Compared to any modern car, its 100x easier to work with. Flat body panels, lots of exposed body metal, no need for expessive custom plastic bits... No airbags or complicated wiring to deal with. The interior will be fun to do once I get it all cleaned out

Check out that radiator too, it looks just like mine. If you're gonna need one, better know sooner than later, for they're impossible to find. I think Subaru3 on Utimatesubaru has a used one left.

Good luck with it all.

Day 3

Alright, I had an hour or so with nothing to do so I lowered the back, adjusted the ride height so the wheels would fit in the back, and put the front wheels on...

I decided to leave it up so I could take some photos and clean underneeth later. Ill take pics this weekend with it on the ground completely.

So here are some good pics of the front suspension as it is, along with underneeth the front of the car. Its quite complicated compaired to Macphereson setups isnt it!

Look closer, its a two-piece radiator with a blower on the smaller radiator. Nothing is missing.

I have the full service manuals for this car too, so I know pretty much what I'm looking at... That blue "blower" on the left also acts as the heater blower for the cabin

WOW, JUST WOW. I thought my brakes were odd, because they have no bolts holding them on, just shims and cotter pins BUt your brakes take the cake You might wanna leave big holes in the floorboards so you and your passengers can help stop the car...if needed.

It doesnt take much to stop a 1500lbs car

But I am looking for the 1300G "Sport" DISC inboard front brakes if I can find them... They are supposedly quite large in terms of rotor size for such a small car.

Are you going to try and source the 1300 motor as well?

I'm actually looking at something more along the lines of an EA71 or EA65 and using a Weber 32/36 Carb and a custom cam along with it...

If I found a 1300 dual carb setup I could actually use that on any pre EA81, but its easier to find/build an EA71 than to find/build a EA62 "S".

However, there may be another option after getting a better look at how the front of the car is setup... It MAY be possible to have a custom built front tubed subframe and use a multilink front suspension from another vehicle of some sort and run an EJ engine with a FWD 5-speed.... But that would require a serious designer/engineer to put together, something I couldnt do my self at all.

this is a cool car.....awesome find.

Some thoughts...what about leaving the body as it is right now? Kind of a rat rod look? Also...wonder how hard it would be to fab the mounts etc to run like a DOHC Honda motor in it? I would think that a mildly built B18C with individual throttle bodies or something cool would work outstanding in something like this car...just a thought.

Good work preserving one of these cars. You have to feel good about that

Go back and look at the first photos of the engine bay... Theres no room for a tall motor in there. Only H motors will fit.

As for the "rat rod" look... The only real rust thats bad is in the side skirt area and under the car. The rest just has small spots of rust here and there. Leaving it how it is just looks like a junker car and with a comprimized chassis...
