My neighbour is trying to sell one of her cars and I thought it might interest someone here.

She had it converted to LPG in 2012 as she was commuting a few miles to work every day. It‘s been off the road since last August because it developed a fault and she‘s had 1 valve replaced, together with the head gasket, timing belt, plugs and leads. The work was done by her son who‘s a mechanic and it‘s running again now but seems to be overheating.
He‘s not really got the time (or inclination) to work on it and now she wants it out of the way. It‘s SORNED currently and only MOT‘d until next month but it was only used for 3 months since the last MOT and she can‘t be bothered to re-MOT it (even though she knows it worth more with a decent ticket on it).
She thinks it might be of interest to someone who‘s in to Subarus (she‘s got 2) and doesn‘t mind getting their hands dirty. I‘ve not had a really good look under the bonnet and I don‘t know that much about the conversion on it (but don‘t think it‘s got Flashlube on it) but the overall condition of the car is pretty good.
She‘s got more photos she could e-mail anyone who‘s interested and there‘s a few below. I don‘t know if the chunk missing from the valve is a sign of VSR or just one of those things that happens (and has happened on 3 of my own cars). I‘ve tried to nail her down on a price but have given up, basically if you‘re interested, give her a call. She knows quite a bit about the car so can answer any questions and if you want to make her an offer for what you think it‘s worth, she may very well say yes.
You can contact Kay on, the car is located in Tamworth (nice and central in the UK)
