Anyway, it is:
1982 Subaru GL Wagon, Tan, 3 headlight ("Third Eye") special order. The EA-81 engine and drive train have been replaced with a SPFI EA-82 (non-turbo) and a 5-speed dual-range manual tranny from a 1988 GL Wagon. ECU unit is sitting on the floor, with the wiring going through the firewall to the engine. Car runs. Body is in good condition, no rust, a few dings and old paint, but overall pretty good. According to the title, car has 173K - but I don't know if the EA-82 transplanted into the car has more or less miles. Engine appears (at least from my cursory examination) to be in good condition, oil is light brown, not black.
What is this car worth, roughly? How rare is the 3-headlight version, and how much of a premium do they command?
Finally, how many of the parts interchange between the 1982 body style GL's and the 1985-1989 GL's I'm familiar with (axles, hubs, etc.)
Any input is greatly appreciated, the yard owner says he'll hold on to the car for me until Monday, by which time I need to make a decision. He's floated me an offer, which I won't disclose, I don't want it to "color" the feedback I get from you all.
