Rarest Old-School Subaru Part or Option?

Recommended Posts

Could I Ask, What is the Rarest Old-School Subaru Part or Option you've Seen?

 

I Just Found on-line a Nice Hardtop Coupe for Sale in Boston, with Low Mileage and it had some sort of Protective Cover around the Distribuitor, that I've never seen Before.

 

See, its an EA81:

Heres a few Ive heard of or know of.

 

1400 rear disk brakes.

 

Omega electronic disty. On my old car. Was a 1989 or 91? and EA71. I could not seem to find the correct cap for it. Tryed every where.

In the end had to convert it to points since it was so oddball.

 

Hydraulic suspension. Cant exactly remember if it was on leone or omega shape wagon. I got to talk to the guy that had it.

Loyale - that's just a shield found in most cold weather Subarus from '79 - '84 + here in the States.

 

I actually have NEW from the 70's "Cold Weather Kit" which has that shield in it among other items so carbs/intake perform better when the tempature goes to freezing.

 

Probably very rare down your way. Was that a car from a cold weather region? Also used to keep water off the disty all around.

 

Rares options ? hmmm ..... wood steering wheel from the early 70's?

Jack for a 83-84 Turbo Coupe/Wagon/Brat.

They are not the same as the others.

 

Oh, and I have that disty shield on my Hatch.

I have three or four of those distributor splash guards in my shed - both for EA81 and EA82 applications. I usually toss them off when I install a Weber. A rubber glove and vaseline works well to seal the distributor. That's my version anyway.

Back when i was just a wee mechanic I saw a few of those, but I think they got trashed after time like most covers.

HA ha ha.... thats sweet.. a woodgrain EA82 dash.

 

Speaking of which...

 

I saw a Woodgrain (exterior) EA82 wagon once in a junkyard. Just woodgrain shelf paper possibly but it WAS done really well, so may have been an option from an individual dealer or something....

I had an 83 parts Brat that had one of those covers on it. Everyone always seem to lose them or like mentioned, they broke.

That's factory!? My 82 wagon has one of those, I thought it was just something somebody stuck on there!

No way, I have a factory installed sunroof! What do I win?

 

*Fixed* I meant EA81. Tons of EA82s came with the line-installed sunroof. On the EA81, it seems like the line-installed sunroofs are much harder to find versus dealer-installed units.
