Rebuild or salvage my Brat?
Posted 04 February 2005 - 03:09 PM
Should I put another $1800 into it, or should part out and salvage? Would the thing sell for $3600 with new engine and paint? Is this thing really worth rebuilding? Could I make enough off it to part out?
Input would be greatly appreciated.

To me, it would all depend on if it has any rust. How do the subframe rails look? How about the rear wheel wells? I am a big fan of older subaru preservation, and I hate to see anymore bite the dust! Kurt
Ain't much rust.

Unless it was real sweet I doubt you could sell it for Big $$$.
Old Subies are kind of a niche market.
My two cents!

If you decide to sell it as-is, let me know. My wife is from OK and we could go down under the guise of visiting family and bring back a newer Brat. Tim
Talk money. Got $1800 into it. Could have it professionally painted for you. It has bed liner below the mid trim-line and in the bed.

I don't think anyone will come close to 1800 for a ratle canned non runner
Can you get some pics of it??? Also a little more detail, what year?? Is it a GL or DL??? seats, fun tops etc. I can tell you I won't even come close to $1800 for a non runner thats been rattle canned. Lets start with a couple of picture and go from there. Thanks, Tim

I say, if you like the car and want to keep it. Find another EA81 from a Junkyard, or find a used one. You can get imported EA81's for around $400-$600 if you shop around. And as far as paying $300 to have it installed... PSSSH Do it yourself. Will take 2 guys, or 1 guy and a hoist. And 3 hours.
If you dont like the car, part it or sell it. Needless to say, you'd be lucky to get your $1800 back that you paid for the car initially, even after an engine swap.
