well the XT6 is a rare beast, if the body and interior are in good shape the drive train isnt that important.repairs are easy and cheap. its a breeze to work on these older subarus. but for the most part these cars dont need a whole lot they are really over built. factory parts can got 200k easy
I recommend lifting it just for the Sh!ts and giggles.
the 300zx is a good car but if it was NA then it really isnt that special.
more specs on the XT6 is it auto or manual?

Front quarter panels are not an issue as they can be replaced by bolt off-bolt on... rear panels that usually part of the uni-body and a nightmare to swap (cut and weld), not sure on the XT6 though as it has an odd body. How are the rocker panels - usually one of the first places for rust to form? If it has the rough textured tape under the paint - poke it gently to see if there is strength or not as the metal under the tape can rust from the inside and the tape hides the rust sometimes.

I can't post pictures because the interwebs won't let me but why does my subaru have 6 cylinders and yet only 2 pipes or outlets into the exhaust manifold o.e
The ER27 in the XT6 is based on the 4 cyl. EA82 (basically the 4 cyl. with 2 more cylinders added) and the EA82 only has 1 exhaust port per head.

There are several things to know about XT6's... one that I am aware of is this.... it uses a special "cybrid power steering fluid" Not just normal power steering fluid or ATF (most Subarus use ATF)
Its a fairly rare car, not many left. Very low drag coefficient (even though its a big square wedge its somehow aerodynamic)

I'm just over in Republic and will take it off your hands if you find you don't like it Enjoy the car and to me the automatic is a plus.

one thing that might be a good idea is to put in an aftermarket heavy duty tranny cooler. especially if you plan on hot rodding it a bit.
