    Mazda 121/rx5 1977

    Bought it last week from the old guy. He was planing to put Windsor V8 there but never got to that point. Hi have 2 rally cars and one drag car. Can not say much at this stage but car is totaly drivable and nearly everything working good Suspension is gone on the back and on the way on the front.
    Plans: 1 Seats. Done
    2 Suspension. Back is done. Front on the way
    3 Paint
    4 Dash Replace/make
    5 Interior Fiberglas Doors and rear Shelf maybe if it will be going too good making/modifying dash
    5 Sound Head Unit+2 Amps, Front 6" splits, Rear 6x9 +Sub
    6 Engine. Hoping to put 13bt there later.
    Now Some photos. on the photos it looks much better then in real

    Windows are tinted but ill take the tint off (its all scratched and have holes) and will have to do new later.
    After putting new "lowered" springs(Pedders) and new Shocks(Pedders) car get a 30mm lift











    Thats my previous car

    Here's some shots of a pristine 121 that was for sale in Adelaide 4 years ago.
    How GOOD does it look?!

    Another one saved.
    I can't believe how many RX4's and 5,s where tortured with the Ford Small Block Conversion...
    Maybe there wasn't enough Cortina's to go around....
    Nice clean platform to start with Chuxa.
    One of the worst dash warps I've seen but fixable or can just be replaced.
    Some original front seats and a respray and it will look gooooood.

    I have original seats but they need to be fully rebuild. And due it's not a full restoration project more like renovation It maybe will be done later. Dash really upsets me when I look at it but I'm not going to touch it at this stage. First it need to be beautiful outside and comfortable to drive and then interior work will be done.
