This car is advertised as an Impreza sport wagon. Not sure if it's an Outback.
Has front scoop. Coloring on lower sides same as bumpers and says sport on rear door panel. Gray lower and green upper, like most OB's I've seen. 127k, body looks good (from pics). Seller says mechanic told him tranny would go in 10 to 20k. 5mt. 1.9l engine. Asking 2,950. Can anyone say if this is actually an OB. Comments on 1.9L engine, I've never heard of one. Says he hears slight sounds coming from engine. I'm suspecting maybe lifters, or who knows, but haven't heard it yet. Supposedly runs well. Also price relative to tranny issues. Currently have a 90 Legacy wagon. How do you think performance would compare. Comments appreciated. Thanks

Yes, sounds like an Impreza Outback Sport from the hood scoop, etc.

There's no 1.9l... should be a 2.2l though, which is a good thing... lots of info about that model here:
