CroweSport BC Legacy

Recommended Posts

What does the ClubSub community know about this Kiwi gem? 

 

Crowe Sport took a few NZ new 91 GLX Legacy's and did more than just put a nice body kit on them I'm guessing, but what exactly?

Is Crowe Sport a dealer there?
Nice cars.


Yea, Trevor Crowe owns a Subaru dealership in Christchurch, which is in the middle of the South Island of NZ. Back in the early '90s he somehow came into posession of about 60-70 NZ new legacy's, so he decided to do something special with them. The end result is what you see in the pic... 
There was two versions, the CSE2 and CSE3. I'm not really sure what the differences were, but before buying the car we managed to get hold of Trevor and asked him a few questions. After describing the car to him he reckoned it was probably one of the higher spec models that they released, as they were all different. So yea, this car is exactly the same as it was when Crowe Sport finished with it, no further mods have been done at all... 

I'll try to get some more pics taken and uploaded on the weekend so you's can have a closer look 8)

Thanks Joker. A mate just bought one, were going to pick it up in the weekend, needs a bit of work but will be a good resto project.

So we picked up the Crowesport yesterday, was a good road trip.

Quite an interesting car so far, has a unique looking frame number, kind of suggests they were all a specific production run for Crowesport.

If you are after more info on the car I would suggest calling Crowesport directly. Trevor is usually around and would probably be keen to talk about this car. Depending on how much he can remember about it. Hes a great guy to talk to and very helpful.

What would the Crowesport cars sell for?  I have a 1992 CSE 2, original condition, still going well at 350kms :)

Ooh good Q

 

As a tidy Non Turbo Legacy with wof & reg? $1000-$1500?

 

as a collector car? 3-5k? but don't get your hopes on my figures they may be wildy out +/- as I've never bought a car worth more than 1500 in the last 15 years 

 

up if you $1 reserve it on TM 'might' be the true way of getting 'what it's worth'

 

you could ask on the BC facepage group here too : https://www.facebook.com/groups/200340879977390/?ref=nf_target&fref=nf
