Please let me know if I missed anything, I don't think I got all of the colors, as I think there is a silver, but couldn't find an official list.
Add things for the 1st gen in comments and I'll edit this to reflect any other or more accurate information.

NZ brats were assembled in Waitara, new Zealand until the plant closed in 87.

They were painted with single stage Dulon acrylic lacquer. I think there were only two colors of gen1 here, carmine red and tan (I don't know the official name for that colour).

They were called MPV back then, but now everyone calls them brumbies.

In 1981 they got ea81 and 4sp dual range transmission

As far as I Know, the LADM (Latin American Domestic Market) Got Brats sold brand new on the Subaru Dealers, up until year 1994, and I've read that the same happened in Australia, by what I've read at AUSubaru forums.

In my own humble opinion, the info above, must be a SOA / USDM limited info,

 

Kind Regards.
