And70’s Bugeye STi-Prodrive wagon

I previously posted a work-in progress shot of this Aussie bugeye, the finished product was well worth the wait:

While Subaru made an STi wagon for the bugeye (in fact it was the last STi wagon), it didn’t come equipped with all that the STI sedan did (missing wide fenders and brembos — no special models like the spec C or STI-Prodrive edition).

This home-made STi wagon from New South Wales, Australia makes up for all of this by putting together a tasteful selection of parts from Subaru’s in-house tuner STI and the STI-Prodrive edition onto a wagon chassis — along with a full STI engine and drivetrain swap.

front and rear sedan fenders — the front fenders are bolt on (and you need certain other sedan parts for it to fit) — the rear fenders are weld on to the existing quarterpanel — not an easy task to install for sure.

STI type RS-Zero wheels, made by RAYS – over STI brembo brakes

type RA spec C flip up roof vent

STI-Prodrive edition front bumper and front grille.  Rare JDM “black chrome finish” (2001 model year only) HID headlights

The amazing thing about this car is that it is comprised of nearly entirely of parts from Subaru’s in-house tuner brand STI (Subaru Technica International)– from the bodykit, to the wheels, to the engine.

Manufacturer in-house tuners are usually far from wild when it comes to aftermarket mods – usually designed to protect warranties. One of the great things about the bugeye is that the aftermarket support FROM SUBARU has been incredible, with multiple parts to choose from for each mod.  (No really think about it:  Want some  brakes?  STI ‘Subaru’ 4/2 pot, STI Brembo 4/2 pot, STI Brembo 6-pot, STI AP Racing homologation… what other manufacturer even does that : )
