Actually my 1970 subaru 360 was only a few years after that body style and to me looks very cute.

In Japan most cartoons characterize cars as looking like my subaru ladybug.

Old subarus looks nothing like the weirdness that came later.

That car does have the retro look and as a collectable would be fine.

Here in the US parts would be troublesome as well as registration. The DOT doesn't seem to like those cars much.

with the advances the auto tranny has made in the past few decades the difference in this car with an auto and a manual are likely minimal. I'd love to have one of these, but that is a ton of money for such an older small car.
