This car was originally purchased as a driver with a bad head gasket on the factory 2.5 NA engine. It was completely gutted and stripped down for a thorough restoration and drivetrain upgrade. A wrecked 2002 WRX was acquired as a donor car for the complete engine/drivetrain conversion. The end result is a classy looking second generation Legacy with a factory backed power boost with an emphasis on reliability and usable every day comfort. From it's rebuilt heads to it's brand new OEM shortblock with 1 year factory warranty, this car's powertrain should be ready for years of reliable daily driver duty.

As always, nice looking build, Kent!

Can you toss the price in your title?

Thanks!



the bitterness of low quality remains long after the temporary joy of a low price has faded

Kent -- Yet again, a very different and clean build.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Kent in Az for some Galant VR4 parts and I can say he is great guy to deal with. Also knows his stuff better than most.

Good luck with the sale Kent.

haha I have been trying to resist the cars of my youth for more than 20 years now and damn its always hard to resist, its original RHD jdm YO!

sorry couldnt resist the jdm lingo- Im older than I write, kinda fun but this is adult owned and driven albeit very short distance

JAKE: I'll ship this to you if you want it, I'll trade you your broke [email protected]# mitsu

LHD pulsar are uber rare as I have heard that there were only literally a few 100's imported to the UK and then they were canned in 1994, so getting a LHD pulsar is ultra(man) rare although it can be converted albeit with a similar chassis nissan like the 91-94 nissan sentra se-r, I thought about doing that so the cops wouldnt give me more looks at the car

BTW: GREAT real world build without compromises, I just love it weather its a subaru or mitsu or for that matter hyundai genesis coupe!

I just got the car tuned with the new engine. It's surprisingly quick considering how relatively stock it is.


And Yes, CCW Classics make everything more gooder... especially when they are super wide and wrapped in 335mm slicks... I can't wait.

Wow, this thing is amazing. I'm actually in the market for a Legacy GT, I just don't know if the bank will cough up $15k for a 98. What's the status of the title?

The title is free, clear, and NOT salvage... but yeah, no bank is going to loan on a 13 year old car... especially at any sort of value.


BTW... if the Ebay listing doesn't end at $15K with a buyer, I will be dropping it down to $13K for another 10 days. If it doesn't sell then, I'll just keep if for a while and get some enjoyment out of it.

If I come up with $13k in the next week, I'll give you a buzz, but is highly unlikely. Whoever gets that ride will certainly be a happy customer. Good luck with the sale.
