1995 (Yes, 1995) Subaru Justy

Say what? A 1995 Subaru Justy? Until today, I thought Subaru stopped selling the Justy in North America 1994.

Nope. It turns out that Subaru continued selling them in Canada for one more year.

The owner is trying to finance his dream of becoming a professional race car driver by selling this car.

This is a poor eBay ad. There is just one picture of the car and a lot of talk about the sellers racing dreams. There is a list of some routine maintenance performed on the car in the past 6 months.

The opening bid is $5000.00 and there is reserve, which hasn't been met. If you buy this car you become a sponsor of the seller's racing team. Being as rare as this car is - and the shape it's in, which appears to be original and very good, with some slight rust - I'm not sure what it's worth. However, I know it's not worth enough to finance a Formula 1 / Indy car racing team. (LeMons, maybe.) My gut is telling me that the reserve price of this car might be ridiculous, bordering on insane.

It's a cool, unusual car. I would love to see more pics, have more info and a Buy It Now price. Without those, I can't write much about this car. I'm just passing it along because maybe you, like me, had no idea a 1995 North American spec Subaru Justy existed.

You are right. This is a great little car, the year is unusual and I've got a thing for the 4x4 Justy. Still, it's a lot of scratch for a 19 year old car that, brand new was only about $10k.

Not sure why these would be anything more than $1,500 dollar used cars. What am I missing?

My daily driver is now a '93 Justy, 5spd, FWD.

It is shockingly fun to drive. About 1800 lbs, combined with ridiculously low gearing makes for quick starts and fun bouncing through traffic.
