More Info: Make me a reasonable offer, worst I can say is no. I may trade it for the right thing too. Just can’t afford anymore projects. I can deliver locally for the right price also.

Managed to stumble across this rare find about 2 months ago. I bought it from an old Subaru mechanic that got it and just didn’t have a chance to fix it and had to relocate without it.

If you aren’t familiar with the old Subarus, they were front wheel drive with “REAL” 4wd, all tires turn when locked in, not limited slip crap of today.

It definitely needs some work but I got it because they are so hard to come by. Fenders and hood probably need to be replaced, but I have a number for a guy that had the front end for like $150. Everything else is just surface rust. The interior is in amazing condition other than the cracks from sitting in the sun (dash and driver seat) Doors and tailgate work fine.

Clutch and transmission feel right as far as pushing it in and going through gears with the stick. Don’t know about the status of motor, I haven’t tried to start it or anything. But it’s in there and pretty clean for as old as it is and how long it’s sat. The front brakes are rusted to calipers I think, the wheels won’t spin unfortunately.

I don’t wanna get rid of it by any means, but I don’t have a place to work on it and now I need money or something drivable, not something to put money into =/

Also have a 79 Westfalia posted

Thanks for looking =)
