Thought I'd show off my new brat and get some help spitballing for ideas when I start to build it up!

It's an 84 originally from Texas. A bit of rust but really nothing compared to what I fixed on my 88 hatchback (build thread).

It was a surprise present from my incredibly awesome girlfriend.

Kinda cool that's it's the same color as my hatch. They will be a matched pair.

Anyway, I'm thinking EJ 22/25 Frankenmotor with porting and torque cams, 5spd D/R (I have one EA-EJ adapter plate left!), 6 lugs with BFG All-terrains, 3 or 4 inch lift, rear discs... I also have a power steering rack and cross-member but I don't know if I want it for my hatch or the brat... what else... make the jump seats removable, nice thick bed-liner, new paint, maybe some custom plate bumpers with hidden winches... kinda dreaming here but it's fun to do!

Oh, wow. I remember seeing that on Craigslist not too long ago. That was down by me.


Awesome girlfriend.


Have fun with it. Make a twin for the hatch  :P
