Congrats on the purchase. I'm guessing the decals are not original?
That might be a Israeli spec model. But I just want to say you are very lucky to find one and welcome home!
and also :drool:
Israeli model ? The car was first sold in Netherland. Is it possible that Subaru sold a Israeli spec in Netherland ?
It could be possible. And with that said it could just be a euro-spec model but I have seen a Israeli spec car like that before and it looked the same
The most remarkable detail on Arnos car are the Bumpers with the Indicator/position Lamp above. Neither the Asian-Spec-cars got these Bumbers, neither the US-Cars got that. And the Pictures of IsraelCars I found were looking different. Do you have a picture or source of an other car like this "getting lost" European Export...?Originally Posted by bajasoobnut
it has been a long while since I had seen it cause it was on another board, namely the USMB (Ultimate Subaru Message Board) which I have not frequented in a long time
Arno, when you want to know the exact story about the car you bought, you should contact Garage Huisman in Twello, in the Netherlands.
They have been the owner of the car for the past (i think) twenty years.
They have also made the car like this. The story i know is that they made this car with parts of a car which was not from the Netherlands.
I am sure that Jan Huisman (the owner of the company) can tell you the right story.
Huisman has been Subaru dealer from 1973 till 2003. They still are a Subaru specialist.
He and his family also have some fantastic Subaru's: a 73 1400 DL, two 1400 GSR's, an XT and a blue and a white SVX!
They have a website: www.garagebedrijfhuisman.nl
I hope i have helped you a little bit.
