Subaru Justy

~ by Chris #16 Demaras ~

When I was a kid, back in 1988, my father bought his first Subaru. The brand was still a little quirky back then, but the blueprints of Subaru’s future success were already written. Every Subaru model came with 4WD, including the lowly, subcompact Subaru Justy with an MSRP of only $9,969.

Far from an all-wheel-drive ‘hot hatch’ the Justy was an uninspiring commuter car Subaru built from 1984 to 1994. Equipped with a 1.2 L three-cylinder engine making 80 HP, one interesting detail was the Justy was available with a CVT decades before mainstream car manufacturers started using them enhancing fuel economy.

With retro cars and the ‘radwood’ rides gaining popularity, Gold Fleet Subaru in North Bay, Ontario, has taken the opportunity to offer this low-mileage 1992 Subaru Justy for an eye-popping $13,888.

Even as a Subaru enthusiast, I have to say this is crazy money. But, with only 101K on the clock, could this car be a good candidate for an STI engine swap?
