Wow, that is a rare find... hope you get it, I know you've been looking for an older Sube for a while to fix up!

i guess the guy was wrong, it is a 78 as i originally thought.here are the pics he sent.if you are in the L.A. area, you can`t beat this, i REALLY wish i was closer, but shipping is just to much for me right now.if you would like the guys contact info, pm or email me.damn the west coast:lol:

nice alloys too:brow: whoever gets it must promise to post better pics so i can see what i missed.

Its fubared up! :( That sucks. Nice color though. I wonder what the interior is like. (Im not even remotely near LA)

Man, every AWD wagon I see with the rear bumper like that is bent... Havent seen a straight one yet.

Barring the smashed door, this looks, at least at a glance, to be in about the same condition as Freebiemobile. Did he say if it runs/ran?

If so, this thing could be a very sweet project...

I sent the guy a e-mail with a few questions. Hopefully if I could pull it off it would be like a 3 1/2 hour drive to go get it. I drove that far for my 78 brat.

The distance you have to drive is irrelavent when it's a SUBARU!

When I did my EJ conversion, I had to drive 1000 miles total (two trips) to pick up parts for it, and I didn't think twice about it:drunk: .

Well I talked to the guy. He said it only runs for a few seconds and dies. Said it is a 4wd 4spd car. It only has body damge to the door, obviously and the hood. He still thinks it is a 73 though. Probably cost me like $200 in gas just to go get it with my truck. Still, that is not all that bad. I would have the only 78 Subie wagon around. That is for sure. What do you guys think? My only real problem would be finding a door for it. There are no old subies like that in my local junkyards.

C'mon, don't let a little thing like that stop you. There's got to be one somewhere... I mean, if that '75 in Utah can't be saved from the yard, maybe someone could at least pull its door...

Vin indicates 78 DL 4WD wagon.

A67L means Gen1 4WD. Subaru didn't introduce 4WD till 75, so no possibility of an A67L VIN prior to that.

Wow! That sure does suck! I was looking forward to owning a gen 1 wagon too. Would have been nice to park next to my 78 Brat. Oh well, I guess I will just have to keep looking.

Heck this has given me the itch for a gen 1 wagon now! Anybody have one on the west coast. I am thinking California would be nice. I can pretty much drive to pick it up in the state. Any condition would work for me. Help me out guys!

Hey BigSerg, would you consider selling the wagon?just asking for subieguy:)


subieguy, its a shame this wasn`t about a month ago (if you were looking for a gen 1)before i found my brat.i had about 10 gen 1 wagons scoped out on the west side, mostly around $4-600.i`ll keep a look out for ya, but if i find one on the east side, i will have to buy it.
