For Sale: 1985 Mazda RX-7 in Catharpin, Virginia

Vehicle Description

I am the 2nd owner of this great car, having purchased it from my neighbor and original owner back in June 1998. I have made many modifications to the car to improve handling, acceleration, reliability, esthetics, etc. The addition of the MSD 6 ignition system alone significantly improved starting the car under both cold and hot engine conditions...a known issue with rotary engines. The car comes with both the removable steel and glass sunroofs. The car has 100227 original miles and the internal make up of the engine has not been modified. I also have kept all the original parts, including the original RX-7 Wheels with Michelin Metric all season 185/70/13 tires, that I have removed from the car should someone want to restore to original condition.
