1979 Mazda RX7 – one owner from new


The Mazda RX-7 is a sports car that was produced by the Japanese automaker Mazda from 1978 to 2002. The first RX-7 featured a 1,146 cc (69.9 cu in) twin-rotor Wankel rotary engine and a front-midship, rear-wheel drive layout. The RX-7 replaced the RX-3, with both models sold in Japan as the Mazda Savanna.

The original RX-7 was a sports car with pop-up headlamps. The compact and lightweight Wankel rotary engine is situated slightly behind the front axle, a configuration marketed by Mazda as “front mid-engine”. It was offered as a two-seat coupé, with optional “occasional” rear seats in Japan, Australia, the United States, and other parts of the world. The rear seats were initially marketed as a dealer-installed option for the North American markets.

The RX-7 made Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list five times. 811,634 RX-7s were produced.

This incredible first generation example has had only one private owner, and is offered with 25,000 miles recorded from new. We have fully documented history going back to 1979, when the car was delivered by Milroy Mazda, Catskill, New York.

The RX7 is supplied with its original bill of sale, payment receipt, all associated maintenance and instruction books, many service invoices, service reports and original brochures.

The car was always been garage stored and only used in ideal weather conditions, as such it has never been repainted. The interior is equally lovely, with little signs of any wear. The chassis and bodywork were protected by a tectyl/wax treatment from new, so as you can imagine are in fantastic order. A truly exceptional car and fabulous opportunity for the Mazda enthusiast.
