I am posting here because I used to spend a lot of time on this forum, back when I owned this car:
I didnt have the money to keep it at the time, and have since been through a SRT-4 I bought for $2.5k and rebuilt, a Honda Prelude SH, an 83 733i 5-speed, and my latest project, a 1977 Datsun 280z. I have enjoyed each of these cars for what they are, but I miss my LGT. I would love to own another Subaru, whether it be another LGT or maybe a Forester XT. Would be interested in a trade for either (plus cash on your end preferably), only if the car has a manual transmission.
I spent the better part of last year building this car with help at my shop, and cut no corners on the installation. It runs and drives perfectly on the swapped turbo motor at 10 psi of boost. There is no significant rust on the body; the floor pans are free of rust, and the only notable rust is under the battery tray, and where the frame has scraped from the low ride height. The car even still has working A/C, I believe the condenser has a leak that is preventing the A/C from holding a charge. I am just looking to get back out of this car the money I spent in parts, not including the professional labor put in to building this car. This was going to be the promotional/show vehicle for my shop, Urban Legends Motorsport, but I had to reprioritize my funds. The only thing this car needs to be in show condition: body work to cover the moldings, mirrors and bumpers I removed to give it the 240z look, replace door/window seals, and refinish or cover the dashboard. All fluids have been flushed and recently filled with factory-specified fluids.
