Full Time 4WD Turbo: 1987 Subaru GL

This next car comes as a tip from Jeff S who writes: Turbo Subies last forever…er…not really but this is interesting.  I have to admit that this machine does have some interesting street cred regarding its turbo, hatch, manual trans, and push button hi-lo 4WD.  Find this 1987 Subaru GL offered for $2,500 in Eastern West Virginia via craigslist…which can’t be much more than the seller paid for it about a year ago.

 From the seller:

I would trade for an STI drive train. Our ’05 Outback XT has developed a rod knock and i’ve always wanted to swap a six speed STI setup in. 

Cool old survivor car. Under 82K miles. Turbo, hatchback, manual trans, HI-LO push button 4WD with locking diffs. Really a cool old original Subaru. It deserves a better home. I bought new injectors for it and STILL havent got around to working on it. Overall really nice. Only bad spot is the normal drivers seat wear and it was in a small fender bender at some point. New fuel pump and stainless gas tank. Needs a good wash from sitting. 

Ask for detailed pics of the fender bender.

Here is the original AD from when I bought the car: 


I injured myself pretty badly back in July and simply haven’t been able to wrench on anything. I’m still healing from the surgery. Now my daughter and work is taking up most of my time. If interested shoot me a message and we can discuss things.
