Exact model ??


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have recently purchased a 1997 version 3 WRX STI impreza type R. 2 door. Gc8d2dd.

It has the 555 seats but what I want to know is, is my car actually 1 of only 555?

Hi, thanks for your reply. It's sonic blue 74f. No it doesn't have the plaque nor the commemorative badge on boot. This is why I'm confused. It's deffo not a p1 as it's imported from japan. And chin spoiler etc etc is different. It has the dccd. I really want it to be a special one but there's so many different imprezas out there!! I just wanna exactly what it is I have parked outside :)

+1 for 555's being darker blue and having a plaque/boot sticker .

Don't think I've seen a 2door 555 all the 555's I've seen have been saloons (might have seen a wagon with the graphics but unsure if it was a true 555).

I think most type r's had dccd .

V3 sti type r's are a lovely motor anyways and in most people's eyes it will be a bit special ......

Ahmm pics pls [emoji4]

3rd that was darker  and also think it was a 4 door we have a member on here with one. Didn't it have a special set of alloy's too like the prodrive do ?


I will have a look for the picture of the 555 on here he helped Hails with her wedding car :)


long time ago being sold

Hi everyone and thank you for your replies.

The paint code is 74f which I thought was sonic blue

but I could be wrong!

The car is imported from japan so it's not a p1

as shown in the picture from new era.

I believe it was the first of the 2 doors...It has the 555

seats with the red shoulder pieces. But no other 555

markings. I will try and upload some pictures!

Thanks for your help guys, either way she is LOVELY

to drive :)

I must admit from the picture she does look lovely and a worthy buy I do like the 2 doors been tempted for a few years to get one myself and do the hole 22b look  


From a quick look it does show that that code was used on the 555 also on the P1's but there can be different versions in colour 

The Jap 555 car I've seen use a colour code 53c but that might be just because of the year and is also a 4 door with the main code on the vin GC8C4ED so almost the same as your's I know I've put a Japaneses description thing somewhere I will look for it   :)
