More Info: 1982 Subaru BRAT with EA81.
Rich running condition has been improved, car now runs very well.
Here’s what I’ve done to the car:
Rebuilt carburetor, new throttle cable, new spark plugs, brand new battery, newer front bumper, brand new Magnaflow header/catalytic converter assembly, newer driver-side turn signal housing, brand new carpet (front half only), serious rust repair in rear wheel well, almost-brand-new KYB rear struts, newer front driver-side fender, and replaced gaskets from a kit (head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, driver-side valve seals, water pump liquid gasket with new bolts).
Checked compression just a few days ago, everything is great with regards to that.
Other good things:
4-speed dual-range manual FWD/4WD transmission, clean interior with only a few issues, tires with a good amount of tread left, original jump seats in the bed, runs and drives, has title, original radio still works, all lights work, horn works, factory tool kit is in great condition, just over 85,000 original miles, and the original BRAT decal is still on the side of the b pillar. Would be a cool platform to swap in a more powerful engine.
Burns oil slightly (Most likely passenger-side valve seals), leaks oil slightly (Most likely rear main seal and maybe driver-side valve cover gasket), has rust (low-rust compared to most old-school Subarus), rear bumper is damaged, a few dents and dings, missing back half of carpet (I have the old one if you want to use it for a template), dashboard is cracked, and seats both are torn and could use reupholstering. Paint is mismatched on replaced fender and in spots where rust was ground away.
$2300, will only negotiate in person.
Prefer text or email. Will likely not answer calls but will listen to voicemail. Only interested in trades for manual turbo Subarus plus cash on my end.
