For Sale: 1985 Mazda RX-7 in O'Fallon, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to offer this one-owner 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL on consignment marketed with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. 1985 was the last year Mazda offered the "tear-drop" RX-7 chassis that offered Rotary power for the first time in a Mazda product. This rare ownership opportunity is headlined by the revolutionary 'Wankel' Rotary engine. The Rotary engine defied the norm with its design by featuring a triangular rotor that revolves around the combustion chamber instead of traditional pistons, resulting in a much smaller displacement. On top of this, the engine was so light and compact that it could be mounted behind the front axle and meant the RX-7 could achieve a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Following the initial success of the 12A engine, Mazda continued to offer it in the 1985 model year such as this vehicle. Estimated horsepower was an even 100 which on a small, nimble car is a healthy number for some high rev line fun. Paired to this peppy motor is a responsive 5-speed manual transmission that had a clutch swap in 2006 according to the seller's records. The car comes in its original Black paintjob that has held up well over the course of its life although there are some small rock chips on the front end from highway driving. Aluminum alloy sport wheels give this Mazda some serious curb appeal! Inside this RX-7 is an equally nice place to be with Burgundy velour bucket seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, full gauge set and storage areas in the center console and glove box. Entertainment and comfort is covered by air conditioning, power windows/mirrors, a sunroof and the original Dolby AM/FM stereo with cassette player that is a total 80's throwback on its own! The good news for perspective buyers of an RX-7 is that prices for these probable future collectibles remain affordable. Now is your chance to pick this usable, practical classic for a great price!
