Hey guys, I'm selling my RX-7 that I've owned for past year thats been used as my auto x/track/nice day car. I have more pictures of the car including some of the rebuild the PO had done as well as videos of it being compression tested after the rebuild. Theres ~112k miles on the chassis and ~6k miles on the rebuild. I've had absolutely zero reliability problems with the car. It starts easily every time and doesn't smoke. Since the rebuild, it's always been run with premix. There a few minor issues with the car though. It doesn't idle properly when cold but once warm it idles fine. The AF gauge is not accurate which I believe is due to a bad sensor. The tach works randomly which I believe is due to bad solder joints or capacitors on the circuit board as the PFC displays the correct RPM. Finally, The paint on the front bumper is faded so it doesn't perfectly match the rest of the car. I've done my best to describe the goods/bads and list what's been done to the car by the POs and myself below and I'm sure I've missed a few things. If you have any questions or want more pics, feel free to PM me. Located on LI, NY and asking $13k.

Damn... I've always considered this model to be one of the best looking cars ever built. Unfortunately, I need something a bit cheaper and more practical right now. I'm guessing these aren't the greatest snow cars... GLWS.

Unfortunately not haha. Went to someone from South Jersey/Philly but he'll keep tracking and autoxing it though . Did anyone ever buy the original birthday cake back after the engine blew?
