Description for Mazda RX-7 1988

I bought this car in 2014 with 74,570 miles. It was garaged up until i bought it and since then has been in my driveway w/ no garage. Now has 88,909. so I put on about 3K/year for 5 years - mostly highway miles. Clear MA title.

This car is fun to drive and even with out a turbo, is pretty fast!


>Starts right up – no issues - rotary engine is in great condition


>New battery and oil and filter change in April 2019 at 88,624


> All electrical items are working with no issues (alarm, lights, high beams, retractable headlights, wipers, washer fluid jets, etc)


>(2) new sumitomo tires bought at 83,977 – (2) other still (bridgestone) have good tread on them.


>Includes convertible “boot” cover - may look black in pix, but really is dark grey.


> Includes and aftermarket car cover


>A/C blows cold


>Convert top in good condition


>Original window sticker and most repair invoices from 2003 - 2019 are included in paperwork.


Disclosure of known issues:

>Needs entire exhaust system including y/pipe and both mufflers. – there is NO system left on this car - So, it does NOT have an inspection sticker. I believe that this is the only reason why this hasn't passed inspection, so be prepared to put one on before you legally drive.


>Headrest speakers are not working


>CD and cassette are intermittent, but radio works ok.


> As in virtually all RX-7 verts of this age, the seats, especially the driver's are still usable but need some TLC.


>Front passenger quarter panel was badly repaired by body shop and then badly repainted twice.


>Hood has lots of scratches and there is a large ding on the driver' side quarter panel where it meets the hood.


>Car has a bunch of scratches all over - I tried my best to get pix, but its hard with a black car on a sunny day!


> Missing three BBS Mazda wheel caps ) – two are in the trunk.


> Had a small intermittent leak behind the driver's side seat, but I have been unable to find it's origin.


> Carpet behind drivers side seat has a few 'burn' marks.



So mechanically, this is a great care except for missing exhaust system. Cosmetically this car will need some work (if you care - doesn't not impede the performance at all!)


I have had many RX-7s over the years, but am by no means an expert ! Just a fan of this coveted 2nd gen models. I have done my best to describe the issues and condition. All pictures are part of the description.


Car is currently covered in a driveway in Newton, Ma. ready for sale.
