Date of Manufacture:


Rare 1990 Subaru Brumby Sports. This has the Targa Roof (T-Top).

Car is as per original, with the exception of the sunraysia wheels.

Originally bought as one of two project cars. It was pretty good rust wise (none), except for the rear tray/cab seam weld. This has been repaired and will not reoccur (see photos). The interior is fair. The drivers seat is actually a recaro bucket. The dash top is cracked.

There is a CD player and some boxed speakers in there as well.

The tray is in pretty good nic.  It was made roadworthy and put to daily driver use in 2009.  It went into the shed later that year when I finished the EJ25 conversion on the other brumby.  

Got family now and don't have time...this needs to go.  Pulled it out of the shed last week, put a spare battery in it and it fired straight away, runs smooth.

It does have a gear selection problem (reverse), which is a known problem of the EA81.  I had a look, and the bushes are shot. That's why the car is on ramps in the picture.

It has removable sports bars front and rear.

I imagine to make it roadworthy if that's your intent it looks like possibly 2 tyres, fix the gear selection, change an indicator bulb, give it a service.  Brakes are good.

Or do what I planned to do.....strip it back, do the straight body justice with some paint (I was always thinking satin orange for this one), and transplant an  EJ motor into it.

The Fine Print. Im not nasty but.....

It is not registered. It is not roadworthy.  It has no battery, but I will temporarily fit one to start the car as a demonstration that car runs smoothly.

Will provide a statement of clear title.

Inspections welcome - You are welcome to come and look at it.

Sale is "as is, where is". I will not ship it, nor take it to a depot. Come and get it. Read my lips - I will not get quotes, nor run around for you.

Collect by 11 Feb 2014. Payment is cash or bank cheque. If you pay for it, and haven't collected it by 11 Feb, or made an alternative arrangement with me, it goes on the street.

Dont hang around hoping to haggle. Im moving house. $500 is what the crusher will pay.

I might consider swap for a motorcycle, dirt or on road.
