For sale is my personal build, otherwise known as “Frankenstein”.  It is a 2007 Impreza wagon that was built as a sedan-converted STI wagon.  It was my dream to build something that never existed from the factory, and I accomplished this task.  Reason for selling is that I am selling off my summer/winter cars in order to fund my Stage Rally aspirations and keep only 1 daily driver.

Build completed 25,000 kms ago.  Originally built with an EJ207 V9 Spec-C and Legacy GT 5-speed, however this was swapped for the EJ257 and 6-speed setup 15,000 kms ago (EJ207 saved for Rally Car).  The entire car was stripped down to the bare shell; any surface rust on the interior floors was ground down, stripped, and painted with POR15.  The front and rear wheel wells were also cleaned, stripped, and had bedliner paint applied to protect them.  Rear quarter panel arches have been completely sealed on the interior and exterior, and are rust free.  The sedan rear end conversion was done using brand new OEM metal rear quarter panels.  The original wagon quarter panels were modified to accept the wide conversion, and cleaned and sealed prior to finalizing the sedan quarters.  The shell is very clean and has only seen a couple winters during its life; underbody was always washed thoroughly.  All subframes and underbody components were sandblasted and powdercoated black; the car is very clean underneath.  Engine bay was cleaned, stripped, and has bedliner applied.

New Safety, and new alignment!

      If you don’t already have it, you should get it appraised for all the custom work that’s gone in. If it was in a hit, mpi would only give you street value of the base car otherwise.
      Great project, glws.
