    67 Mazda Luce Estate

    Ok so I thought I'd share sum picture's of my current project.
    She's a 67 Mazda 1500 estate fitted with a 1.8 Vb
    This will be a budget build as i'm saving for another Rotary.
    Plans are to paint it
    fix interior
    Lower it and drive.

    I picked It up on ebay for $600 with out seeing the car. Body wise It was good just sum rust in the front guard's.But then I spotted this

    So its a long story but I was the 4th owner in just six month's and I managed to track down the guy who sanded the number away.He turned out to be of no help at all so I went to the cop's to make sure the car wasn't stolen as I didn't want to spend money on it only to find It belonged to sumone else.
    Anyway car turn's up clean so I got to work.

    Thanks.
    Sum thing seemed a bit off with the chassis number.After looking at photos of other 1500 engine bay's i noticed mine was on the wrong side
    So I started sanding and found the the old number was filled over.The numbers are hard to make out but the last two numbers look like Five's witch matches the Id tag.
