Description

Selling my very nice and extremely RARE 1976 Mazda Cosmo Rx-5. These were made to be the "grand touring" of the model line. Featured ground breaking items not typically seen in 1976. 4 wheel disc brakes, 4 wheel coil spring suspension, 4-link rear end and 5-speed transmission just to name a few. This particular Rx5 has been in the family for over 23 years. Zero rust and was stored indoors for 20 years. The paint was new 15 years ago and still looks as good as when it was done. Interior is really nice for the age. The windows roll up and down like they are brand new. Seats must be experienced, very comfy! Dont forget the awesome gauges that light up green at night and gives a instant "classic" feel. 1976 was a different time for Mazda, and the little 13b rotary was going through emissions standards just like everyone else. The result was lackluster performance compared to the Rx3 or Rx4 that preceded it. Luckily that issue has been fully addressed! The original engine was pulled, and a freshly rebuilt 13b from a 1985 Rx7 GSL-SE was swapped in. Which means FACTORY fuel injection! No choke or hard starts. The 84-85 GSL-SE Rx7 engine is considered by many to be the BEST engine mazda ever built. Made like a tank, it was dead reliable and powerful. All while getting extremely good 24mpg! I couldnt stop with just a stock Rx7 engine, so a full racing beat header exhaust sytem was installed and k+n air filter. To hold the extra power a RPS kevlar clutch was installed too. Only issue on the car is the rear shocks are pretty weak, and the left front wheel bearing is making a little noise. Everything else is great.
Dont miss out on this nice rare classic!
