2004 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon - Toad Ready

$4,500.00 None Good

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon with approx. 182K miles.  Subaru Java Pearl (black with gold sparkle) paint. 

Reasonably good condition and runs well considering its age but please read the modifications and issues carefully.  This will be a no secrets, no warranty, buy at your own risk sale.

This is NOT your normal TOAD!  It is a sports car that also serves as a toad and may not be suitable for you.  Again - This is sports car!  The ride is harsh and the car is loud.  Your spouse may hate it but it is really fun to drive.

I love this car and have driven it daily for 16 years.  It has been well cared for but driven hard.  Besides normal use, it's been autocrossed (racing through cones in stadium parking lots) and driven many days in non-competitive high speed road-race track events.  I'm selling because I bought a new Subaru WRX and don't need another vehicle hanging around.


  • 5 Speed Manual Transmission / All Wheel Drive
    (MUST be flat-towed - never 2 wheels on a dolly!)

  • Modifed brake, turn & running lights (e.g., diodes added) with front bumper connector for electrical hookup

  • Protected charging circuit to keep toad battery charged

  • Brakes applied signal wire returned to motorhome for optional dash indicator


  • Approximately 182K "normal" miles.  An additional 10K "toad" miles not recorded on the odometer.

  • All Wheel Drive w/5 speed manual transmission

  • 225 hp (stock) turbocharged 4 cyl engine.

  • Small body rust on rear wheel arches on both sides.

  • Right rear wheel well had significant rust-out that I fixed. The repair was done by rebuilding the wheel well with heavy gauge sheet metal welded in. 

  • Driver exterior mirror cracked -- just happened while sitting in the drivewaythis winter!)

  • Driver seat worn but not torn.

  • Timing belt maintenance due

  • I replaced the engine short block (block, crankshaft, pistons, etc.) with a new Subaru short block at 60K miles. (This was necessary following an engine lubrication failure during a track day at Watkins Glen racetrack.)
