Ummm holy flippin' wow! Sweeeeeet find that's cool. If it were mine I'd swap it to 4wd or awd (maybe), and just drive it till a problem presents itself. Fix it and keep on truckin!

I'm sure the ea82t h8rs will pipe up and the gurus will too. half will say swap it, the other half will say replace ALLLLLLL the hoses and run it.

Welcome and enjoy!

Total museum piece. First ever ea82 for the year, in tis best trim. My opinions say to restore it as there are few original examples like this, and 1985 is the one year exception with the door mounted mirrors, first issue!

:confused: Its a 86, with the mirrors mounted on the window frame.

A beautiful example of mid 80's Subaru.
Dont see to many of these that arent 4wd, but it should move a little quicker being fwd (and better gas mileage).

My bad. i thought i was seeing door mounted mirrors. My buddy has an 85 wgon, and i was trippen on that. I have an 86. I am a fan of the pre 88 and the 87.5 models.

Nice thing about this particualr year, is there are defroster vents on the b pillar for the side windows. Clever! they did away with these in 87, but they are retrofitable.

Still, this is a sweet ride that deserves some preservation. Detail under the hood and park it at cherry hill !

Wow :slobber:
You have two very beautiful cars. I love that lego turbo. And I don't think I have ever seen a GL that has been that clean if it were me I would probably leave it just they way it is, it's hard to find such an original example. Great find.

Wow very nice. Ya know I have half a mind to ask you what that little verticle button strip is next to the radio and cassette player? I've seen so many gl's with block off plates and aways wondered what went there.

HOLY COW, Batman - what a beauty! and the digidash all works!!

That has got to be the cleanest example of an EA82T ever! She's beautiful! :slobber:

i'm just going to restore it all up getting running like a beast again and its going to sit in my buddy's subaru dealer ship as a show peace


oh, please - dont let her sit ALL the time - she needs to be taken out and driven occasionally! Take her to local car shows and stuff like that. :)
