About the Subaru BRAT The Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter was created by Subaru in the late 1970 s fromtheir earlier 4WD station wagon model for the US market. Powered by a flat-four engine rangingfrom 1.6 to 1.8 liters in displacement, this pickup had the unique feature of having jump seatswelded to the truck bed, which allowed it to be imported as a car instead of a truck. One of thecar s more famous owners was former US President Ronald Reagan, whose red BRAT is restoredand displayed at his former residence in California.
