Shortly after the car found its way online, it was quickly picked up by the guys over at Jalopnik. At first glance, you could be excused for thinking the car has never been driven for it has been so well taken care of. However, it actually has 216,000 miles on the clock which is a testament to how well it has been cared for over the years.
The seller purchased the car 14 months ago and put 2,500 miles on it during his ownership and during this time, invested roughly $6,000 into it in a bid to ensure it drove just like it would have when it was new. Parts that were replaced include the struts, control arms, bushings, brakes, clutch, timing belt, water pump, tires, shifter bushings, and speakers. The car has been garaged its entire life, hence why the paint looks as good as it does.
Speaking about the Legacy with Jalopnik, the seller said that the original owner had the car for 28 years and then donated it to a community college. It is not just the exterior of the car that looks superb but also the interior that is clad in tan-colored materials and certainly gives off those 1990s vibes.
The car was listed for $6,800 and writing on the Craigslist auction after the sale, the owner says he received three solid offers at the asking price but he ultimately decided to sell it to Subaru of America that intend on placing it in their private collection in Camden, New Jersey. In its new home, the car will rest in a climate-controlled environment and only be driven to car shows and other events.
