Sprout the 77 wagon

Recommended Posts

This is my new project, among way to many other Subaru projects. This little car is awesome. The previous owner started to restore it, but it was never finished. It's missing nothing but the motor and trans. All its parts are packed up nicely in the back seat.

My plans are to restore it, including the awesome sprite green. I will also be using a 5 spd single range and a high comp large valve ea81. This shouldn't be too hard, as the car is pretty rust free,spots here and there but nothing major. I will post more photos soon. Thanks!

I chose to just grind down the bell housing to clear the steering linkage. I also had to shorten the stud coming from the motor.

I want to be able to enjoy the car while i save to build the motor, so im still running the stock carb. 

I just dropped it in straight out of the other wagon. It could use a reseal, but whats a few more miles before i do.

 

My plans for the motor:

spfi convertion

spfi pistons 

hp cam grind

mill .03 off each head

 

 

I built a buddys motor this way and we are pretty happy with it.

Im still working away doing things here and there. Havent started it yet.

 

Still needs:

Fuel lines plumbed

Connect harness to motor

Exhaust

 

I hope to have it running by this weekend. Its going to be stupidly loud and about 5 diffrent colors,but i cant wait to drive it! I will tear it back down this winter.
