More Details & Pictures

I have for sale a 1978 subaru brat with lots of extra parts. This is a rare and special car as 1978 was the first year subaru sold brats in america. I’ve owned this car for 4 years and have made considerable repairs and upgrades, among them:

New inner & outer tie rods
New steering setup
New carburetor (a rare australian weber with a very cool/unique air filter!)
Jackman wheels (look these up if you’ve never heard,they’re baja wheels and finding them in brat size is very difficult!)
New coil
New starter
Rebuilt distributor
New alternator
Dash wiring
Ignition wiring
Jumper seats in the back

Before I bought the car, the heads & transmission were rebuilt, and I have put about 2,000 miles on it since then. It also had an upgraded muffler system,which sounds awesome.

Extra parts I have include:

Wiring harness kit (brand new)
Front panels
Driver’s door
Steering wheel,column,levers
Brake master cylinder
Lots of little pieces and odds & ends(I do have the side vents they just aren’t on)

Extra body parts have very little damage, would look great sanded & painted.

This car runs great, drives great, and is very fun.
4wd on the fly is a blast
Sounds like a beast!
Minimal rust
Clean title.
Registered & tagged for another year.

I hate to sell it but I’m in a pinch and I have access to another vehicle if I need. I want her to go to someone who loves and appreciates her, this is likely the best mechanically functioning first year brat in the state and their numbers are dwindling.

This is not just a random brat. Lots of care & time had gone into this thing and it shows (well… She is a little dirty, but functionally maintained very well). This is no dumpster brat. If you go through with painting & putting that door, panels & tailgate on it’ll be a stunner as well as reliable.

Please just text me as I work a lot. Please only text if serious. My name is connor. Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking.
