BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
1979 Rx7 Mazda - this is a nice car and worthy of restoring
for 2 great reasons. 1, its always been in Az and has no
rust or rot anywhere on the body, frame or floors. Also,
the paint is original, so theres no bondo or previous repairs
under the paint you see in the pics. 2nd reason, its never
been modded and or turned into a ricky racer mobile. Bone
stock under the hood (other then the drop in K&N air filter)
all the way back to the stock dual tip muffler. The stock
radio like most has been swapped out yrs ago, yes. Not sure
why the car was parked about 5 yrs ago, but when we got
It, I disconnected the fuel line from the tank (to keep any
old gas if any was in the tank) from entering the carb. Took
some fresh gas and poured it down the carb, hit the key and
it fired right up and idled, and did so for as long as we kept
spraying small amounts of fuel down the carb. That being
said, it did smoke some. It was puff out some smoke about
every 5 to 8 seconds, while keeping it running for about a
minute. Water in the radiator and oil look okay. Its going
to need the clutch and brakes bleed too. That also being said, while moving the car around the yard, I noticed that the rear wheels didnt want to turn too easily. E-brake is off but not sure why the brakes were dragging in the back. For now I just took the rear drums off to make moving the car around easier and for transporting. Please read more details about the car below:


Check out the pics and more info below...thanks
This is a great project car worth restoring.
Most of these cars got modded back in the day, meanwhile
this one avoided that mess and for the most part just
kept stock, like the day it left the factory.


DONT BID UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUNDS IN HAND, apparently some people
who use ebay arent smart enough to understand the rules.
So if you have under 10 feedbacks, Ill be emailing you if you bid to
make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid.
Up for Auction: LOW FAIR RESERVE !!! NO idea of the actual mileage of the
truck and or drivetrain.
These cars are getting harder to find esp in this condition
that are still affordable to most buyers.
WANNA BUY IT NOW ? SURE, shoot me a fair offer


DRIVETRAIN: the engine runs with no weird noises, but again
it was smoking some. Cant text the clutch or trans at the moment.
Brakes will need attention, mostly the rear. This is a factory AC
equipped car too, and all is accounted for and in place, but not sure
if its charged. Its a project car of course. Ill try to at least bleed the
clutch this week just to help some. While we had it running, I could
hear the oem E fuel pump running under the car, but not sure if
its working and or the tank is empty. It does have 4 new Bosch plugs
installed.

INTERIOR: take a look, for the most parts its very complete
and original. Az has been hard on most of it as you can see
in the pics It will need some resto of course. All the glass
is good and the Doors all work, no rot on the doors. The interior does
have some heat and sun damage from being an AZ car, which is
noticable in the pics below. I have one key for the car and it works
in the doors and ignition. No key for the hatch yet, but I went inside
and popped the lock so I could open it temporarily. Ill try to get a
key made for that this week if I have time. The window tint is old
and the flames you see on the rear quarter windows is in the tint.

EXTERIOR:the body is in really nice shape. The original
color and paint is what you see in the pics. Now its a 40+ yr old
Az car, and the paint is flat and dry. The only real dent thats obvious
is on the front nose that I noticed. But the hood functions fine.It has to me what looks like better then normal wear for a car of this age now.
Headlights work at they are suppose to and I did see the LR
taillight lens is damaged. Sunroof works. You could maybe wetsand
the existing paint and buff it for a better finish. Check out all the body
line gaps, they are clean like the day it was built.


SUSPENSION:the suspension looks normal and very original
for its age. Factory height. Again, all looks intact. Rolls and
steers fine, sitting on some factory 14" correct OEM alloy rims.
Falken tires are actually in decent shape. No Rust or rot under the
car making it super easy to work on. Keep in mind the we took
the rear drums off the car so it would roll easier too. Rear Struts andhave been replaced and all 4 corners feel okay.


Check out ALL the pics below ----->

it may take a full minute for them all to load ifyou have a
slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll
bar on the right side.
The Az sw gets about 9" of rain a year and the dry desert
climate preserves metal, doesnt rot it.

There you have it, probably The BEST represented Mazdas
shown here on Ebay.

Shows you all the good as well as any bad, hope you them
We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars.
People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale
and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats
paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks.
Having as much as the original steel on a restored car
speaks volumes.
Also, if you buy a car thats been "restored", who knows what
surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are
fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.

Email us with ANY questions before you bid please

Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. We show you as
much feasibly possible via pics.
Dont let auctions withlittle to no pics try to fool you.
If they cant take the time to take pics of areas under the car
they are selling, maybe its not the best car to buy esp
long distance. Our auctions are very detailed.
