Default 92 Subaru Leone Touring Wagon

well I have owned it for all most a year now, I been slowly working on it and getting it ready for my next project DD car.



1992 Subaru Loyale AWD Wagon 110,000kms all Original... 2400lbs.. Ver : Canada
this is when I first got it


























its not in bad shape but the original owner never really took care of it body wise, so once I took the mud guards off there was holes starting on the panels.


so it was time to restore this nice clean wagon and make it into a super sport wagon.


I gutted it and did a massive washing in the summer









sand blast powder coated will be done on allot of things








the inside is nice and clean all original again

so I found some sweet RECARO LS-VF in blue cloth, decided to get them since they match the interior of my loyale very well.















also managed to find a nice set of ENKEI Rally Compe wheels from japan for the Leone cars, made in 89. not a bad size also 14x6 4x140 et38, ill make them my summer wheels after sandblasting & powder coat to refresh them back up.

so since I have lots of time waiting for my japanese seat bases to come in, I decided to strip the seats down wash the covers and i called up recaro usa for some new padding for the bottoms...

also these seats have some type of fire proof stuff on them the grey padding on all the foam.. once you peel it all off you get a better depth in bolsters comfort.. also got the lower seat fabric stitched up better common problem with these seats is the fabric splits and you have a hole..

thank you..





































suspension came in from KYB, new shocks should freshen the ride back up




and since I'm sticking with my 4x140 bolt pattern and oem knuckles, got my brakes sand blasted and powder coated red, also go my brake lines made up in SS braided lines. new rotors and pads are on the way along with new seals so I can rebuild everything and add TURBO disc brakes on the rear..

funny thing is one front STi brembo calliper has the same amount of pistons as all four of my brake combined haha

Awesome project!

Pity you don't have the "Touring Wagon" with the step roof. We had it here in the states for a model year or two.

Nonetheless, looks like a blast! Good luck!

I dont remember ever seeing the raised roof version in canada, wish this one had it but less metal and weight will keep it pretty fast in the end... as of now its 2400lbs so add 80hp more and it will be fun ride..

these cars are so much fun to drive why you sell it ? did it need work ?



























well I just love recaro... new foam still can be ordered from recaro for these seats




after installation of the fresh washed fabric ready to go in the wagon..




I think its a perfect match, these seats feel right at home in the wagon.





JDM seat rails still made for these Leone models..
Juran racing from japan, best part is you buy the base and the sliders come with the base welded all up ready to go
