1998 Subaru Impreza 22B
We are very proud to offer, what is without doubt, one of the nicest original Subaru Impreza 22B’s available.
We have had a large number of Impreza 22B’s through our doors, be it within our showroom where we have had many lovely 22B’s including a 270 mile example, or within our workshop where we have restored multiple 22B’s for customers to a very high level.
This example is a superb offering, from top to bottom. One of the best examples we have ever seen. One for the serious collector.
Being a Grade 4.5A with very low miles, full Japanese history, we expected it to tick all the boxes.
Upon inspection, it was clear this car was exactly the type of high standards we work hard to uphold & so the car was purchased.
A single stage machine polish has been carried out & here we have the vehicle ready for the new owner.
In terms of paperwork, the car has all original 22B booklets, un-used spare key, superb Japanese service history, the original 180kmh speedo, the original toolkit & an Japanese workshop manual.
We have also of course documented the service work we have carried out since arrival in to the UK.
Body & Paintwork
The wheels are still in original finish & the bodywork paint is in great condition having benefited from a professional enhancement detail session as part of our sales preparation.
Badges are original, as are all trims, all glass & all lights.
The door glass is free of the usual scratching which most three door Impreza’s suffer from.
No damage, no dings, just completely as Subaru intended.
The 22B to many people is much more than just a car, it is an absolute icon of the era & it is not hard to see why when looking at one in the flesh, the presence that a 22B has is unlike anything else, especially when it is in such condition as this example.
Interior & Trim
All seats are in tremendous condition, with all bolsters maintaining the original shape with no signs of wear.
Likewise, the door cards, centre console, trims & switchgear all present very well indeed.
This example really is a step above the usual ‘nice examples’.
The only change is a commonly fitted, STi 280kmh speedo (original is with the car & documented).
Total mileage is 11,102miles/17,866km’s.
Running gear & the underbody of the car are in sublime original condition, showing all the original factory QC & Stamp markings.
The chassis is without any corrosion, absolutely stunning.
Whilst the car was undergoing a service & safety check over in our workshop, we also treated the car to a cavity wax to ensure longevity of such an example.
