DESCRIPTION

Sleek, sporty, quick, and distinct, the 1988 Mazda RX-7 is a rising star in the world of Japanese classics. And this coupe has all the right things you want, like A/C, a five-speed, and a younger replacement motor. So it's great to see you can get one with all the right features for such an obtainable price.

Sapphire Blue 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, and so you may decide to use some of the cash left over from the value price to update the paint or add your own personal touch. But what we like is that from day one this will deliver a complete and stylish sports coupe. It really has an awesome look with 15-inch factory alloys, bright dual exhaust tips, 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. 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. There's the premium AM/FM/CD stereo with cassette, power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt steering column, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And the rear hatch has enough luggage storage for a long road trip.

The RX7's real calling card was the revolutionary two-rotor Wankel engine. It's unknown if the odometer reflects the car's actual mileage, but that's not a big concern anyway. That's because we have the receipt showing thousands $$$$ invested in a new motor installed only a few years 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. And you get to explore this advantage full with the five-speed manual transmission (the clutch was also replaced at the time of the motor.) Plus, the fully independent suspension, nice weight distribution, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes combine to offer the ideal mixture of performance and comfort.

Compete with maintenance records and the owner's manual, this is the distinct and affordable coupe that loves the open road. So it's time to grab this deal while you can. Call today!!!
