I bought one of these in 1979 when they were first introduced. I spent a great deal of time trying to find another one and about 6 years ago found this one. It's the GSL model with 30,500 original miles. The body is about a perfect you could expect for a car that's 32 years old. The hood has been repainted years ago but my guess becuase of rock chips. It's a perfect match. 5spd, carbureted, power windows and power assisted steering. The only flaws are the drivers side leather seat has a small cut in the seat and the bolster has some wear which I tried to show in attached photos. Car runs absolutely perfect. Everything works including the radio and clock. The air conditiong works also but could probably use a recharge..
If you follow these cars, you know they were all built in Japan and were shipped with a special coating in the engine compartment to protect the engine compartment and components. It still has that coating. I live in the suburbs of St. Louis and the car can be seen at my building where I keep my collection of classic cars. I am firm on this price as I just lowered it today.
Some models from the film will fetch top dollar, but without modifications
The Pick of the Day is a rare unmolested 1993 Mazda RX-7 with just 37,000 miles on ist odometer
Although the Mazda RX-7 has never hit its stride as a collector car, enthusiasts know it as an innovative sports car powered by a tiny-yet-powerful rotary engine
There are a few Japanese cars that changed the way we think about small sports cars. The first was the Datsun 240Z, the car that hurried along the demise of the British and Italian sports car brands.
Mazda will show five historic vehicles alongside two 2016 models at the 11th annual Japanese Classic Car Show this weekend in Long Beach, California.
Eighteen of the greatest Japanese sports cars will be on display at the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia as part of a special exhibit, the Best of Japan.
Some Japanese sports cars are gaining leverage with car collectors, but others, not so much. Production models such as Datsun 240Z and Toyota Supra are rising in value and appreciation, and the limited-production Toyota 2000GT regularly hits a million dollars at auction.
This car moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it
