Classic Register usually focused on original unmodified cars, but this modified Leone Coupe caught our interest, available here on located in Medowie NSW, Australia.

Classic Leone coupes are rare enough in most parts of the world, but this is a particularly special unit which has supposedly had $20,000 invested in modifications, including many aftermarket extras bu most notably the fitting of running gear from a 1994 WRX Impreza. Considering the certified engineering completed and the description of the cars condition, $11,500 seems a fair price to negotiate from.

The Subaru Leone coupe was introduced in the 1979 model year, offered alongside the sedan, coupe, wagon and hatch body styles, and the model is regarded as the predecessor to the Impreza. The styling of most cars gets very subjective when you start to get close to or inside the 1980s, and the lines applied to the Leone are typical of the era, with counterparts such as the Toyota Corona Hardtop having a very similar front end and C-pillar designs (see the example of a 1979 Corona we added to the register some time ago).
