    Mazda 929 Coupe 1975

    Hi all!!!

    I'm Andrius from Lithuania, Europe. Here mazda 929 or even rx4 are very rare cars.
    Car arived to Lithuania from Austria.
    Here are some pictures of my beauty. Engine is V6 2.9 as i don't have original 1.8.
    Future plans will be to put rotary (13b carb or rx7 S5 13b turbo)

    Body was quite good, except sills, wheel arches and some rusts in flour.



    Finaly car is painted. now assembling, everything goes very slowly
    as my garage is in another side of city and I don't have much time.
    But everything goes good way.


    Restored almost everything including suspension. All new shocks, steering rods, ball joints. very hard to get parts

    Hello Andrius, welcome aboard. Excellent choice in projects! Fear not they rust in the same places here in Australia!

    Looks like it's coming along nicely, if you need any parts just let me know, might be able to source them for you here. :tu:

    Now that's a project! And I though finding parts in the US was hard. I admire your ambition. Welcome to JNC!

    Finding parts is verry hard work. i have 1977 mazda 929 coupe in very bad condition, was restoring it for 2-3 years. and then found this body in Austria, first mind was to buy it as donor for parts, but then i get the car - it became a new project. preview 929 1977 now has another owner who is trying to put body on rx7 platform :roll:

    Sometimes postage cost 2x price of parts
    Alredy bought parts from:

    Australia
    USA
    New Zeland
    Sweeden
    Holand
    Austria
    Germany
    UK
    Thailand
    This mazda will be most cosmopolitical :mrgreen:
    Still need some small parts.
    this weekend spent few hours in my garage:

    thanks guys. will keep posting new pics.
    now working on transmision, engine (not original 2,9 V6 shame on me)
    Front brakes original 929 was very rusted so insted of searching new original calipers i placed 280mm rotors with 4 pot calipers from rx7 S5.
    Rear will be disc too. Master cylinder changed from 7/8" to 1" bore.
    Outside - original, under hood no.

    No, I will leave 929 badges, as it is 929. hope will get rotary engine. Badges without engine are nothing.

    Pics will be later, know progres is under bonnet
