1994 Subaru Impreza Wagon
Available for: $15,995
This 1994 Subaru Impreza WRX is the swiss army knife of JDM imports. Fast, well equipped, and spacious this five-seater does it all! Finished in Light Silver Metallic (406) the body is in good shape aside from some minor dings and chips associated with normal use. Offered with a mere 141k verified and documented miles this wagon packs a punch thanks to its spicy 2.0L turbo, manual transmission, and patented symmetrical AWD. Recently serviced and legally imported this Japanese Classic hauler is practical, lovable, and highly collectible to boot!
The Impreza wagon offers tons of interior volume for humans and their precious cargo. The upholstery is finished in a light blue and gray cloth which is soft to the touch. It has avoided any major rips, stains or tears over the years. Power amenities include electric windows, power locks, and mirrors. Overall, the interior stays in its original form with the OEM Nardi steering wheel and a rare rear floor stabilizer bar. It is obvious that under prior ownership, this Impreza was cared for. The headliner is clear of stains and the dash lacks any cracking or bubbling. The driver-side rear door card shows some wear on the armrest but we have seen much worse. It does not affect the functionality but is a noticeable blemish. The factory head unit was ditched for a Carrozzeria double-DIN unit that works as it should. When the temperature outside is too hot, the factory a/c pumps cold air to cool you down and keep you comfortable. The original floor mats are included in this gem along with the rear cargo cover. It is nice to have the rear cover since there is no privacy glass, but you are still able to hide your valuables in the cargo area. The rear seats fold down to allow you more storage to haul some larger items without needing an SUV to be on hand. That's not to say the interior is perfect as the fuel gauge is currently not working and there is some light wear to the touch surfaces.
Under the bonnet is the EJ20G motor paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The closed-deck design found in these JDM versions is a solid motor, giving you a stronger block to cope with modifications. We installed a new 12V battery that helps fire this boxer motor up with no hesitation. The battery should last for years to come and will not leave you stranded, even in the dead of winter. Acceleration is impressive and the 2.0L produces fantastic midrange power. Braking's performance is equally good and responds to your requests to stop quickly. Brand new all-terrain tires allow maximum year-round traction and quiet down the ride noticeably. The front and rear grip is tremendous even over loose surfaces. Subaru's suspension design gives you enough clearance on and off-road yet still delivers a solid ride quality. New serpentine belts were also replaced under the hood along with a fresh oil and filter service when it was going through the shop. It's turn-key and ready to roll, and only just needs a new owner!
