Worldwide? (I'm sure rust ate them up in Europe too, but what about Oz? Are there still a bunch of 'em running around The Outback?)
I'm guessing 2000-3000 left. (On the road, Worldwide.) Figuring their attrition rate more due to their propensity for cancer than to mechanical defect.
Of those still Alive, how many are in "original" condition? Ie: no parts missing, no rust, dents, blemishes, rips/tears, cracks or leaks? (restored or survivors)

Gen 1 brats were sold here alot and you can see plenty of them on the roads(mostly 2wd,and few of the 4wd).
About the gen 1 brats ,well i beleive somthing like 10-20 alive but not on the road and less than 10 driving, i know of one 78 and two 79 and they are in good shape and less,the others are 80-81.
I own a 81 brat dual range and he is driving and soon to get new paint job,but when we meet (the israeli subaru club )i"m the only one with gen 1 brat.
Its sed since they sold here in good numbers but because of a lot of thefths and wrong use with them mostly all of them just gone ,they are very rare this days here in israel

There were four Gen 1 Brats imported to austria in the early 80s, but all 4 are gone (rust, rust, rust).
The Subaru Import to Europe started in 1979.

Right now a good right fender, the lower front valance and a good left tail light. There is more but that would be a good start. Maybe a good rear bumper too.
ok I will keep an eye out for a fender, valance, and a rear bumper but the tail light will be tough cause those are things that get old and brittle over time and people were not careful about that stuff
and Elad welcome to our world that the gen 1's were beaten to death by people that offroaded them or worse (alot of the 4wd's including brats that I have seen have crushed subframes underneath for that reason)

I've seen three on the streets of Tallahassee, two in Panama City, and two more down here outside of Ocala. All <80. Of those, only one Brat. Rest were wagons. *shrug*

What about Oz? When did the blokes Down Under start getting 'em? I know the Aussies like their Soobs. That Killer Green Gen-1 was in Oz.......
