    Well, what do you want out of the car? daily car? track?

    that welded diff is not going to make a pleasant street car

    um.. you can get a turbo car for 2k. and an na car with similar condition or less milage for 1k. make sure if you do get an FC. to at least get a 5 lug car. the 4 lug cars have smaller brakes and there is a better wheel choice in 5x.. but yeah in my opinion, 2k is pretty steep for an 86' base. check ebaymotors for going prices. or www.rx7club.com for more info

    also that welded diff is bad bad bad. if you decide to turbo it later on, that diff will shatter and leave you stuck(ask how i know) and its not needed if you get an fc with a clutch type lsd to start with.

    ive been into rx7s for about a decade now so i like to think i know what im talking about.

    Yeah for now im just looking at it being a daily driver



    alright thanks man, like i said i dont know all that much about what a good price would be. I'll definatly keep on looking for an rx though, i love the cars. And now that i have that info that you filled me in on i'll know what to look for.
    once again thanks for helping me out with this.
    is that the price for where you live? or just in general?

    in general really. the fc you are describing is not very sought after and the bettr equipped ones arent much more money so it drives the prices down even more.

    value is all in the eye of the beholder..

    here is a mint cherry 87 with less miles than posted and is at 1500

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Excellen ... 06.c0.m245


    here is a convertible rendition sitting at 1800$ without any interest at all

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Covertib ... 06.c0.m245

    here is a turbo with a decent mods list including better ecu and upgraded turbo for 2500

    http://www.rx7club.com/showthread.php?t=859414

    point is. these cars are cheap. i dont hold much weight in value of wheels but i also own about 5x as many sets of wheels as i do cars. anyway. keep us updated. the fc and rotary in general always peak my interest.

    oh and just for fun.. my drift fc before correct body fitment and paint. im about 10k into it and would be excited to get 6 out of it
