Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.05) based on 341 votes

      For sale: 1987 Mazda RX-7 with a Chevrolet V-8 and five speed transmission. This car is in very good/excellent condition with only 42. 44 miles.  I purchased it from the original owner and have all of the original paperwork for the car (warranty cards. window sticker. owner manuals - even a Mazda first aid kit). It has never been painted or touched up - the body and paint are original (no bondo). It looks like it came out of a time-capsule. even the door latches look like new (see photos). The interior is also in very good/excellent condition. There are no wear marks on the original seats and the carpets still look like new with no signs of wear. The car has never been smoked in so it still smells like a 42. 00 mile car. The undercarriage is as clean as the rest of the car - there are no rust holes and it has never been repaired (see photos).

     The Vortec 350 V-8 is a low milage engine that came from a Chevrolet truck (roller-cam version).  A V-8 conversion kit. from Granny Speed Shop. was used.  The engine was partially disassembled. new gaskets and seals were installed and it was re-painted. A new Weiand aluminum intake was installed as well as a new carburator. A new polished Weiand water-pump. new alternator. new a/c compressor. new harmonic balancer. new oil pump and new timing chain were also installed. A new/complete MSD ignition system (ignition box. coil. distributor and wires). new "turbo model" fuel pump and a new fuel pressure regulator was put on. The cooling system was upgraded with a new aluminum radiator and fan. The car runs in the center of the guage. between hot and cold. at all times. The transmission is a Borg/Warner T-5 from a late model Camaro - it also received new seals. the flywheel was re-surfaced. new Zoom Kevlar clutch. new throwout bearing. new slave cylinder and new master cylinder for the hydraulic clutch. The driveshaft was also replaced with a new/heavier version. The exhaust is new/custom and exits in the stock location. The mufflers are Hooker Aero-chambers.

      The brake system was upgraded with a new master cylinder. new brake calipers. new brake pads. new stainless steel lines (replace rubber lines) and new drilled/slotted rotors. The wheels and tires were also upgraded - I have the original aluminum wheels with new tires that will be included in the sale.

     The car has a/c that was working when the rotary engine was removed - I have installed a new a/c condensor. a/c dryer and a/c compressor. I also replaced the o-rings so that the car can be converted to R134a. A local shop is currently making the a/c lines for the firewall and a/c dryer - I will include them in the sale also when they are completed.

      I will assist with shipping however any costs will be the buyers responsibility. A deposit is required at the end of the auction. The car currently has an antique registration plate that will be included in the sale to another PA. resident.

     Potential buyers. with any questions. can call me at (412)758-2232.

     Thanks for looking and good luck.

     While cleaning out my garage today. nbsp;I found rear window louvers for the car. I think they were a factory or dealer option. I will also include them in the sale.

     I have been getting alot of questions via e-mail. feel free to call me if you have any questions.  I installed the V-8 so I am able to answer any questions relating to the install.
