*Fixed* I meant EA81. Tons of EA82s came with the line-installed sunroof. On the EA81, it seems like the line-installed sunroofs are much harder to find versus dealer-installed units.


Oh thats better, that makes lots more sense! Yet somehow I feel cheated....

My car came with the "break after every fix" option. It never fails either. :(

XT6 3.9 factory LSD. Never seen one but the FSM talks about them and I've also heard the parts books show a listing for them?



I used to have a set of brand new gen 3 EA82T heads in the original packaging.

Try and beat this!

Subaru 360 with auto drive!
Subaru 360 with the "sports package"

looking at the video i think the leather gloves may have been a factory option too. We all know that when you drive with leather gloves the car handles better!

Well... Back in the 1980's era, the "Shift-Up" Light in the Dashboard was a very Rare Feature for a Car then, but Seems like even Older Subarus got an Audible Beep alarm instead that Light, Back on the 1970's era; See this Post:

...There are one or two threads kicking around for the GSR. ... Just found out the other day. It has an audible *beep* from under the dash when you exceed around 115km/h. It appears to have a bit more gadgetry than the normal ones too I think.

I'd have to say the factory dual carb setup is a rare thing to have. As far as I know, there are only 2 in the U.S. One up in pacific northwest (can't remember who had it and the one I had which I sold to McBrat when I (regretfully) got rid of my BRATs.

(P.S. I still have stuff if anyone's lookin. RX ground effects, BRAT bed chrome, misc dash parts, maybe some disc brake conversion stuff) If interested, just call me because I rarely get on here. Boz 609 941 9143
