We stumbled upon this while looking for something else, but it’s too cool to not share. Someone here needs an old-school JDM sedan sporting one of our favorite engines, right? Last time we checked, the price was $2200.

We list dozens of sports cars and race cars for sale in each issue of Grassroots Motorsports Subscribe now.

And someone here really needs it. It has GRM message board all over it.

still feeling annoyed the mythbusters destroyed a nice/complete corona coupe. this is cool - looking like it's a very long way from me.

To be honest, I saw the RX-7 first while doing my usual search of SCCA. Then I saw the Corona....

If I was still in CA, I'd be on my way to get that RX7 5 minutes ago.

Same. The Corona is cool, but for some reason that RX7 excites me more.

I had a '72 MkII Corona in high school... that's the first one I've seen for sale in many years. Mine was my first car... paid $200 for it!

This one looks pretty rough, but lots of potential. I'd be interested in details on the manual swap, as IIRC MkIIs were all autos.
