Shouldnt it have the 1600 logo on the hood, or was that just wagons from over seas?

Exactly, it is a right-hand drive Brat.
UK Brat = MV
Australia Brat = Brumby

The base wagons, sedans, etc. were also called Leones in Australia and Japan; vs the trim levels. (GL or DL)

In the UK the sedans and wagons are trims too, but go by ME, MV, etc.


Nice Subie 81MV :D

This is pretty interesting. I've always wondered if there was a Badge on them stating the model/trim level. We have GL/DL/Brat, Would Aus/UK actually have a badge that says Brumby/MV? That would be cool.

I like how they put the 4WD logo where the BRAT logo should be.
