    1974 Mazda 808 coupe

    Hi everyone,
    I though I would stick up a couple of pictures of my 808 coupe. 1 previous family owner, all original including the original whitewall spare in the boot. It is really hard to find Mazda 808's in New Zealand that haven't been subjected to a really poor conversion to an RX3 look-alike. And to find a 808 coupe in this condition is almost unheard of. Especially a red one...

    Fantastic! The red looks really nice one it. I had a '73 808 coupe myself. Looks like you have an interesting selection of cars there.

    Fantastic to see another unmolested 808 survive. They are only Original once. Have you got any other piccies of interior, engine bay etc.

    Very nice! I'd be very interested to see interior/engine bay pics too.

    The only thing I have done to this car since I got it is add white walls and the crome trim to the wheels. The Engine bay is what you would expect to see for a 38 year old car, but once I detail it (clean up and tidy) I think it will come up trumps! The interior is in really good nick, no cracks in the dash and still has the original radio! And up until just before I got it it still had the plastic coverings on the rear (you can just see the remains in the picture).


    With a clean, polish and some detailing I think this engine bay will come up mint.


    Original interior


    Rear carpets could do with being replaced..


    And I haven't even done a cut n polish yet..

    Interesting, it looks like a lower spec car. Most of the 808 coupes I've seen have the RX-3 style seats, door trims and the handbrake console. Do the pillar badges (behind the rear side windows) read "SUPER DELUXE" or something else?

    The rear pillar badges just say 'Deluxe'. It think the latter version 808 coupes with the round headlights may have been the Super version with the RX3 Door cards etc but I'm not sure.
