Cool Bantum's '76 Hatch ...

I also own a 1976 Subaru Wagon ( my first Subaru ) ...



Note : See my tag or this link for more photos of existing ...

Sometime ago I had some thoughts on what I could do with it as a project car & came up with this :



& after looking at some other sketch drawings on here recently, thought I'd give it go - and came up with this :



So appart from complete lack of details, this would be a nice 'restoration' project some time in the future ...

Note : The above is not an accurate representation, notice the wipers are back to front ...

Cheers, Bantum ...

Would be interesting to see done but a cutting and welding nightmare to actually get it done.

It would probably be easier just to restore the wagon to its former glory.

I like it. Wouldn't want to try to get it engineered, but I like it...

Looking at the drawings, it looks like you've used the body off the MY hatch and used the front nose and back end off the Ugly model.. this would probably be the easiest way to do it from an engineering point and possibly the cheapest way too.

Another possiblity, as I don't mind the look of front / rear end. Pitty about the odd middle bit ...

Ha not quite, as my intial ideas were to create something unique, a one of a kind ? based on Subaru history for rally cars.

It could also be a 'preceder' to the MY hatch model ...

But what I had thought of mainly it may be possible to cut the 'Leone' wagon up, shorten it a bit & use another model for longer doors, etc.

All varouis options to be considered ...

mr sp 33 has some competition !!

No harm in your graphics taking on the 4 dor wagon to look like a 2 door wagon styling whole thing like two tone, colour of front door extending into rear door, colour coding rear door handle to hide it in door colour.

U used the lime greeny yellow colour of MY, not seen that colour for yonks !

Aw, saw a Foz done in carbon fibre vinyl of two textures the other day - looked awesome but hard to rad the ad text

Coming from an architectural background I had to learn how to draw. However I'm only good at the other stuff, as I haven't done a lot of car drawings + no where as good as mr sp 33 ...

Doesn't hurt to try every now & then ...

It's supposed to be same as the original, but I didn't have the exact match ...

Yeah, was going for that classic rally look too ... !

There are some MY hutchbacks but they're rare as, Getting it engineered and VIV would be an concern because they wouldnt get straight answer until the job is completed and will be a lot of backwards/forwards and long time to get it right. I would restore it as it is.
Cheers
