quality bearings and ball joints, and all parts powder coated. Then I swap the 1.6 JX engine for a 1.9 TDI AHU which is one off the most reliable and ubiquitous engines in Europe (not so much in the Américas)
Then came the 16” rims, winch, custom racks, recovery gear etc… We’ve travelled around Europe and Morocco several times. And in Jan 2019 we shipped it to Montevideo and toured Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Brazil, Perú, Ecuador and Colombia.
Right now stuck in Colombia waiting to hit the road again (May 2020).
We at Veedubs wish Lorena from Colombia and Pedro from Spain the very best with their travels and will enjoy keeping updated on their many adventures in their unusual bus.
