Subaru 1984-2003

The era of the ‘enthusiast’ Subaru has disappeared (BRZ excepted) and interesting Subes from the 1980s-90s are vanishing.

We saw just one of the rally-rocket RX 4WDs offered and two cheap SVXs and no Vortex coupes at all.

Liberty-based RS Turbos are looking like a threatened species however prices are steady.

| Buyer's Guide: Subaru Liberty RS Turbo

A couple of ex-NZ twin-turbo GTB wagons were offered at ambitious prices but cheaper and preferable for frequent use is the Liberty B4, with good ones still below $8000.

Anyone in the market for a traditional 4WD Subaru won’t have to look hard or spend very much. Brumby utilities were last sold new 25 years ago yet plenty survive and very good ones cost $5000.

L Series wagons from the 1980s-90s, still handy for gentle off-roading and beach fishing, cost $2000-4000.

Liberty RS $7395 [8] 

Legacy GT/GTB $11,300 [5]

Liberty B4 $6930 [17] 

SVX $6100 [2] 

4WD Wagon 1984-92 $2235 [13]

Brumby 1986-94 $3585 [24]
