Rare, One-Owner: 1979 Subaru Leone Hardtop GTS
December 23, 2017
I saw plenty of Subaru 4WD 5-door stationwagons growing up in Australia, but old Subarus are extremely hard to come by in Japan. So, to see this highly-optioned 2-door, I consider myself quite lucky.
This Leone hardtop was built in 1979. It has a 1,781cc flat 4 engine.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way,
which would be not cool! <More>
