Many people seek cheap old cars for sale. Some enjoy collecting the cars and keeping them as trailer queens. Others enjoy fixing up the old car and then using it as a daily driver. In the world of old cars, the automaker Subaru is a bit of a niche, as it is a Japanese brand.
For example, some people collect the Subaru Brat. The Brat is a small pickup truck like car vaguely resembling an El Camino. It was first sold in the United States in 1977. Another old Subaru that can often be found cheaply is the Subaru 360. It is a very small car made in 1968 and 1969. Sometimes you will see the hot dog truck version, though it is fairly rare.
For more recent Subaru models, you might want to look for a Subaru Impreza WRX STI for sale click here. This vehicle is more recent on the scene, so you won’t find many old ones for sale. They also tend to live hard driven lives, so high mileage old STI’s are not very common on the marketplace. The STI does boast a turbocharged engine producing a bit over 300 horsepower at the crankshaft. Combined with all wheel drive, the STI is a popular, capable sport compact car.
It is more common, however, to find a Subaru Impreza for sale by owner than it is to find an STI. The Impreza is a basic, efficient, small passenger car. It was introduced in the United States in 1993. It is popular with families looking for a capable, reliable small car. It had a 1.8L 4-cylinder, 2.2L 4-cylinder, and in recent years a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. The power was adequate, but could be described as anemic in applications such as hauling cargo, towing, or driving in hillly terrain. The power was between 100 horsepower and in later years 160 horsepower at the crankshaft. The all wheel drive does add additional losses so figure maybe 70% of that power makes it to the wheels.
