1996 Legacy Outback 2.2

Greetings everyone. The time has come for me to sell our trusty Outback. It's a 1996 with 198k miles on the odometer. I purchased it from Euromoto in northeastern PA several years ago. As a matter of course, they change head gaskets and timing belts on all the cars they sell. So the motor has run perfectly since we've had it.

Have a look at the pics and if you have any questions, please let me know.

I'd like to get $1700 for it, but I'm open to reasonable offers.
*Buyer to pay for title transfer and any and all fees.

The good:
  • 2.2 litre engine with approximately 160k miles on it It was swapped in at some point in the car's history. I believe I have the original receipt from the engine transplant. The motor works excellently and I've been rather religious about oil changes.
  • Automatic transmission has clean fluid and shifts properly.
  • Rear diff has Subaru Extra-S oil in it and is nice and quiet.
  • 2 brand new monroe front struts installed about 3 months ago.
  • New catalytic converters.
  • New O2 sensor.
  • New exhaust from cat back.
  • Replaced the engine knock sensor due to the common cracking issue.
  • Heated seats.
  • Heated mirrors.
  • Dunlop Graspic DS-3 snow tires in EXCELLENT condition.
  • Replace both front brake calipers 2 years ago.
  • Replaced the left rear brake caliper 2 years ago.
  • Engine block heater.
  • Two brand new rear Monroe struts. New in box, *uninstalled.
  • New front stabilizer bar bushings and endlinks, *uninstalled.
  • New bushings for the rear stabilizer bar *uninstalled.
  • Replaced the exterior trunk hatch handle with one that actually works.
  • Valid PA state inspection until 8/2013

The bad:
  • Bottom edges of all doors are rusted.
  • Back end of rear wheel arches are rusted.
  • Rust hole just behind attachment point for the left trailing arm.
  • Front stabilizer bar is removed, but will be included (along with mounting hardware and new bushings/endlinks).

The car runs very well, gets decent mileage and is overall, a very good car. The reason that I'm selling is due to the rust. It's still very drivable and has a valid PA state inspection until August of this year. But, the time has come to find a new Subie to wrench on and drive.

Just realized I had the price set to 1800 instead of 1700. Sorry 'bout that.

PS: If anyone thinks the price is not in touch with reality, please let me know. I want to sell the car, not gouge anyone on the price.
