Southern New England, where rust is plentyful and vintage jap cars are not. I'll post more pics after the upgrades. P.S. I plan on driving this in the winter. Rust and salt doesn't scare me.

1979 Brat with an ea81 and a fwd-only :( 5 speed. :)

 

Picked it up for 800 bucks last month and drove it home. It has NO rust :clap: (ok a little surface rust here and there hehe)

He also gave me a truck-bed load of spare parts for it including 2 of the 'offroad tires'. I got another 2 of them at the junkyard so as soon as I get all 4 painted the same color we'll be good to go! >:D

 

Big plans for the little truck! *ahem* car!

The 4wd is gone because the previous owner did mostly highway driving. The fwd 5 speeds have a higher top speed and is much better on gas. I'm flip flopping between going back to 4wd or going full ej swap with a modern awd system

Original owner. Bought it in June of 1978 in Santa Barbara California. My first new car. I have not driven it in a couple years now due to a lack of free time to maintain it and I refuse to drive it on Michigan's salt encrusted roads in the winter. This picture was taken a couple years ago here in Clinton Township Michigan.

78 brat, stock 1.6 and a 4 speed, just put fresh paint and 4 inch lift on it. It has a removable soft top also. I have a 1.8 and a d/r 4 speed that will go in this spring. I sanded some cabinet doors for a friend to get the car. the lift is not on yet in these pics

'78 BRAT, bought for $300 late 2009 as a basket case (sat under a tree for 15 years!). Some typical rust, but not out of hand. As of now it has a 4 inch lift, rebuilt fat case EA71, lsd rear diff, rebuilt suspension and steering, new brakes (rear discs too), and about half the sheetmetal work done, including floorboards, battery tray area, and some other typical areas. It will soon get 18 guage rocker panels and rear valence. Then it goes back together with a reconditioned dashboard and a custom bench seat so I can lug both my boys around (at least while they are small) and it will get a flat white epoxy paint, tubular bumpers, and hopefully a set of slightly modified factory type graphics, if I can find them. With any luck (and spare time) she'll be on the road by spring.

The red truck is a '79 I bought last spring when I went to look at some parts. Turned out to be a complete truck with just a little floorboard rust so I had to bring it home... That will get a restoration at some later date, maybe with an EJ22.

Has my ************ty chalk-pen shark art. I'll be stenciling out and painting the real thing at some point.

1978 stock except Weber and wheels, which actually I really need some help with :( For some reason I can't get it to fit right. I posted a thread about it and just now finally got some pictures of where it is conflicting with my distributor. Maybe one of you EA71 dudes can help?

 

Anyway, some very fine looking Subies out there... making me really want a tailgate wagon :slobber:
