10k Flash: Modified Wankel: 1972 Mazda RX-2 Turbo

The Mazda RX-2 was assembled in New Zealand for world wide distribution and featured a lightweight chassis and Wankel rotary power.  It was known in Japan as the Capella, but for some reason marketed with the RX moniker for export.  Find this 1972 Mazda RX-2 modified turbo for sale in the San Fernando Valley, CA for $9500 via craiglist.

This example splits the difference between project car and restomod - a close inspection of the details is necessary for any potential buyer.

This Mazda is powered by a 13B turbocharged engine, probably from a later model RX-7 and is equipped with all sorts of aftermarket modifications.

Add some paint to the drivers side door, put on some stock looking wheels and this could be quite a nice driver for the commuter.
