Just a few days ago, we brought you images of a bizarre Dodge Dakota sporting the front and rear fascias of a Charger. Now, we have stumbled upon another weird pickup truck from the same company, Massachusetts-based Smyth Performance, built around the Subaru WRX.
The images of the silver Subaru WRX depict a hawk eye-generation model that’s been converted into a pickup truck. It’s unclear if the WRX in question started out life as either a sedan or a wagon model but either way, we suspect the process of turning it into a pickup wouldn’t have been easy.

For starters, the roof has been cut and the rear seats have been removed to make way for a bed which, by the way, looks quite generously sized.

This isn’t the only Subaru WRX that’s been converted into a pickup thanks to Smyth Performance. There’s also a blue, bug-eye example in the United States complete with a set of flared wheel arches. We happen to think both WRX pickup conversions look pretty neat and while the owners could have difficulty selling them if ever needed, owning a WRX pickup is certainly one way to stand out.
Smyth Performance isn’t the only one to have transformed the WRX into a pickup. Back in 2016, Australian YouTubers Mighty Car Mods built their own WRX pickup based on a wagon version of the bug-eye generation. That car was fittingly dubbed the ‘Subarute’ and used in a series of challenges against the guys from Roadkill.
