1984 Subaru BRAT

The BRAT was Subaru's small pickup, and, according to ads, was "fun on wheels". Today, BRATs are most famous for the backwards-facing seats in the bed. These were installed so Subaru could call the BRAT a passenger car, and avoid the high taxes on small trucks imported to the U.S. in the '80s. The BRAT was restyled for 1983, to the design shown here. This one is in great condition, and the windshield banner, dual sunroof, and gold mesh rims are all great period touches.
