While traveling through Nara, Japan last week I saw what appeared to be a white GGB STI wagon – more to come when I get the pictures off the big camera. But this got me burning up my international data plan on researching hallmarks of a “true” STI wagon. That led me to this advertisement for a used GGB with the very rare Freeway Dolphin body kit.
Freeway Dolphin is a company that specializes in wagons or “estates” and includes parts for Legacy wagons and Nissan Stagea wagons and some others. Now that the “Levorg” – new JDM model that is essentially a WRX station wagon – has essentially become the national car of Japan (true story) it makes sense to have a business based around wagons. Though Subaru Technica International has been teasing Subaru enthusiasts with a “STI Sport” model Levorg, after 15 years the last full STI wagon was the Bugeye GGB seen here.
Even back in the day I never really saw any pictures of the Dolphin kit on any cars – I’m guessing it wasn’t a top seller as it is kind of dated looking – like a second-gen Legacy kit – by even model year 2002 standards. Still rare and interesting to know is out there. For me this is I think even the first time that I’ve gotten a good look at the full kit! But with as few wagon-specific kits as there are …
