  • 2-piece Racing Beat intake w/Sidedraft carburetor (Mikuni?)
  • Header and full exhaust
  • 3-piece rear spoiler
  • GSL disc-brake rear end w/LSD

Need it gone like yesterday. Located in SW Washington about 40 minutes north of Portland. Wheels and carb are easily worth $1000. Taking up valuable space!

Pics of the offending POS...

I's an 82 RX-7 with a rebuilt title. The body is actually surprisingly decent with no visible rust and is pretty darn straight as well. The wing is at John's at the moment, but goes with the car. The tires are Bavarus (popular with the Porsche set) with good tread. The stupid-rare 14" 4x110 wheels are very light. It has a GSL rear axle with disc brakes and an LSD. The carburetor is a Mikuni. The intake is 1-piece, and I have no idea who made it (though it does look like a RB unit). The header, resonator, and muffler are all genuine Racing Beat items (surface rust) and are correct for a 12A.

Questions? Offers? Trades?

I need this thing GONE!!!

Figured out the wheels are Hayashi Street II's (thanks GRM!).

I have a sawzall and plenty of free time (unemployed), so yeah, it will fit in USPS Flat Rate boxes. How good are you at "some assembly required"?
