1987 Subaru GL-10 AWD Turbo Wagon!

Are you looking for a do-everything car?  With a turbocharged four cylinder, manual trans and wagon body, this just might be it.  This doesn't have the power of a Passat W8 wagon; but, even at almost thirty years old, this Subaru GL-10 will be much more reliable.

This Subie appears to be in amazing shape all around and, with 123K miles on the odometer, is hardly broken in.  One just has to hope that some of those miles have been accumulated in recent years such that the car hasn't been sitting too long.   Don't expect massive thrills from the 115 HP turbo four, but do expect to do anything you want and go almost anywhere while taking just about any cargo along for the ride.

Classic Subaru wagon lines don't give away the all-wheel drive, turbo, manual fun hiding underneath.

It would be a shame to mount any other wheel on this car.  The utilitarian steelies are perfect!

Note the faded "4WD Turbo" decal.  There are more decals on the side.  It was the 80s, after all...

Interior is plush for its age and appears to be in good shape overall, with some wear to the driver's seat.  Manual shifter is a welcomed sight.

Here's the slightly worn driver's seat.

You're damn right this car has a digital dash!  It might even work...

The fancy trip computer appears to control the clock screen in the shot below.  Also note the double-DIN head unit opening.  You can fit modern, phone-enabled technology - Android Auto and Apple CarPlay - in this car!

Here's the "trip computer".  This is impressive for its age.

Here's the shot that matters!

Yugo drivers will find the spare wheel location familiar.

  1. Has there ever been another car that had an "alarm" setting for the trip computer?
    What does it do?
    Do you pull over to take a nap and set the alarm to wake you?
    Whatever....it's awesome.

  2. I don't think I've ever seen that feature. We need an owner testimonial!

    1. Yep. I had a 1988 GL 10 4wd turbo wagon. It had a full monochrome digital dash and ride height control. You could push a button to raise the suspension and it had push button 4wd. It had a picture of the turbo spinning with little wings expanding out of it when you were on boost. Mechanical soft touch cassette player means it took it gently instead of snapping into place. It evan had a AT Temp warning light too. It showed a side profile and above profile pic of car on dash showing which doors were open and if you were in lift mode. Far ahead of its time.
