|Pictures 9/4/2003, before any work was started.
This is the 1984 Subaru GL Brat. It's has a 4spd D/R 4wd Manual Tranny.
One of the great things about this car, is it still has it's jump seats in the bed,
still welded down, many people tore the seats out for space, or made them detachible.
Well at anyrate, it's very rare to find one of these with the jump seats still intact.
So I'm restoring the car, and I'm going to use it as a daily driver/a little offroad fun maybe.
It needs alot of cleaning inside and out, and I have to rebuild the engine.
The previous owner ran it without oil :( so the engine makes horrible knocking sounds.
Anyway heres all the pictures of it before we started tearing it apart for rebuild.

The car getting ready to be towed home.
Damage on the front driver's side fender.
The hood and front end hit something pretty hard, the damage looks pretty bad, but fixable.
Inside the brat.
A look at the dash. Note all the brown gunk coating the dash.
Rear driver side tire, before it got replaced to tow.
The tailgate, these always seem to be munched, it contains the only rust on the entire car.
The bed of the brat, has the orginal jump seats with seatbelts still welded in place.
Rope towed home, made it in one piece.
Me being proud inside my new (but old) Brat.
Yet another shot, Austin decided I just had to do this pose.
