Hello, i need your help, i need to buy someones parts car (does not matter the condition) as long as it has the door vin tag and dash vin and a title (salvage or clean) and being somewhere between 1977-1979 station wagon. color does not matter. you can either keep the vehicle that has no title now for more parts or ill take it depending on distance. its up to you.
I bought this 1979 GL for $60, yes 60! just one catch, it has no title, and its been abandoned at a small shops property since 2002, could not contact original owner and his home is now a "tourists motel" since its in downtown Austin,Tx... i just paid the shops "fine" of being parked there. in Texas theres not much you can do with an abandoned vehicle so there all mostly sold as parts cars, but i want to register it and drive it like it was suppose to. please let me know if anyone can help, theres no first gen Subarus for sale in Texas, or any nearby State. PM me or message me here and ill PM you. thanks for the help, i appreciate it.
[Update: it runs! it has a clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump is no good]
[2nd Update: Fuel pick up tube in the tank was clogged because the original owner lost the fuel cap decades ago which caused the fuel pump to go out when something clogged, which put too much stress on the fuel pump power wire which caused it to melt (weird how the fuse is still good, perhaps they changed it and still couldn't figure it out) original fuel pump only works when its warmed up so i replaced it and now it works everytime]

not sure if its 94k or 194k, pretty sure its only 94k. also never knew that any first gen leones came with tachometers stock.. guess it was something they did at the end of 1979.
4WD, 4speed, some kind of aftermarket radio.
its all there.. nice and dusty. (factory A/C unknown if its any good, although i feel compression when i turn it) [Update: engine runs] [2nd Update: A/C compressor is good]
door panels are in good condition except for the interior door handles.
Flawless roof (surprising) besides it being sun faded.
love white walls.
Looks like someone was already trying to sell it, or they just bought it and left it at the shop because of lack of parts? good thing theres the internet now. (i have tried to call the number and its out of service) are those the original floor mats??
no old subaru is complete without the cracked dash (note inspection and registration from 2002) poor Subaru.
Drivers side rust. im sure this is nothing for some compared to up north.
Passenger rust (alittle worse)
Random spot for rust to begin forming.
nice little ding, cracked the plastic and dented the chrome.
