Description:

1983 Mazda RX-7 GS


1983 Mazda RX-7 rolling chassis with a ton of parts in boxes and in the car after Spring cleaning of garage. Chassis has 204,000 miles on it.The actual rolling chassis will need a good engine hood, as dead "once was grey metallic" paint, ront of driver's side front fender got hit, mall ding on rear deck, ut has straight sheetmetal, therwise. Under-the-carriage area has been cleaned and detailed from the firewall back to the gas tank area. Modifications and special parts already done to the car include:
  • Custom $550 glass sunroof with custom fabricated brackets which are powdercoated metallic blue and are triangle-shaped. Glass was tinted w/o those brackets installed.
  • FB Sunroof/Moonroof panel holding cover to hold the above if completely removed from the car, n very good condition.
  • Custom $800 Wizard aluminum radiator tabbed specifically to hold a 17" Derale electric fan.
  • $900 custom painted 12A rotary engine long block, ery strong, o idea if ported, hough...carburetor is toast, ould need rebuild for sure.
  • Custom Front Mounted Oil Cooler set up...."beehive" cooler on top of the engine has been pulled on this car, ll coolant hoses then reworked - the oil lines use BLACK aluminum AN hose ends and black braided hose, n extremely light set up unlike stainless steel braided hose. The appearance from the front of the car is that it has an intercooler or is smiling.
  • Solid FB 5 speed manual transmission.

  • Custom dyed FC seats installed but color has faded on the blue sections and driver seat has one crack on the left side of it now.
  • Sony stereo headunit, R-C8200, lready installed.
  • Interior was gutted then interior floor panels were coated with spray insulation and then covered with thermal barrier pads to isolate the cabin from heat and noise way above what the factory intended. A "channel" was left open for all the stereo RCA cords coming from the headunit going to an area behind the seats for EQ's and amplifiers.
  • Front carpets are black and in GREAT condition.
  • Custom cut floor mats.
  • Uber rare 15" Weds Autobahn rims, op surfaces have had the clear coat removed and sport the rough polish raw aluminum look now, ith black paint in the webs.

  • Door panel coverings shot BUT the manual regulators have been cleaned and greased (synthetic) and are crazy easy to work now...

There is also a spare FB rear center panel. It's the curved gloss black plastic decorative piece between the rear tail lights, n very good shape. The rear area behind the seats has had the sheetmetal cover cut for a project I never completed in the car. Thus, his sale includes an uber rare aftermarket rear seat complete with the seat belts. The pieces will need to be sandblasted and painted again but it's all there. I was going to cut that aftermarket seat in half and then get it reupholstered to make this Mazda RX-7 a three seater. The other side would have been dedicated to the amplifiers and capacitors for the sound system planned but never executed for this car.
Finally, tems included with this sale but not actually in the car are:
  • A complete rear end, rom another 1983 RX-7 but with the posi differential and disc brake rear options.
  • A complete 12A long block, he original 204k miles rotary engine that was in the vehicle. It smoked a little bit on start up but all the smoke went away once the engine was warm...it lost compression in rear rotor, as running when it happened, imped home and shut it down, ulled it, itting around ever since in my garage. I have another complete engine already, o this great rebuilder 12A engine is being sold with the car.
