GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this low mile, well preserved, 1980 Mazda RX-7. When introduced for model year 1979, the RX7 was an instant success among motoring and driving enthusiasts. The Wankel designed, two-rotor, rotary engine has high rpm capabilities producing more torque than horsepower. This, with its light weight design, 50/50 weight distribution and live rear axle, proved to be a spirited performer on and off the track. The high torque curve meant fast exits from corner apexes and the proven MacPherson struts and coil springs up front kept everything pointed in the right direction. The RX-7’s design was fresh compared to the aging looks of its competition, and Car and Driver magazine made it one of its top picks for 1980.
The 1980 Mazda RX-7 offered here is a wonderfully preserved example sold new at Marty R’s Mazda of Garland Texas. The car remains completely original with the exception of one quality repaint in its original Solar Gold Metallic paint over Seattle Brown Vinyl interior. The car came fully optioned including the “GS” package factory installed rear seat, 5 speed manual transmission, Air Conditioning, Alloy Wheels, AM/FM Stereo, Power rear mounted antenna, Electric Retractable Headlights, Rear Stabilizer Bar, Intermittent Windshield Wipers, Left and Right Door Mirrors, Anti-Corrosion Side Sill Paint, Quartz Clock, Ignition Key Reminder, Body Side Protector Moulding, Electric Rear Widow Defroster, Tinted Glass, Sunshade, Electric Hatchback opener, Driver Side Foot Rest, Tachometer. Since, the car has had 3 responsible owners and has been driven just 51314 miles until our recent acquisition. As a result, this RX7 remains in excellent condition. Mechanically, the car is on the button and ready for immediate enjoyment. The car pulls strong in every gear, the suspension is tight, and the braking is true; performing as it did in March of 1980 when the car was delivered new, and the air conditioning blows cold. Cosmetically, the car has great paint, an outstanding original interior, the original engine bay remains clean and detailed, and clean clean original underside.
The Mazda RX-7 has etched its way into automotive history and is poised to rapidly increase in value. A exceptionally kept, fully documented example such as this is a ground floor opportunity for someone looking to enter the collector car hobby and investment car world. This car is worth the price of admission. Documentation includes: Original window sticker, original bill of sale, original odometer statement, original owner history and original dealer inspection. The car comes complete with original books, full size spare and Jack.
