Default 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited - winter is coming

Name: Stu
Location: Warrenton
Means of contact: PM
Price: $500 OBO... Make me an offer, not looking for trades.

245,756 miles
automatic
2.5l boxer

Description: Winter is coming... and that pretty ride you've been working on is woefully inept in the snow and you know it. That's why you need to buy this thing as a winter beater.

bad stuff:
due for a timing belt, leaking a lot of oil from the front of the engine and there is some noise on the left cams/tensioner at idle (so, replace the seals, timing belt, and tensioner at the same time), oil leak flows across the bottom of the engine and drips on the exhaust manifold (can be smoky when you come to a stop) , inner tie rods are worn and should be replaced... which might be needed before it will pass an inspection, inside edges of the front tires are worn because of this, coolant overflow is cracked so you can't rely on the overflow to tell you your coolant level. last of all, it's been sitting for a while (almost 2 years) so some fluid changes are a good idea. only has am/fm as the cassette deck crapped out. some dents and scrapes (see pictures)

good stuff:
radiator replaced not too long ago, fuel filler tube replaced not long ago (they tend to rust out on these cars), heads machined and head gaskets replaced about 60k miles ago, AC works, heat works, brand new battery, no CEL, even though it's been sitting, it starts right up and drives just fine, cheap.

kbb on one of these in "fair" condition is around $1300, so I'm pricing it under that (even though "fair" means it needs the kind of work that this car needs).

Pictures:






Dent in passenger front bumper from jerk who hit me in a parking lot

scrape on driver front bumper that was there when I bought it

rust bubble above diver rear wheel

scrape driver rear bumper that was actually my fault
