Up for sale in the Orlando showroom is this wicked little 1973 Mazda RX-2. Introduced in 1970 the RX-2, or Capella as it was marketed in Japan, was Mazda’s intermediate alternative to their smaller models. Offering a range of motors in not quite midsize, not quite compact coupe and sedan body styles, the RX-2 was popular with families and singles alike. The RX-2’s slew of engine choices included 4 cylinders from 1.5 – 1.8 liters or a Wankel twin rotary. RX-2s fitted with the Wankel Rotary were marketed more like a sports car and fitted with a 5 speed manual they sure drove like one too! This fine 1973 example has been modernized with a brand new 13B rotary engine producing around 130HP connected to a 5 speed manual allowing this car to rev to moon and back! The restoration on this car was done in 2012 and included a beautiful white paint that only a classic Japanese car can pull off so well. Along with the brand new engine the car received a full air conditioning system and a new radiator. This sporty little Japanese coupe is ready for a new owner to wind it through the gears! Options include AC, AM radio, CD player, power brakes, power steering, seat belts, vinyl interior and racing wheels wrapped in radial tires.
