Custom Pickup Truck Beds – Post-oil crisis, compact vehicles, including pickup trucks, are in high demand in the United States. Chevrolet brought an Isuzu pickup that was given a badge as LUV and then added the S10 developed domestically. Dodge imported a Mitsubishi model called the D50 and then carried out its own Rampage. Ford used Mazda which he sold as a Courier until he streamlined the Ranger himself.
Toyota and Nissan have popular entries on the compact pickup truck market and Subaru entered into that action also when the president of Subaru of America requested a base in Japan for vehicles that would have a unique appeal.
Custom Pickup Truck Beds
The result was Subaru Brat, who not only had a four-wheel drive but four seats – two of which were installed facing back on a pickup truck bed.
A 1983 Subaru Brat is Pick of the Day. The trucklet is advertised on ClassicCars.com by specialist dealers in Alsip, Illinois.
Like the ad records, Brat stands for All-Terrain Transporter Bi-Drive.
The ad notes that Brat was never sold in Japan; it is an export vehicle only, and that the jumping seat facing back is welded on the spot and has adjustable headrests, seat belts and grab handles.
The Brat for sale is a very good “rust-free Montana vehicle,” the seller noted, adding that he has a 1.8-liter Subaru 1.8-liter engine, 4-speed manual transmission, AM / FM / Cassette audio system, air conditioning, driving lights, adjustable pop-up roof panel and steering column.
Painted in World Rally Blue with dark blugs and gray interiors, custom cargo mattresses / carpets, and golden Enkei wheels.
The odometer shows 216,497 miles, but the vehicle looks neat in many photos that are part of the ad. The asking price is $ 14,900.
