I've found a non-running '87 Wagon for sale and I'm going to attempt to purchase, license and use it as my DD this winter. It's a 5-spd 4x4 and that's close to all I know about it right now. It's at a shop about an hour away and I hope to go put eyes on it this afternoon. I'll be able to scoop it up for >$500.
Now here's the rub, the ad states "No title" and since this is KY I may not be able to obtain one. The only sliver of hope I have is that it's at a mechanics' shop so a lien may be on it & if this is the case it's more likely a title is obtainable.
I'll post back after I talk with the shop owner. Thanks!
Edit: Ok, just got off the phone with the shop owner. The car has been sitting as his shop for several years with a blown news gasket and fuel system problems. The owner "didnt want to spend that kinda money" so he abandoned it. (This is Kentucky, old Subarus are rare and people are leery of anything that doesnt say Chevrolet or Ford. Ha) The last time he messed with it, he bypassed the tank and ran it out of a gas can and it ran fine (albeit smokey).
Any thoughts on whether this one is worth a try?
