A Subaru Brat will be subjected to harsh conditions during its lifetime and so quality parts are critical to trouble-free operation. Preventing serious injury accidents is simpler with the correct safety equipment. Driving your car without properly functioning safety equipment will be devastating if the equipment should fail. A breakdown can cause a lot of stress, but a business like will solve your problems in no time. Owning a Subaru was a good choice, and keeping it in showroom condition is an even better idea. Looking for a good source for quality parts can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack, but it really doesn't have to. The Subaru you chose was put together with the highest quality and expertise; it should get new OEM components of a similar top level of value.

Subaru Brat

In 1978, an odd little vehicle that looked like a stunted version of the Chevy El Camino or the Ford Ranchero began appearing at Subaru dealerships. Known as the BRAT (for "Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter"), this vehicle was developed specifically for the export market and was never sold in its native country. Although sales in the U.S. and Canada were discontinued in 1987, the BRAT continued in production and was sold in Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand for another seven years after that.

The BRAT was based on an earlier model, a compact known as the Leone, which was later replaced by the Legacy. Technically, it was a pickup truck. However, the bed was too small to be really practical as a work vehicle. In addition, it contained two rear-facing jump seats. Reportedly, the existence of these jump seats had to do with avoiding a steep tariff placed on light duty pickup trucks by the U.S. government. Normally, foreign car makers were charged a 2.5% tax for the privilege of bringing their products into the country. However, because of what has come to be known as the "Chicken Tax" (the result of a "trade war" with West Germany and France in the 1960s), small trucks and other imports were charged a whopping 25%. Hence, the jump seats and the official classification of the BRAT as a passenger coupe. Those seats disappeared in 1985, however.

The BRAT was indeed a four wheel drive vehicle, originally powered by Subaru's EA-71 engine. This engine displaced 1.6 liters and produced a mere 68 horsepower. After 1981, this was upgraded to the 1.8 liter EA-81, with an optional turbocharger producing 94 horsepower. The first models had a single range transfer case for engaging the front axle. After 1981, Subaru began equipping some BRAT models with a dual range transfer case. Customers could choose between a four speed manual transmission or a three speed automatic.

The BRAT has gotten a bit of celebrity over the years. California governor and later U.S. president Ronald Reagan bought one of the first BRATs in 1978 for traveling around his extensive ranch in Southern California, which remained in the family for twenty years. The BRAT was also featured in the cult film Napoleon Dynamite, driven by one of the supporting characters.

Because of the rear jump seats, the Subaru BRAT has been designated as one of the "Top 10 Scariest Cars" by Auto Trader, which reported more than 2700 Internet searches for "Subaru BRAT for sale" in September of 2011.

Some later Subaru BRAT parts interchangeable with other models include the fenders and hood as well as some engine components, as the EA engine was installed in other Subaru models.
