    This one has a black interior. As a result, in major markets such as Australia, Europe and North America, it was instead identified with a trim level designation, some of which included: I absolutely love the stock look of these cars with their plain-Jane wheels. And, seeing that Front Wheel Drive script on the front fenders hits me in the gut.

    The Malaise Subaru Apocalypse is in full swing in Colorado, if we are to judge from the selection of old Leones in Denver junkyards these days. Is anyone restoring these things? The same rule applies when it comes to orange and white tape stripes: I thought that speedometers on US-market cars from the through model years were required to max out at 85 MPH. You know, for safety. Either Subaru found some loophole for this car, or someone swapped in a later MPH speedo.

    Imagine, this car doing ! The quality of Subaru products improved as much in the s as did Hyundai stuff, which may explain the hindsight-based perception that the old GLs were bulletproof cue the enraged commenters who got , trouble-free miles out of their Malaise Subies. My impression was always that they were miles ahead of anything from Detroit at the time.

    Mechanically they were very sound they just had huge rust issues. It would be interesting to get a post written by someone in the industry with knowledge of how they were able to make such huge improvements in automotive rustproofing technology over the past 30 years. As a kid I know rust was a huge issue in the early 80s but by the mid 90s there was a huge improvement. One of these in gold was my first new car, purchased after a miserable Chicago winter in a RWD Corolla.

    I had no mechanical trouble with it all, but midwest road salting ate it up from under me. Introduction of double-sided galvanizing. Incremental improvements in the processes and materials used in the e-coat body-dip process. A Chrysler Engineering Director Mr. Love … there were, and still are, a whole bunch of top managers running around in Chrysler with that family name … was our neighbor, and sang in our church choir … I recall him giving me a lift home from church one evening after choir practice, ca.

    Prior to the introduction of this technology, the only parts that were galvanized were things like rocker panels and valances. This was because of cost the galvanic dip was done after stamping, today it isintegrated into the rolling operation at the steel mill , and because it wasnot possible to create a post-dip smooth surface I think this is solved today by rolling the sheet again, just prior to coiling, after the zinc is deposited on the surface of the sheet.

    It is a rust free Washington State car with a surprisingly good interior and is pretty damn cool. The car had only 69k miles at the time. It was to replace a great Toyota Corona Liftback that had been totaled in a wreck R20 engine: A different story for a different thread. Anyway, I loved the Subie. It had a five speed and a really good air conditioner even for Texas summers. It was not as smooth or as powerful as my in-laws Civic Wagon but the thing was dead reliable and rode like a magic carpet; credit the torsion bar suspension.

    I made deliveries for a pizza place for about two years using the Subaru and never had a problem. Even without 4wd it would go a lot of places in the Texas hill country that, say, my fathers Bonneville would not.

    It had fantastic ground clearance for a small car. It seems Chrysler and Packard were on to something good in the mids. I kept the Subaru until when I committed a double mistake: The cc flat four was rated at 68hp and I saw the speedometer needle half way between 75 and 80 one time on Interstate It did get mpg however. I even got a speeding ticket in it once for going 45 in a 35mph zone.

    The cop must have been bored. As the previous posters have said, these cars were pretty much bulletproof mechanically. But they all succumbed to rust before thier 10th birthdays, and most needed welding at only years to pass inspection here in Maine. I think your assessment about these cars being unreliable and shoddy is completely off the mark.

    It's a fully schmick 1979 Subaru Leone GFT with... twin carbs!
