The last year of the BRAT was indeed 89. The T tops were available straight through the end of production. So speaketh the Subaru parts book :D

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't those Washington plates on that Brat? He says in the description that it's a California car.
And what the hell is a 5 spoke wheel?:D

Those are indeed Oregon plates... odd that a California car would be licensed in Oregon... eh? I don't recall '85 being the "last year" for any option, part, or otherwise on a Brat.

Nice enough looking though. (note the use of the word looking)

Mick is correct. last year for the US was 1987 for Brats. Brats remained in production until 1994 but only over seas in New Zeland and Australia etc.

the guy is obviously miss informed, but oh well.

Yeah, We saw this a while back when he first listed. I made a post in off topic. Me and I believe it was GeneralDisorder both told him not only was he wrong, but the "Knowledgable Ebayer" was also wrong. Guy sounds like a dork. Car is in California. Has dents, But still worth 800 or whatever it was when I last looked. Boz

Yeah - we told him. He emailed me and thanked me - said he didn't know that much about them, and was going from what his son told him. He sounded quite honest really.

last year for Brats was:

US: 87
Aus: 92
NZ, and Isreal: 94

That's the countries I know about anyway. I'm sure there are plenty more with other numbers. It does seem that the final year of production anywhere (at least so far as I know) was 94.
