1991 Subaru Legacy LsI am considering the sale of a custom one-of-a-kind Subaru Legacy rock crawler. The car was hand-built using common, readily available and strong parts .it is still a unibody car with sub frames that hold the springs and steering box. It was not simply set on to a four wheel drive truck chassis.
It still retains the original Subaru 4 cylinder engine that makes more horsepower and torque than a common Toyota 4 cylinder. It is mated to a Toyota w56 5-speed transmission using a custom bellhousing and Tacoma 6 cylinder clutch. It has brand new Marlin crawler built dual transfer cases with triple stick option. These transfer cases have less than 100 miles.
The front axle is a Land Cruiser fj62 with 4:88 gears, alloy shaft, six shooter knuckles 4 X4 Labs steering and a locker.
Rear axle is a 2002 Tacoma 8.4 inch ring and pinion with 4:88 gears and a spool.
It uses common Chevrolet leaf springs in the rear with custom slider box shackles and Jeep Springs in the front with the same slider box shackle.
It has tons of articulation and is extremely stable . It provides for a very comfortable ride.
37 X 14.5 Toyo mud terrains with less than 500 miles on them.
Still retains complete interior and carpets with comfortable seat, air conditionin, nice stereo...
The car was built to drive on the road as well as tackle any trails. Hydro assist steering, heavy duty CV drive shafts, it was built to take all the abuse that you can dish out.
The car has less than 1000 miles on it since being built and has had the same owner since 2004. All the power door lock, Window, dome lights Etc work perfectly, the car will include a replacement engine with 105,000 miles on it that has been gone through with all new gaskets, timing belt, water pum, oil pump Etc. As well as an extra clutch and heavy flywheel. The engine that is currently in the car has over four hundred twenty thousand miles on it and still runs grea, it does however experience minor overheating issues every once in awhile.
So in a nutshell we have a car that you can take the family On Any Trail in and comfort and still retain reasonable street legal characteristics, and it'll be the only one anybody ever sees. it is quite a conversation piece. Car is currently registered with a clean title and ready for a new home.
