    My 1975 Mazda R.E.P.U

    This is my newest addition its a 1975 mazda REPU. Im still in the process of going through it all but Im pretty sure I am going to need parts and all that fun stuff so if anyones got some tips about the build or even where i can find parts I would love to hear about it so just let me know! Ive been looking for one of these truck for a long time then one day I came across this truck at the junk yard and had them pull it out for me. I purchased it and now is in better hands LITERALLY haha.

    Heres some pics of my new project.

    we never got these in Aus, so a few people have brewed their own rotary powered B1600's, but this is just awesome. I tip my hat to you for saving it.

    Who in their right mind would send that truck to the junk yard? That thing looks pretty solid,or at least solid enough to save. Good work, I love my 74 REPU,and have been itching to drive it since the late fall,but she never sees the road when the salt is out.

    Thanks guys! Yeah i check ebay nonstop haha and yeah who would send sumthing like this to the junk yard. person obviously didnt know what they had. I just got done checking some things out and so far im gonna need all the vacuum lines, oil feed lines, crank angle sensor, distributor, and plug wires. and more but so far the motor seems to be in pretty solid shape. The trucks also in good shap some rust here and there.

    I finally got around to taking the rear bumper off of my 74 last spring,and I wondered why I hadn't done it sooner. It looks so much cooler without the bumper!!!

    By the way how is it there isn't any snow in your pics? We have tons here in MA,and I would think CO would be even worse.
