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 tax on small trucks imported to the U.S.--known as the the chicken tax. The BRAT was restyled for 1983, bringing the styling up to date with the rest of Subaru's line. This early DL features, in addition to its original white wheels and jump seats, some awesome stripes and graphics.
