Hey All,

I'm a certified Mechanic working at an independant Porsche repair shop during the day and rebuild Rotary engines at night lol.

I have a 1972 Mazda 616, check out the thread I posted in the Mazda section.


I've done alot of looking around on Google for info on the 616 and they seems to be a fairly rare car in North America. Are there still lots around? Or do I have myself a gem?

I also have an 85 RX-7 that I'm building into a Time Attack Road Race car, will post pics of it soon.

Hey JoeFerg. Nice Capella! I don't think there were any '72 616's in the US only '70/'71 616's. I believe in '72 they had a 1.8 4cyl and was called the 618. The sales numbers were pretty low and most people bought RX2's so they were dropped before the '73 model year.

I'm 99% sure mine is a 1972 according to the ownership and it definately had a 1.6L engine along with all the 616 emblems.

Maybe its one of the last 71's which sold as a 72?

Canada seems to have got a lot more piston powered Mazdas than the US.
