Default Subaru Chaser?

my friend was looking for a old school, cheap (under $1000, preferably under $500) car for rally/auto x and general beater. Has to be standard, paint/interior doens't matter, as long as it runs. FOudn a 87 subaru chaser for $500 locally, 5 speed, new clutch etc, would be a good pick i think. So how reliable are these beasts and what the heck does one look like, i couldnt' find a picture anywhere, apprently it's a canadian only model. Also, how much hp does it have? i'm guessing it probbaly has 70-100hp.

The Chaser was the canadian name for the GL hatchback, but other then the name their identical to the GL hatchback sold elsewhere. These are probobly one of the most reliable cars ever made. They can take a pounding and beg for more. They were powered by the bulletproof OHV 1.8L EA-81 which put out 73 hp and 90 ft-lbs of torque. Very good cars, just that the salt has gotten most of em in the salt belt areas.

yeah this one mentions that its got rust, but who gives a crap, it's a rally car, doesn't look too bad and you say it's reliable, i think i may just pick it up. If the rust aint on the strut towers, as long as its just doors etc, it'll be awesome!

"2 dr, HB, AWD, lots of rust, has new clutch/brks, nds new exh $500"

well exhaust isn't a problem, it'll be swapped for a straight pipe i'm sure. maybe if i make a big deal i can bring em down to cheap cheap cheap!

Do it! That car would be great for rallyXing! Tough as nails as Mark said, plus you got the short wheelbase and 4WD. 73hp is more than enough!

is it AWD or 4WD? big difference between the two (like EA81 and EA82 which is fuel injected), but it's still a good deal

Chasers/Hatches are all FWD or (part time) 4WD. Not gonna find an AWD one unless someone did some major parts swapping.

Its 4WD on demand, should be fine on dirt but I wouldn't keep it on 4WD on dry pavement for a long time
