1995 Subaru Impreza with a Ford 302 V8

This 1995 Subaru Impreza is for sale on eBay with a starting big of $9,999 or buy-it-now for $14,500 in Vallejo, California. The project took six years to complete and has over 100 hours of fabrication. It was built specifically for drifting which is why it’s RWD only. The previous engine was a SR20DET inline-four and after it blew the current owner went with a Ford 302 V8. The drivetrain consists of a T5 five-speed manual transmission, custom one-piece driveshaft and STI R180 welded rear end. There are a few issues a future daily driver might want to fix such as speedometer, fuel gauge, front turn signals are not connected, fluctuating idle, minor oil leak, no hood prop or parking brake, and a fixed position racing seat. For more photos please view the SuperStreet’s article or the very detailed build thread.
