Yes, I bought ANOTHER Brat, but I may have an idea or two for this one and couldn't pass it up. Its an 84 Automatic. It's a GL so it has the T-Tops. Non turbo though.:banghead: :) I bought it from a lady who moved to washington and needed to get rid of it. I was told that her ex-husband was a mechanic for Subaru and was one of just 97 people in the country with his qualifications to work on subaru's. I got it for 700$ and the reason why I bought it was because it had a brand new engine, there are NO cracks in the dash, and the seats are marvelous. The only down side is that is has a small patch of bondo on the passenger side behind the wheel well. Now for the pics:

nice BRAT

the motor looks spotless, but that bondo needs some help.the spare tire needs to go, but other than that, it looks like it`d clean up good.does it have a/c?
i see it has the toneau cover snaps, did she include the cover?if not, there is one on ebay right now for $15.
any lifting plans?:brow:
good luck with it

Well...... My lifted soob right now is having major issues with rust and the such, so maybe I'll swap everything over when it goes downhill. Otherwise, I may swap over the engine into my lifted and then part it out, or maybe just make it sweet lookin. I don't believe it came with the tanneau cover, but I haven't really had the chance to look closely to what's inside. I am definitely getting rid of the spare, maybe some nicer rims might spice it up. It may become my daily driver for right now as well.

That engine looks really clean! Would do nicely in the lifted.

I think i know someone who has a lift kit that could go on there ;)
