Up for sale is a 1978 Subaru GL Wagon 4WD. An original California car, ne in this mechanical shape is quite rare. The body with original paint is in fair condition, ith small amounts of rust on the front fenders, ront sills, he hatch, nd some small rust on the rear panel behind the bumper. The paint and body has numerous scratches, ings, nd general paint issues. The interior is also in fair condition, ith torn covering on the driver's seat, cracked dash, nd worn rear carpet. The rare factory heavy duty 'winch' front bumper is installed on the car. The front carpet was replaced with a homemade piece to limit road noise, ear and hatch area carpets are original in somewhat poor condition. All seatbelts are original andfunctionwell, ith shoulder belts in the front and retracting lap belts in the rear. Front as well as rear wiper/washer units function perfectly, he rear washer bag is in near perfect condition. All door seals are soft and seal well, ith minimal tearing, nd a new windshield seal has been installed. The original AMRadio functions, hough it is quite noisy. The original toolkit (with extras specific to the 4WD model), s well as a 1978-era AAA Southern California owner's kit and factory service & rebuild manuals specific to the car are included. The dealer-installed A/C is mostly complete, ny removed parts will be included with the car. The car's original as-sold blue California plates are included, nd they may be able to beattachedto the vehicle. It has a clean California title, s well as passed smog with flying colors, he certificate isvalidunder the end of August.
Where this car really shines is the mechanical restoration. An ATK rebuilt engine new in the crate was sourced, s well a new Hitachi DCJ-306 carburetorwas installed. Any service items that were worn at all were replaced or reconditioned. There are very few modifications to the car that deviated from its originality, added a relay to the factory fan switch, nd a coolant overflow bottle, oth which improve its hot-weather cooling system performance. for I've personally put over 2500 miles on the car since registering it, sing it for a 45 mile commute in the local mountains with no issues. For fuel economy, t gets high 20sinthe city and in the mid 30s on the highway. Given the lack of overdrive, ts fuel economy is spectacular.
