The history on this car is quite extraordinary; I bought the car from the original owner who had only put a surprising 68,000 miles on it. The car had always been serviced with Mazda throughout its life and had never missed a service (log book is complete and up to date). This sort of attention to detail really shows all over the car. There’s not much I can really put into words, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking…

Thanks for all the positive comments guys. Plans are to keep it as it is.
I'd love to track down a US spec L/H side mirror from a RX3/808/RX4... not easy to come by, maybe a US member can help? Believe it or not, it still has it's original tyres on it. I'm grateful that this old Capella wasn't fete to a RX2 conversion or subjected to mother nature. :tu:

Hey, the chrome can be pitted. I'm not really phased so long as I find an original one.
It should look like this..

If you do happen to come accross one, i'd really appreciate the heads up. Cheers

Wow these prices are just so ridiculous :roll: :roll: :roll:
I found a set off of a Ford Courier a while ago and sold it to the guy for like $30.
He gave me $100 and I said wow wow it cost me $12 dollars to get it form the pick N pull. He said Kelly I'm paying you for your time aswell to get it and ship it.
Man it just baffles me how these parts are so expensive.
Boy I swear I find or obtain a old school wreck car and I can sell the parts off of it. I will not sell for these outragous prices. :) :)

200 bucks to finish a perfect car, worth it.

Here is another picture that I haven’t posted yet, which should make the enthusiasts smile.
Complete service history, touch up paint as well as a host of RACV paraphernalia including the original owners membership card (48 years of loyalty).
