More Details & Pictures
Up for sale is a 1978 Subaru Brat, runs and drives great. Aside from the winter months this thing has been my dally driver for the past 2 years, that being said I have a very short commute.
The car was originally in Florida so a friend and I found the cheapest flights we could and flew down to drive it back. As I’m sure you can guess that whole driving it back thing doesn’t quite work out.
At about 7am, roughly 30 miles outside of Richmond, the motor decided it not longer wanted to live.
One of the pistons had cracked causing it to suck oil out of the crank case, but what’s really important here is that the rather large highway we were on became engulfed in white smoke, essentially blinding the other drivers, just in time for rush hour.
Needless to say there was a lot of cursing and dirty looks but thankfully we had some really awesome friends nearby who towed us all the way back.
That all happened about 2 and a half, three years ago and not shortly after I had a local shop swap out the engine with a working one and install a new radiator and electronic ignition to eliminate the points.
I saved all the receipts and paperwork and still have the original engine as well as the jump seats and a few other extras including a cap, rear slider glass and transmission. If I find anything else for it you can have that too.
The body is in pretty great shape considering its age, it’s originally from Florida, the few spots of rust I took pictures of.
The car’s not perfect and needs a bit of work but it’s a fun and simple car to tinker around with. Call or text Jesse at (845)642-4499 any time before 8pm with any questions.
