Mä meen vittu sinne!
We are doing just that with Impreza's. I have one that will be ready to deliver to customer end of this week. Now, it does NOT have anything other than a cage, but if you are doing Open Light, most of the rest of that is bolt in parts. You can get bolt in seat brackets. Harnesses are easy. Primitive makes skid plates that bolt on. Throw on some Porterfield R4 pads, JVAB struts, set of alloy Legacy 5 spokes and a used set of gravel rally tires and go rally.I was just curious if there is anyone out there who is specializing in buying $500 used cars in decent condition, adding the saftey mods, and then selling it to people who want a low cost of entry into rally. As opposed to the business that take Subarus, put 50k worth of stuff in them.
Maybe open light or G5?
Our builder car is a base 4 door 2.2L 5 speed. Nothing mechanical has been touched other than timing belt and oil pump reseal a few months back when I was daily driving the car. Addition of a roll cage and we had it listed at $4k and had quite a few people interested. Family member wants to pick it up so selling it to him for $3.5k. This allows you to build the car up to the spec you want over time at a minimal initial investment. If you want it ready to rally, plan on more of the 8-12k range.
We also have spec E36 Group 2 options. Builder 92 325i is sitting here acting as my daily driver for now. That one is going to be more like $11-12k ready to rally. That'll be more of a car than an Open Light car however with RWD, LSD, and 220 hp.
