I'm wondering on wether or not I should buy a 1992 Subaru GL wagon. The car is $800 and in pretty good shape for the age. I'm wondering how hard and exspensive will it be to convert it from fwd to 4wd/AWD and if it's worth doing or not

I see the ad is closed, so not sure if you bought it or not.

The only difference between the FWD shell & the 4wd shell is the centre bearing brackets are missing from the tranny tunnel in the FWD models. Cut them out of a wreck & weld them in.


Everything else is bolt in changeable.
