Subaru Brat Advertising Pictures

Subaru Brat Advertising Pictures:

I really love the advertising that Subaru did with the brat.

Subaru Brat: We're changing the face of 4 wheel drive.

What I would give to find a mint Subaru Brat. That winch and bumper bar are really cool. I wonder if you could even find one of those these days.

Subaru Brat: If you tried cruising on this you would be pulled over immediately.

Later that day this Subaru Brat rusted through completely. The jump seats in the back are awesome to sit in. If you never have I suggest that you do.

Legacy World Speed Records

Legacy World Speed Records:

Prior to launching the 1990 Legacy, Subaru drew attention to the car’s capabilities and durability by attempting to set world speed records with the Legacy. In an effort involving three Legacy RS Turbo Sedans, Subaru established a new 100,000 kilometer (62,137 miles) world speed record as well as 13 international records. Some of these records still stand today.

Legacy World Speed Records: For the 1990 model year, Subaru was launching the Legacy, a front-wheel drive model with optional 4-wheel drive. It was larger than previous Subaru models and had a 2.0-liter, 16-valve, turbocharged engine.

(FHI), it wanted to demonstrate the vehicle’s performance, reliability, and durability. Thus began the quest for the 100,000 kilometer (62,137 miles) world record. That represents the distance typically covered during five years of hard driving.

FOR SALE: A very rare 1987 Subaru GL-10 4WD TURBO Wagon w/5 Speed Manual & Digital Dashboard.

I only purchased this car about a month ago. It came from the Allentown PA area and had one original owner (me being the second). It needs some work and I do not have the time to fix it up before winter as I originally hoped. With another Subaru project car already in the garage, sadly this one must go. I am hoping to pass this on to another Subaru enthusiast who has the time to make it perfect again.

The car runs and drives great, shifts smooth and even has a little TURBO light on the dash when you give it some extra gas. All of the digital gauges, warning lights, power windows/mirrors, am/fm/tape player, and other electronics work perfectly. The AC blows cold and the HEAT is hot. The interior is clean and maybe a 7 or 8 out of 10… for its age. I noticed that the frame has had some previous rust repairs and will need some additional work around the frame rails.

The engine is clean and runs great, but pretty much leaks from everywhere. The front axle boots are busted and will need to be replaced (new axles are included in sale). I have the original owners manual and “added security” paperwork, the 1987 Subaru sales catalog, the original keys as well as some extras, and a Haynes Repair Manual. The car will be detailed with a full tank of gas at time of sale!

I am only asking $3800 or best offer. I have the title in hand! If interested in seeing the car or have an questions, please contact me by email. Thank you!

* 4WD
* 5-Speed Manual

Power Steering Systems On Early Subarus Part 2

Power Steering Systems On Early Subarus Part 2:

Power Steering Rack System

Subaru’s power steering system contains a pump, hydraulic line, and a gearbox (rack). The hydraulic pump is a vane-type pump driven by the engine. It provides pressurized fluid for the system.

Oil Pump Operation

The pump has two internal valves: a flow control valve and a relief valve. The flow control valve regulates the volume of power steering fluid delivered to the rack. During high engine rpm, the pressure in the pump overcomes the flow control valve spring. The control valve slides back to close off an oil passage to the rack and to open an oil return port to the pump inlet. This reduces the power assist to the rack during high speeds, improving the steering wheel feel and response.
