... left a note on the windshield if they ever wanted to sell it 90K MILES on it, maybe I can get in the 'hey that ea82T really is a POS' club or the 'mine blew up too, told you so' mailing list :lol:

That's not an RX so it's most likely a tranny-swapped Turbo GL. Probably was a push-button car originally.

Roger that, it's not an RX or an RS. I realized it was a GL. The d/r is interesting. Also seeing the rear cargo light and slightly different hvac buttons was odd. But 90K? body was a whole lot less rock chipped and hammered up than mine, could believe it was an original 90K miles and not an instrument swap

There would be a certain amusement in having two of the same body style, I could have one lifted and one for the pavement. Think of the interchangeability of the spares :slobber:

too bad I couldn't store my old spfi and s/r, they got crushed when the wagon met it's maker

now that you mention the HVAC differences, I see it too. which means it's an '85-'86. which means it could be PT4WD D/R. I know the '85-'86 RXs had a 3.7 PT4WD 1.2:1 D/R.

Maybe '86, but I don't think the 3 door body was available in '85. I thought they came out in '87 but maybe I'm a year off.

not just amusement but functionality too, you're going to need a spare with an EA82T.

I've thought of getting ones of those for a rally runner. Basically swap a WRX under that body, if I ever hit the lottery get a late model 6speed with DCCD, AWIC with about 16-18psi boost, full cage, etc..........

Its definitely an 86.... Interesting, Hopefully they will sell it to you cheap, would be a good rig to play around with after you ditch the turbo EA82...

can I blow it up first? never actually hand-grenaded an engine... I wanna see big chunks of oily metal flying willy nilly :eek:

seriously, that would make a good car to 'RX', even though it has that lip on the hatch
then I could have my RS for the dirt/snow and trails...

Its just a unbadged RX.
There were some from the factory that never got labeled as a RX but had most of the RX stuff, sans body kit.
If you look at the Vin # it will tell you.
They are pretty rare, maybe even more than mine.

it doesn't have a center dif , 3.7 lsd, ground effects, or rear spoiler, by that logic my Loyale RS is an 'unbadged RX'

it's a turbo GL, maybe unusual, but nothing exotic

I thought that pic of the interior showed a locking diff switch, but its just a decal for 4wd.

But what I said still holds true. Maybe not with this one, but theres some out there.
If you get the Vin # we would know for sure.

I could attempt it, early enough in the morning they may be less likely to shoot at me if I park my similar looking car in plain sight - the note was gone off the windshield this morning
