It's time to start a thread to follow the restoration of my 1973 Coupe. For starters, I purchased this car in the beginning of June 2009. Car is in semi-running condition as purchased. Here are some pics of it as it was brought home.
Actually not that bad a platform to do a restoration on. It does have some rust issues (nothing real serious though), body damage (mostly a damaged front bumper and it took a pretty decent hit in the back that the PO tried to "fix", which let to some of the rust issues. There is some damage to the right front of the hood and other minor dings), and the interior will need a complete redo. Besides being rough, it would seem the car is pretty complete. There are some "interesting" fixes the PO did to the car such as replacing the quarter windows with plexi held in with silicone! I plan on eventually completing a full ground up restoration on this rare old Subie. I have done this to a few other Old School Japanese cars and am currently trying to finish up a 72' Corolla wagon with a 6G72 Mitsu V6 drivetrain. The plan is to get the bugs worked out of the Subie and collect the necessary parts while I complete the wagon. Once the wagon is done (hoping to have it done within a year), I will tear the Subie down and rebuild her. For now, I will post up the things I am doing to make it a solid (if ugly) driving car. With a little time, alot of hard work (and $$$), I hope to return her to her former glory!
