Rally Classic: 1988 Mazda 323 GTX

The Mazda 323 was a pretty forgettable economy car sold in America based on the Japanese Mazda Familia, but there was an exception. Mazda sold an all-wheel-drive GTX version that put some rally performance into the light chassis and many had been turned into rally racers over the years. But today, we’ve got a stock one. Find this 1988 Mazda 323 GTX offered for $8000 in Turlock, CA. Tip from Rock On!

1988 Mazda 323 GTX. One of 1,200, and most have been destroyed in amateur rally. This car is a survivor, and is an important piece of motorsport history. Water pump, oil pump, clutch, and timing belt replaced less than 5,000 miles ago. Car has paint imperfections and aged interior pieces consistent with a car of it’s age, or perhaps better. Mechanically, it’s in great condition, it would make a a great project car, or a fun daily driver. Included in sale is an extra transmission and a set of rally wheels with gravel tires, both purchased by previous owner for unfulfilled plans of turning it into a rally race car. Text is preferred.
