We are currently taking interest in creating a forum for this site for owners to discuss various topics surrounding the Subaru BRAT.  If you would like to see us implement a forum please send us a message on our Contact page.  In the meantime though here are a couple other resources you can use for reaching out to BRAT owners.



This is an owner site with great personal information about repairs, mods and other details.  It also contains outlinks to Yahoo groups and forums surrounding the Subaru BRAT.


ScoobyTruck.com is an old school bulletin board style forum that contains topics on both the Subaru Baja and BRAT.


For now also feel free to leave any discussions or comments below…


  1. I have a 1984 turbo and have read that 300 to 400 were made. Does anyone know if this is correct and how many might be left. Is their collectibility higher and what value on a non molested, rust free car with rear seats and belts?

  2. I am not sure how many were made. I have a bunch of parts from that era I picked up last summer including a complete EA-81T engine, harness and computer. Not sure what to do with them quite yet. I have never seen an ad for a running turbo brat in complete form, so I’m going to guess what you have is worth a pretty penny. I have seen N/A brats in really nice condition go for 9k before.

  3. Im looking for the hard to find brat parts like badges, dash vents, window gutter clips. Can anyone sell them to me or know where i can find some?

  4. I have an 86 Subaru brat and I can’t for the life of me figure out the vacuumed line diagram is there anyone here that has a picture of one under the hood showing the vacuumed lines?

    • Tyler, I have a picture of the vacuum lines from under the hood of my ’86 Subaru Brat with an EA81 Non-turbo engine. Can text or email it to you. Send me a message at logan813d (at) gmail (dot) com.

  5. Just bought my first 86 brat..runs and can make a cpl hr trip if need be..major problem finding parts!! Order parts and they are wrong or gone. Found exhaust gaskets by digging through autozones whole stock..not the ones listed in the system! Felpro 9217 if anyone is interested..anyway.. Im just calling out to fellow brat owners for advice on parts places and or swaps that can be done. Thx

  6. I just inherited a bunch of 1978 brat parts. There is everything you need to restore a brat. All original parts some are brand new and some used. Email me if you need anything I’m selling it all. Jamielkoontz@hotmail.com make sure to put brat in subject line
