1985 Mazda RX-7
~250k on Chassis, ~50k on rebuilt 12A Rotary Engine
The price is $2500 firm, which is a steal for this awesome car. I no longer have room for it. Look for similar ones on craigslist or ebay for reference.

I owned this car for the last ~8 months. I drove this car ~100 miles daily, commuting from Gwinnett to Georgia Tech, all around atlanta, and back. The only issue the car ever gave was the clutch master cylinder- which I replaced. I also replaced the clutch slave cylinder.

Enkei92's on kumho tires with good tread. Brakes are fresh- 2 months ago.

Carbureted 12A- extremely reliable: If it has gas, it will run.

Rotaries are pretty loud, it has a rare "racing beat" header going to a 2.5" exhaust to a Greddy can. No catalytic converter as this car doesn't need emissions- exempt status. Exhaust shoots fireballs.

Rare front bumper, Chassis in decent condition, No cracks in dashboard, interior is completely bare, no power steering, no AC, no cruise control, no heated seats.

Transmission shifts perfect, Old skool Nardi shift knob, nice clutch, GSL-SE LSD rear end with 4.11 gear

Tokico HP Gas struts aka "Blues" with stiffer aftermarket springs (unknown brand)

Kenwood CD/MP3 Player with Aux input

-Reliable, Stiff chassis, Rare.
-Good Motor, Good Tires, Good Transmission, Good Clutch, Good Brakes.

-The body is a little rough and needs paint, but I think it looks good as is.
-Fuel Gauge doesn't work. Needs that little floating thing, but it came broken and I never cared enough to fix it. I used the trip timer.
-Driver side rear brake rotor is warped, but I didn't get it machined when changing rear brake pads. Brakes work perfectly, but just machine it next time the brake pads need change.

Just send me a message with your number and any questions and I will call you. I mainly want a quick NO BS sale.
