A good friend just bought a 1971 subaru R-2.
I have posted it on the wanted thread , but if someone have any part for that car that will be great.
as you can see it needs full restoration.

Now now this is a subaru board, not a jeep board....


Put the subaru in the pack of the Jeep and then you would have a jeep-a-roo :)

Nobody cares what kind of jeep it is.

Where is this R2 located? Good luck finding parts, thats the only one ive ever seen in a real life picture (as opposed to being in a museum).

The Subaru R-2 is a refined Subaru 360. Not all the parts are the same, but somewhat simular. A Subaru R-2 is very rare, as in, you have the only one in the USA. I've never seen a LHD R-2 before.


The only place to find Subaru 360 parts is through the Subaru 360 drivers club. You will have to join the club..... as in pay yearly dues. The upside is I bet some Subaru 360 parts will cross

Good Luck!

One of our Subaru 360 drivers club members, the almighty " Sigmaz ", is creating a special hybrid motor. His build is documented on the 360 club forums. He's using the Subaru R2 intake reeds, lower engine case, and cylinders mounted to a Subaru 360 bottom end.

He is trying to surpass my hot rod Subaru 360





He'll never get there ! :headbang:
