Propane Power! 1983 Subaru SanFu LPG 600

SanFu LPG 600, that sounds like a Japanese bullet train or a Godzilla nemesis, but it’s actually a 1983 Subaru Sambar van that has been converted to propane power and imported by a company in Texas. I know, confusing. This… more»

It Ain’t Easy Being Green: 1970 Subaru Sambar

This is a strange opening photo but it shows the unusual factor of this micro-pickup much more so than the other photo that the seller has provided in the Craigslist ad shown here. This is a tiny (9′-10″), rare… more»

Subaru’s weird and rare SVX sports coupe was a grand touring enigma, with a potentially great car held back in a few significant ways. These were not the easiest vehicles to live with maintenance-wise, and finding a good one… more»

Desert Rat: 1978 Subaru BRAT

Most of us know that the Subaru BRAT stands for Bi-Drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter. I guess BDRATT didn’t quite roll off the tongue as well in those marketing meetings. This example is a 1978 Subaru BRAT and it can be… more»

Compact Truck Collection: Five Subaru BRATs

Subaru Brats are getting increasingly hard to find; I have a saved-search notification for new listings on Craigslist in my area and sometimes go months at a time without a new one popping up, let alone a decent one… more»

4WD Super Mini: 1989 Subaru Justy RS

Our own Matt Hurst recently showed us a newer and nicer Justy and I’m surprised to see another one in almost the same configuration for sale. This is a 1989 Subaru Justy 4WD 5-speed two-door sedan but this one isn’t fuel-injected… more»

33,000 Mile Survivor: Subaru Leone Wagon

Depending on where you are in the US, you might see Subarus everywhere. These dependable all-wheel-drive cars are the default choice for drivers who regularly deal with mud, snow and ice. Barn Finds reader Sean S found this 1990… more»

Not Your Usual Rusty Justy: 1990 Subaru Justy GL

When you think of classic 90’s Subarus, the Justy isn’t exactly the first model that springs to mind. It’s likely no coincidence that the Justy was discontinued in the USA the same year Subaru introduced its iconic Outback, but… more»

Sedate Survivor: 1978 Subaru DL Sedan

As an incurable fan of survivor cars no matter what they are, and also an incurable fan of Subarus, I couldn’t resist this 1978 Subaru DL sedan. A four-door sedan? Crazy. This rare survivor is listed on eBay with… more»

Chicken Tax Beater: 1982 Subaru Brat

4WD Wedge: 1989 Subaru XT

$9,000 Kei Car! 1970 Subaru 360 Deluxe Ragtop

BRAT or BRUT? 1981 Subaru BRAT

Some folks love to modify cars. 4WD vehicles seem to be ripe for modification, sometimes turning into almost cartoon-like vestiges of their former glory. This 1981 Subaru BRAT is destined to be one of those former glory dealios.. unless… more»

President Reagan Approved: 1986 Subaru BRAT GL
