More Details & Pictures

I’ve been on the fence about selling my brat but now I need to make room in the stable for another subaru. This is a 1st generation brat manufactured in may 1978. I am the 3rd owner.

The car started its life in the midwest and made it’s way out to portland with the first owner. Was owned briefly by one other here in town and I’ve had it for the last 4 years.

It’s mostly original and comes with all of its original trim. Was painted rally blue before I owned it. Wheels are stock but tires are slightly larger so the spare no longer fits in the engine bay. Seats have been replaced and driver’s side has electric adjustments.

Also comes with: a full set of snow tires/wheels, spare panels for the truck bed, original carb, engine mounts, water pump, windshield wiper motor, jensen stereo (speakers need rewired), and a few other small odds and ends . At some point in its past it was subaru performance tuned (or someone liked the sticker) but it does have a webber carb and definitely makes more than the base 65 hp promised subaru.

Transmission was rebuilt in 2014. New clutch in 2012. Rear shocks in 2013. Front struts in 2014. Brakes all around in 2014. The cat had been cut out so replaced that in 2014. Need’s tags but passed deq with nearly new car #’s.

Very minor body damage above the left driver’s side blinker from when I worked in downtown portland…Love tap from someone who can’t parallel park. I drive it about 100 miles a week. Runs great.
