Question Thinking about buying a Subaru Justy AWD hatchback....need info...


There is a guy here in town that is selling his 85 JUSTY for 350 Bucks. The body is bad and the rear axle is ALMOST broken. Engine is 2K shy of 100k. The only reason I would buy this car is to Rally Cross and have A LOT of fun with it. Also I would drive the car when the weather is BAD, because I am trying to keep my RS as nice as possible.

Any idea what a new rear axle would cost for this car? Also, anyone know of turbo kits for this car. I can always build a custom set up(after I rebuild the damn engine). This car is LIGHT as hell. I believe it to only be 17-1800 pounds. I know it has the potential to be a good off road racer so if anyone knows ANYTHING about this car....GIVE ME ALL THE DARN INFO YOU CAN GIVE ME

Thanks, Elliott**

Question

Did they make Justy's in 1985? I thought 87 or so was the first year.

You get specs from Carpoint for the 1988 and up Justy.

I checked Kelley Blue Book and it doesn't start listing the Justy until 1987 model year.

Do a search on JUSTY topics to get info for upgrading these cars. JCS has turboed one of these. There are also brake upgrades available for them(use Honda cross drilled rotors) Honda 14" wheels will also fit this car.

I meant 87. I typed 85 by mistake.

Do you think the car is worth the 350 Bucks? I bet I could get it for 200 Bucks. I think I'm gonna get it anyways, I mean 2-300 bucks for an AWD Justy Hatch is a good deal. I spend more than that at the mall on a Weekend! I think the car has lots of potential so screw it, I'm gonna buy it.

Anyone else own this car?
