Subaru 1973-1995 from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

There has not been a new Subaru Brumby sold in over 25 years yet survival rates are extraordinary when compared with Libertys and other Subarus of similar age. Values remain strong with good base-model Brumbys at $5000 and a couple of the Sport version sighted up near $10K.

The 1984-92 L Series wagon is practical but rapidly disappearing, while pre-1984 models are cheap as well.

Two-door GLFs can exceed $5000 but the one collectors want is the mid-1970s GSR coupe.

The SVX coupe, Vortex and rally-winning Leone RX Turbo sedan are all hard to find but cheap if you do find one and decide it warrants preservation.

Leone Coupe 1975-84 $3000 [2]

4WD Wagon 1984-92 $1935 [6]
