Unusually original two owner example that's been hiding away for a few
years showing just 87,686 miles with scope for recommissioning and some cosmetic
Dating from January 2000 this cool and uncommonly stock looking 1st generation, late model Impreza comes to us from a period of hibernation and is finished in the unusual, but attractive colour of dark copper/red and sits upon a set of attractive 16” six-spoke alloy wheels.
Under that lovely scooped bonnet, we find the popular 2.0-litre EJ20 turbocharged flat-four cylinder Boxer engine developing c.201bhp as a GC8K Turbo 2000 version, with power going to all-four wheels via five-speed manual transmission offering lots of fun and the added security of all-wheel drive. We did note fitment of a larger bore exhaust which lets some of the mellow Boxer warble out a little more than stock.
Inside, we find black cloth sports seats with grey inserts, electric windows, MOMO steering wheel, heated rear screen, headlight wash, electric mirrors, radio/CD player and after-market gear knob.
The car has been stood since 2015/2016 when the last test expired (it passed with no advisories) at which time is showed 87,317 miles and was pulled out of hibernation earlier this year and presented for MOT when it failed on 12 points, although nothing that would scare many Scooby lovers away, much of it relating to having stood still, with only c.300 miles had been covered between tests.
The history file includes the V5C recording just one former keeper to the vendor who has owned the car since 2002, the owner’s pack and service book which records 11 older stamps, the original purchase invoice, a few invoices, Tracker info and keys.
An interesting opportunity to restore this low mileage, two owner 1st generation Impreza to its former glory and look forward to a good blat across some open country roads.
