We have a 08 Forester as a family car, and I've been looking for a daily driver/ TSD Rally car to turn a wrench on..
I've looked at many different options, and have been watching CL and Kijiji for the right one to come along.
Today this showed up;
So I'm here looking around..

Assuming no maintenance history, it may be on its original timing belts. Easy enough to repair of it breaks, though, non-interference.
Parts are interchangeable between 1985 and 1995 DL/GL/GL-10/XY/RX/loyale coupe, sedan, wagon
rear disc brakes form a turbo swap in
a dual range trans is a direct bolt in using the same axle, clutch, mount, and driveshaft
you can swap in missing accessories such as rear speakers, map lights, power windows from any gl or loyale equipped with such
The car is novel and practical, but not the best in performance(raw power and torque, although it is high revving and handles tightly), but is a good car if you appreciate its versatility. The car will be reliable so long as you understand subaru specific maintenance practices. This car is easy to work on compared to most other makes, but is much different than other makes.

So, is this car really a M/T? hmm.

. . . the picture shows a 3AT shifter . . .
Good eye, TheLoyale! I think you're right.

The 4eat is the same design up to 2004 automatic subarus, so in theory, you can swap in one from a legacy and use an ej22 if you were into it for a project.
otherwise, you can use a legacy trans and swap over your existing differential to match the bellhousing.
If the car has a good service history, it will not be a bad choice for 600 bucks.
if you are really into it for a project, you can swap in a manual trans using the same running gear, you just need the mount, driveshaft, and clutch/flywheel assembly, and its related bolts.
