here's somthing I dont remember seeing a lot of talk about on the board when I was last active. Subaru convertibles. I do remember seeing two on ebay and there being some chatter about both of them on the list.
Does anybody know where there is one right now? Does anyone have pictures of any other than the chopped Xt6 in the pictures section?
I remember there being one that looked like it had started life as an early 80's hatchback. The other looked like it had been an early 80's 2 door coupe. I thought the coupe derivative looked a little better. That particular car was in connecticut if i am not mistaken. I remember that the top had been redone poorly, and the car was very cheap. It was 2 wd. Why I did not buy it I don't know. It would be cool to get a hold of one of these and hook it up with a turbo, some nice wheels and such. It would certainly be unique.

That blue one looks kind of high in the back, was it 4wd?
Turboone: not to be a pain, but wouldnt your convertible pics be better placed in the "convertibles" section? I know i have been looking for a while. I'm still not sure how I missed yours though.
Does anybody know if richie wants to sell? Where is he located again?

Two problems. One is doesn't run under load. We replace the fuel pump and fuel filters. Most likely in the POS carter carb. Have another one but haven't got it on.
It also overheats after about 15 minutes. Put in a newer radiator have had a chance to test it out.
It is a long term project for me and my father.
Thanks to Ken for helping us get it.

But, in case you havent seen one, that is exactly what the other style of convertible (not the one richie has) looks like. I saw one on ebay a couple of years ago. It was discussed on the board. I'm surprised that no one grabbed the picture.

I have seen a newer (86 or 87) four door sedan converted via sawzall in Jacksonville beach, FL. It looked really really bad.
