Sleek, sporty, quick, and distinct, the 1988 Mazda RX-7 is a rising star in the world of Japanese classics. And this is a one-owner coupe that's running a younger replacement motor. So it's great to see you can get a loaded and respected classic for such an obtainable price.
Arctic Silver Metallic is a color with timeless appeal, and in fact, the second-gen RX-7 coupe is all about providing everlasting appeal. The long hood with flat front end, well-defined fenders, and fastback rear will always be in good company. In fact, Mazda looks like they borrowed a few styling cues from Porsche. This coupe has been enjoyed like a driver's machine should, but the right respect over a one-owner lifetime means you also see the right care and investments. That's why the paint was given a partial respray later in life to still give a nice gloss today. It really has an awesome look with the distinct 14-inch factory alloys, attractive black rub strip that encircle the car, and the way the sunroof looks like a spoiler when you open this up to the world.
The sea of blue continues inside. The carpeting, door panels, dash, and essentials have the feeling of originality. Even the dome light still works. So you get to see some interesting details, like the multi-tone cloth inserts in the seats. You'll slip into the comfy leather bucket seat and grab the sporty three-spoke steering wheel. Your heart will begin beating a bit faster as you watch the red-faced gauges begin to dance. The tach is prominently the center - another nod to Porsches. But more than just a pure sports machine, the RX-7 is great for the grand tour. In fact, the center stack still has the factory air conditioning control and radio. These will need servicing, but the sale already comes with an aftermarket radio that's ready to install.
The RX7's real calling card was the revolutionary two-rotor Wankel engine. The odometer reflects the body's actual mileage on this one-owner car, but the motor was actually replaced only about 10k miles ago. It may be listed as a 1.3-liter but that's deceiving. It has a compact size that gives you a better center of gravity, but the special rotary setup has the kind of detonation and power of your other favorite Japanese sports cars of the era like the 300ZX and the Supra. And unlike those, they don't get to rev as high or feel as smooth. The full package makes for a great grand touring classic. After all, the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, fully independent suspension, well-balanced weight distribution, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brake package combine to offer the ideal mixture of performance and comfort.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet, service records, service manuals, receipts, and some extra components. You even have a car bra and full car cover. This is the distinct and affordable coupe that loves the open road. So it's time to grab an affordable deal while you can. Call today!!!
