    1973 Mazda Rx2- Return from the Dead Project-Updated Pics!!!

    All,

    Here is my 1973 Mazda Rx2 that is being returned from the dead for it's second chance at life. These pictures are from it's trailer trip headed to receive it's new power plant, power-train and brake update. Please advise me of some solid suppliers that might be able to deliver on the following:

    Need:
    Original (If possible) interior carpeting- Front and Back!
    As close to stock, chromed side view mirrors, drivers as well as passenger sides.

    Thanks and enjoy, as I truly love these cars!

    Awesome car mate, colour and wheels look great. JDMRX2 will blow his load when he sees this one. RX2 coupes are one of the best shape cars ever made just behind R100s :lol:

    Wow!!!!!!!

    This car looks the business. Have to agree, the coupe RX2 is one of the best looking coupes ever.

    Would love to see more pics.

    Rotary love for ever

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I just found this site a couple of weeks ago, and was really struggling to get a couple of pictures posted. Obviously I got that figured out now and I am so pleasantly surprised that there is a true-to-heart, extended family of Rx2 lovers out there. I have had this car since 1984, and in 2002 I grenaded the motor after many years of wonderful service from it. It has sat garaged for the past 8 years until I finally found the right guy to do the work I was looking to do. I am expecting to get the car back in a week, and once I stop crying the happy tears to have it back, I will get more pictures taken and shoot them out to you guys. Regarding that comment about the R100, I truly understand, as that is my first true rotary love, and would love to bring one of them back to life. I have located one just across town in relatively good shape, but the owners parents are in posession of the car while their son is away with the military. I have tried, but they won't budge at releasing the car.

    Regarding the things I am still looking for in order to get the car road worthy again, I have thought of a couple more items:

    Trunk seal, driver and passenger door seals, as well as window seals or seal kit, since it has sat dormant for the eight years.
    Original or aftermarket headliner, as the corners around the rear window are starting to sag.


    Thank you all for the help and encouragement to get this puppy rolling again. I can't wait!!!!

    Sweet Car :tu: is that a respray or is it factory paint? if the headliner has no tears I'd leave it if I were you, but if you really want to change it I think I've seen it on ebay.com.au, its a reproduction so i don't know how good the quality is. the weather stripping can also be found on ebay.com.au

    Good luck with the car, I can't wait to see more
