here is kijiji link.......http://calgary.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-cars-trucks-price-drop-1995-Subaru-Impreza-wrx-sti-555-wagon-27xxx-km-W0QQAdIdZ253874406     I have dropped the price if sold within a week...I want it gone before I go to haiti on a missions trip on the 18th!

For sale is a stock manual 1995 subaru STI verII 555 Wagon sports blue. It is in great condition! the paint is pretty well flawless, the interior is awesome, the engine block has the red sti paint on it, no chips or signs of wear. This is incredible as any other sti i have seen the paint is chipped off almost entirely. this attests to the very low km. This car is 1 of 100 that were made, and with only 27,500 km it is very unique to say the least.
Very rare car.
Here is a bit of information on some new features of  the v2 STI 555 edition:
-275 hp symmetrical awd or course
-red induction manifolds
-4:11:1 final drive
-inter cooler water spray
-red engine block
-sti seats/embroidery
-power adjustable / foldable mirrors
-kenwood stereo
-A/C, power locks
-better sounding stock muffler than the wrx
-sports blue paint
-stock rally style mudflaps
-Gold speedline Electra S alloys
-if you need more information about the car let me know and I can provide more technical details.
-It is completely stock, and the 27,500 km is all original and documented.
-I am asking 13,500 obo for the car. I am anticipating it will sell pretty quick, message me if you are interested!

T
pictures on kijiji ad...i can get a bunch more pictures if desired.




thanks

Thread has been cleaned up, with somewhat relevant info extracted:

I've got one of these coming too, which is unreal considering there were only 100 made!

there will actually be 3 in Canada of the wagon (of 100) and 2 of the sedan (of 500)



The OP can promote his own FS thread.

Please do not clutter FS threads with bro-banter or car lust.

I have seen a few of these limited production runs but only 100 made "may" be misleading.  But reading more the 555 model only 1000 units are made.

This is info from my research.  If the VIN plate says XXX/100 it may very well mean during that production month the car is XXX and next month another batch of 100 are made.

Soruce from Wiki.

Japanese-spec
Version I (10/92 – 08/94) - GC8A/B

The first STi was known simply as WRX STi (there was no "version" moniker added to the name until the version II). 100 Imprezas per month were produced starting from February 1994. In March, production was stabilized to 100 STis a month. It had 250 PS (184 kW; 247 bhp) at 6500 rpm and 31.5 kgf·m (309 N·m, 228 ft·lbs) at 3500 rpm and weighed 1230 kg (2,710 lb). Before the STi, the highest trimline of the Impreza was the WRX and the WRX RA, first manufactured in November 1992. This version of the STi was the only version where the standard cars were taken at the end of the assembly line and replaced by STi parts. After this version, the standard STi was built alongside the WRX on the production lines.

The WRX STi Type RA (marketing has made usage of the RA acronym in various ways; Record Attempt[6] is the current usage. "R = Racing, A = Group A, FIA the racing class the WRC Impreza competes in" has also been confirmed by Subaru of Japan; the correspondence can be seen on the discussion board for this article) produced 275 PS (202 kW; 271 bhp) and 32.5 kgf·m (319 N·m, 235 ft·lbs) of torque. This version of the WRX STi was a stripped out car that had no sound-deadening, radio or air-conditioning. It came sparsely equipped as it was to be sold to racing teams that would throw out the cheap parts for racing parts. This version of the WRX came with a Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD). This device was an electromechanical differential that could lock the differential. The DCCD would be beneficial to people who used it in various rally conditions.

Version II (09/94 – 08/96) - GC8C
The regular STi's engine output stood at 275 PS (202 kW; 271 bhp) and 32.5 kgf·m (319 N·m, 235 ft·lbs) of torque. This was the year that STi started painting the intake manifold red. The car weighed 1,240 kg (2,734 lb) and had gold wheels like those on the World Rally Championship Impreza.

The V-limited STi edition was produced. It was a limited edition that was often used to celebrate a Manufacturer or Driver title award to Subaru's World Rally Team. The interior is colored blue on the seat inserts and carpeting. The WRX Type RA STi received a radio and air-conditioning in the V-limited form. 1000 WRX STi Version 2 V-limited were produced. 555 (the cigarette brand that was the premier sponsor of the Subaru World Rally Team and became synonymous with the Impreza WRC livery) WRX Type RA STi Version 2 V-limited were produced.

This is a discussion that interests me greatly.  I can tell you that it is confusing, because it appears much information is contrary.  The 555 edition is certainly limited.  It was announced on August 20th, 1995, and began production in September.  There were 500 Sedans made, and 100 wagons.  This is confirmed by The Impreza book by Brian Long, WRX Vs. Evo by Huw Evans and Subaru themselves in the original brochure.  See it here: http://www.subaru-impreza.org/downloads/1995-sti.pdf
Notice that on the first page, on the left side, looking at the japanese text body above the black band ("Pure Sports Wagon/Pure Sports Sedan WRX") you'll note characters that show WRX STi Ver II 555 / more characters 500/ more characters 100
This is also confirmed by many all across the globe through the internet - but, it gets confusing.  For example: http://www.catherineandken.co.uk/sti/car.html

Many mistake the V-Limited versions with the 555 edition.  The V-Limited was announced slightly before the end of the year in 1995 and begun production in February of 1996(I believe - just doing the memory thing right now).  The numbers issue pops up with the V1 STi's (Of which I was fortunate to own one of) in which they made around 1000.  My research points to 1200 that I can confirm based on number plates that I've tabulated.  My vehicle had a plate that said 88/100 April 1994.  Some had thought that meant only 100 were made, in this case, it meant that 100 were made in that month.  The 555's didn't get a plate.

The short answer is that the V-limited came in WRX and STi form.  The V-limited and 555 editions both had the same special paint code - 53C, so people can mix them up easily - or think they are the same.  The V-Limited had a numbered plate, but the 555 did not (again, I believe).

As the date of manufacture was previous to 1996, this most certainly is a 555 edition wagon, and also is one of 100 ever made.  It is special.

OP - you don't have a roof vent.  I thought that was part of the deal too - but sadly, the wagons didn't get one.

I found a link that will let you preview the section on the 555 car from Brian Long's book.
http://books.google.com/books?id=jntu4dc9984C&printsec=frontcover&dq=Impreza&hl=en&ei=z4a6TIrbMou8sQOUptmPDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false
Look at the last page, second last paragraph - it mentions the 500/100 split.  Oh, page 50.
Page 50 and 51 will tell you much about the VerII STi's.  Page 48 goes over the Type RA STi (ver I)  Page 39 (missing from the preview) starts about the very first STi, but page 40 is there..so still can learn a bit.

I'd expect his and mine will land at the same time, which is to say maybe the middle of the month next month.  It's always a bit of a crapshoot getting a date when the boats come in, then the unloading process/soil/customs/dock release etc...
