Comments about the car: This 1996 Subaru SVX LSi was purchased new by the current owner. Carfax certified and fully loaded, this SVX is from the final year of production. In perfect running condition, it is black over tan leather, making it arguably the prettiest SVX ever produced. Body is in original, untouched, condition. This was the owner’s second SVX. He bought a black over tan introductory year 1992 model in 1991, the first year the SVX was offered. He then traded it in on this black over tan 1996 model, the final year of production. A pharmacist, he lives on top of a mountain in West Virginia, loves Subarus, and previously had two black on tan Subaru 4 wheel drive, fully loaded XT6’s. This was the fourth of four, all purchased new, traded, and serviced at the local dealer.

Mechanically in virtually perfect condition (exceptions noted below), everything works. Drives straight and strong with no warning lights. Interior in virtually new condition (exceptions noted below). Body and paint all original. 120k miles. Fully loaded LSi version, no options were offered. 3.3 Liter 230 HP 4 speed automatic with manual over-ride. Computer limited to a top speed of 143 MPH. Gorgeous Ebony Pearl (black) with Beige Leather interior. Dealer Maintained. Was just professionally clay barred and fully detailed for the new owner. Timing Belt by dealer at 76,000 miles. AC blows ice cold. Excellent Goodyear Eagle GT 225/50R16 tires. Includes full set of Owners Manuals, three keys (two with remote, one is valet), and the original center console removable cup holder insert. Driven on average 5,161 miles per year.

Sticker Price: $35,495. Purchased new at Jeff Morris Subaru in Charleston, WV on February 27, 1996 by current owner. Clean WV title.

Final year of SVX production. One of only 1,111 sold in 1996. 14,257 total SVX’s were sold between 1991 and 1997.

Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Car Designer of the 20th Century. The Automotive Hall of Fame described him as “arguably the world’s most influential modern automotive designer.” Besides the SVX, he also designed the DeLorean, Lotus Espirit, BMW M1 and 19 Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Maseratis.

A future Collector's Car! See:

1) Road and Track:


Mechanical Issues: 1) Engine runs slightly cool. 2) Factory original rattle occasionally in back left corner.

Interior Issues (see pictures): 1) Left front speaker face is discolored. 2) Plastic handle to move driver’s seat back needs to be reattached. 3) Slight carpet stains here and there. 4) Original front mats not in perfect condition.

Body Issues: The car looks spectacular at 20 feet, but there are 2 small impressions in the left rear corner, and a number of tiny nicks and dimples. I have tried to show all the imperfections as clearly as possible

Asking price: $6,950
