I have for sale a 1981 Subaru GL 4x4 Wagon that is in excellent condition inside and out. The car is originally from Sedona, Arizona. It was purchased by an older couple that was trading in their 1977 Subaru wagon. They drove it around for 30,000 miles and then gave it to their daughter who lives in Grass Valley, CA. Her and her husband drove it around for another 30,000 miles and sold it to their Subaru mechanic. He kept it in his garage for the next 15 years, working on the engine, transmission, brakes, body, and any other pieces he could find to restore it back to its beauty. Hard times forced him to sell, and that's when I picked it up. A growing family and a need for a bigger car is my reason for selling, but this fine auto is sure to deliver years and years of satisfaction and envy wherever she may go.

Here is a list of items, accessories, and features:

* Only 65,832 original miles!!!

* 1800cc horizontally opposed, liquid cooled, aluminum alloy engine. (DL Model has a 1600cc)

* Previous mechanic resurfaced heads and adjusted valves.

* Full time front wheel drive with On Demand 4 Wheel Drive Hi and Low

* 4 Speed Synchromesh transmission with a new clutch

* Rack and pinion steering with new shocks, you can also manually adjust front and rear suspension for added ground clearance.

* New brakes. Subaru provides a dual-diagonal braking system with power assist front disc brakes and power assist rear drum brakes. If one fails the other will still stop you.

* New Paint! Professionally repainted factory gold.

* Desert Fox graphic decals which were offered from the dealer back in 1981. Added the desert sunset rear window shade. (Both can be removed without affecting paint or window.)

* Original plaid and tan interior, with absolutely no rips! The rear bench was never sat in and the seat belts were always tucked under the seat.

* Air conditioning with recharged system.

* Rear defroster and rear window wiper.

* Original AM/FM Radio

* 4 brand new tires with less than 100 miles on them, and a new full size spare. Also have 4 brand new studless snow tires.

*Rare working "3rd Eye" Passing Light in center of grill.

* Factory Luggage rack and Dust deflector rear wing.

* New catalytic converter, passed smog with ease.

* New plugs, wires, rotor, and cap.

* New belts and hoses.

* Dash mat and rear cargo mat. Dash has no cracks. Slight fading on rear cargo carpet, but no rips.

* Original jack, Subaru tool kit, owners manual, dealer brochure, and original bill of sale from 1981. Also havefull servicerepair manual.

* Front and rear ashtrays are spotless, car has never been smoked in. Everything is clean and in like new condition.

The car has plenty of pep, it cruises down the highway at 70mph with ease. It gets great gas mileage and you can park it anywhere. Turns tight and brakes on a dime. All lights and electrical work. Everything works and runs great mechanically. The car has no leaks and does not burn oil or overheat. The body is straight with no rust. All chrome trim is straight and shines bright. All rubber is in tact and sealed tight. Front window has one rock chip in upper left corner that I am calling on to get filled.

The car is located in Folsom, CA. Buyer is responsible for any shipping arrangements and charges. I will accept PayPal, cashier's bank check, or U.S.A. Cash! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or to request additional photos at
