Exclamation 1978 Subaru Turbo Brat

Hello i am new to this board, was just wanting to say hi, and let you guys and gals know what i ahve been up to. I have several Subarus, one being my favorite which is a unfinneshed, but drivable, 1978 Subaru Brat with a 87 EA82T motor, tranny, and rear end in the car. it is fast and a blast to drive.

here are some pics of the car

Excellent find!

Welcome to the board. The old school portions of the site seem to be a bit more "user friendly" than the more popular forums. Cheers.

thanks it took my freind and i over a year to build the car, and the fruits of this wild car are worth it, we like driving it and spanking all the mustangs. it is alot of fun especially when they find out that it doesnt have a v8 in there that is spanking them.

Very cool! Was that motor originally longitudally mounted, or was it transverse? I would love to get one and put a EJ25 into it for some good torque, and take it out off-roading.

In Australia, the Subaru Brat was marketed as the Brumby.
