Good deal for a rusty free roller plus extra parts. I had the same car (color and wheels) in high school. 

Good luck with the sale!

Rx7club would be one. I've been out of the loop for a while. Nopistons may also be viable. 

My guess is no sunroof. Well, my hope at least. Non sunroof is more desirable.

Does it have a title?

FC experts: A 6-port 13B GSL-SE engine could bolt into this correct, if I use the FC mounts, or no? Where was this 6 months ago when I was looking for a roller for my crushed 89 TII with 50k miles on the clock?

No.  GSL-SE have the pad on the left to take a FC engine bracket but they do not have the pad under the oil pan to take the right side mount.


I have an FC subframe in my FB, so I couldn't use the front cover mount when I ran out of FC engines to play with.  So, I used a GSL-SE engine (well, most of one.  A lot of one.  The center housing and rotor housings are GSL-SE, anyway) and used an FC left side mount and made a right side mount out of an extra FC driver's side mount and some more steel.  Only three of the holes can be used and one of those has to be slotted.  Then it broke.  So I reinforced it, and it broke again, so I reinforced it....  I think half the weight of the car right now is that stupid mount, it is sort of a bunch of 3/16" plate surrounding a cracked and broken FC left side mount core.


The bosses are for the HB Cosmo, which also used the GSL-SE engine (called "Super Injection") and I think the 12AT used the same center housing as well.   I assume that whatever Mazda built for the HB sucked almost as much as the morphodition I made, because when they designed the FC they came up with that nice casting that carries its loadings well.

If you take a picture of the rotor housings, and they are in good condition, it may spark some interest.

If you were closer, I'd have hauled this home already, and if I tried to drive that way now I'd wind up salmon fishing instead.

How soon is storage going away? I’m going to offer around scrap price, mainly because of my cost to get it and not really needing another car/RX7.

I also would like to know.  I will probably outbid Andy.
