The Subaru Leone (Italian for Lion) was a compact econobox manufactured by Fuji Heavy Industries from 1971 to 1994 and
marketed as the DL in the USA. Like most Subarus, it was powered by a flat-4 engine and was available in multiple body configurations including the funky-cool El Camino style BRAT (Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter)…but this one started life as a simple DL Hatch. Find this 1980 Subaru DL Camino offered for $3,500 or reasonable offer, located in Sierra Vista, AZ via NASIOC forums.
The seller indicates that the previous owner cut off the rear roof section and welding in a rear wall/window from a BRAT, but it leaks a bit. The seller also admits that he bought it for RallyCross (and because it’s AWESOME) but found it wasn’t as competitive as he’d hoped. Is this a case of a poor workman blaming his tools or a Holley carb fed EJ22E being a pretty miserable way to get performance out of a Subaru hatch.
