I remember having a look at this car back in '08, when down in Chch. I had my sights set on a Series 3 (and eventually bought one), otherwise I would have definitely scooped this up. The first owner/importer was a guy named Reece, who also had a Bellett GT-R and ridiculously mint Series 1 RX-7 amongst other things.
It only had around 30,000km then, and I couldn't find any evidence to suggest the kms were anything but genuine so I'm thinking you definitely scored well
please please please
keep it original! We have enough half-wrecked RX-7s as it is in this country already.
also - if you're looking for MS wheels, talk to Ewan @ hayatonka.com!
Thanks Orion, you run the retro classics site don't you? great site btw
Reece Trotter did own and import this car, would you have his email? I wonder if he knew the back story as to why so low kays on this thing...
You can tell its a 40k car the way the door shuts, the feel of the gearbox amongst other things, and I will certainly keep this original, its simply come to far unmolested to be ruined now.
Besides I want to experience Akio Uchiyama's RX7 the way he intended, not John smiths slammed super turbo turd, if that makes sense?!?
