Default 1985 Mazda RX-7 GS

Up for sale is my 1985 Mazda RX-7 GS. It has 137,xxx miles (less than 6,000 miles a year).



It's in pretty incredible shape for an almost all original 24 year old car. The paint and body are completely original and so is the interior (with the exception of the floor mats and upper door panels). There are a few door dings, but nothing that couldn't be removed by a paintless dent guy in a few minutes.

In the last 5000 miles, the following work has been done:
  • new tires
    new front rotors and pads
    new rear shoes
    turned rear drums
    new door seals
    new window seals
    new hatch seal
    Sony CD player
    Infinity Kappa speakers (with new wiring to radio)
    window tint
    electric cooling fan in place of clutch fan
    new spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor button
    Mobil1 synthetic fluid throughout (except engine oil)
    brand new battery installed last week
    new clutch slave cylinder

Also a couple upgrades have been added to make it run a little better:





The car has power brakes and factory manual steering. The steering wheel is worn, but factory replacements are fairly inexpensive (< $50). There also is some play in the steering shaft (in and out) that I haven't gotten around to repairing, but it doesn't affect the driveability of the car. The car originally had A/C but was removed by the previous owner. I have all the original components to the system with brand new seals, it's just a matter of installing it. I preferred not to have it, so I never installed it.

We recently found out my wife is pregnant, so I now have the need for a daily driver with a little more room (read: backseat), so this one needs to go.

$3900 OBO

It's posted on there as well. With the new addition to the family coming, I'd like it to sell fairly soon.

Almost exactly what I purchased for my first car, except mine was completely stock, blue in color, and an auto.

Guys, please don't post here unless your interested in purchasing the car. Save the thread crapping and useless posts for somewhere else.
