Blue Classic: 1980 Mazda RX-7

The first generation RX-7 (SA/FB built in Japan from 1978 to 1985) was a interesting highlight in the sports car world of the early 80s. The RX-7’s light weight frame was engineered for handling and propelled by a unique engine – the Mazda rotary. Today, you don’t see many around, but this next example looks in really nice shape and the only dubious part is the fact that it is located on a trailer in many of the pictures. Find this 1980 Mazda RX-7 offered for $6,500 in Nashville, TN via craigslist.

I have a 1980 1 owner Mazda rx7 has been in Alabama and Tn all it’s life no rust. Has a brand new 13b Bridgeport motor and is now fuel injected! Car is a blast to drive. Shows 64,000 miles which I believe to be original. Has rx8 seats but I have the factory seats. Asking 65000obo. Will be hard to find another one as clean! I am interested in trades of equal value. But cash is king as I have 7 vehicles and don’t need as many toys!
