More Info: You are looking at a beautiful piece of American history. This… Is a Subaru Brat. In the 70’s there was a tariff imposed on the importation of trucks of any shape or size to the U.S. This was in retaliation to the European chicken tax imposed on us. The 70’s was a booming era for trucks and Subaru wanted to take full advantage. Therefore, they created a small truck-like vehicle to sell in America. They found a loophole in the tax system, and put two jump seat in the bed of their new truck. This meant that it would be classified not as a truck but as a “passenger vehicle” which would forfeit it from the tariff. This vehicle is very cool and rare. It has just under 150,000 miles. It also has the optional camper top factory from Subaru. This gem is in need of interior restoration: the floor boards need to be patched from rust I’ve already cut most of the rust out of them which was not much at all, the seats need to be re apolstered and.the dash is cracked.. the motor is in great shape I just rebuilt the carb changed the oil and put a k&n oil filter on it. I also changed the plugs and wires. Im gonna finish up some wiring and finish tuning the carb in the next couple days.(update it is idling well on cold starts but once it’s warm it idling rough) I just put brand new tires on it with 0 miles on them!! The windshield is cracked along the top and there’s a dent in the tailgate. To get this guy driving down the road you’d need to bleed the brakes and finish up some engine tuning. TRAILER MAY BE REQUIRED FOR PICKUP. This brat is a one of a kind and deserving of a great owner I still have the original title and all documents with work and college I haven’t sent it in to get it in my name so you’d be the second owner! Price is 2000 I’ve got way more than that in it… But it’s priced to sell I need the money for college willing to talk about the price. 479268858nine text me anytime I have a busy work schedule so if you call just leave a message. Just lowered the price! Thanks for looking!!
